Casa Torano Churchill

Casa Toraño Churchill Cigar

Score: 8.8

Attractive light brown wrapper, evenly rolled with very few veins. Good cap. Tobacco is evenly packed throughout.Cigar lit up evenly and burned clean exposing a white & light grey marble ash that was a little on the flaky side. The smoke was very creamy and drew easily starting out with a sweet, mild taste, very much like a Macanudo but later bloomed into a very flavorful medium-bodied cigar. The cigar smoked consistently down the line. My sample burned a little less evenly than I expected at first (the cigar was a little on the moist side), but evened out beautifully by the 1/2-way mark. Overall, this cigar was well-balanced, and improved in flavor as it smoked, with a long, semi-dry finish and rich cedar wood aroma. Excellent. I give this one an 88.
