The Carlos Torano Loyal blend boasts specially selected longfillers from Nicaragua and the DR, plus a Nicaraguan binder rolled in an oily Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. Expect a solid, medium-bodied smoke, that laps the palate with a spicy, peppery start, then builds to a banquet of rich flavors with notes of coffee and brown sugar. Loyal provides value, quality, consistency, and most importantly, an abundance of flavor, says Charlie Torano. Presented in boxes of 21 cigars, order your box now.
Hints of cedar and coffee, with a touch of a sugary taste. Burn, construction, and draw had no issues and was perfect.Medium cigar. Worth a purchase, as I will repurchase more.
This is a good Sumatra. Compares favorably with La Reloba Sumatra and Rocky Patel Edge Sumatra.
The cigar started off with a nice pepper blast that was complemented with a light roast coffee kind of fruity , a light earth, a minor amount of generic woodiness, a little cream, and some sweetness. The Aroma is extremely sweet smelling and reminds me of toasted sugar. The finish was clean, relatively short, and creamy; which was surprising considering that it was kind of a dry textured smoke. The strength was mild medium to start and the body a light medium. The draw was absolutely effortless but not excessively loose.After ~20 minutes the cigar transitioned to a dark woody oak, deep earth, with leather making an occasional appearance. The pepper became less pronounced while the creaminess, light coffee and sweetness remained and helped compliment the overall flavor profile. The finish became moderately long while the strength and body maxed out at a low medium. The aroma and foot smoke was extremely sweet smelling. For the next 20-25 minutes the cigar pretty much stayed the same with an interesting and occasional entrance of a rich butter and an interesting prune type flavor. The construction was very good but the wrapper is quite thin and it was damaged when i removed the band. Exercise some caution with the wrapper because it seems to be on the delicate side. The final smoke time was slight more than 1 hourFor the price this is a shockingly good cigar. The aroma is incredibly sweet smelling and the flavor and body builds up and maxes out at a nice medium. The flavors are really quite rich while the finish remains relatively clean and moderately long.
