New Toraño Family Cigar Brands Hit the Shelves

The family is also launching Master by Carlos Toraño. This cigar is collaboration between Charlie Toraño and master roller Felipe Sosa. Felipe has been working with the Toraño family for over a decade and has rolled cigars for Toraño rolling events throughout the U.S. This cigar is bold and robust and offers an intense core of spice and pepper, making this a full bodied smoke. It will be available in a 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 ¼ x 52 Torpedo, and a 7 x 50 Churchill.

The release of these two new cigars will coincide with tasting events scheduled throughout the United States. For more information visit Torano Family Cigars on the web.
