Toraño Single Region - Serie Jalapa
I'd already smoked my quota of cigars by Sunday afternoon, but on Sunday night after a big dinner my lovely wife says to me: "We ought to go out on the back deck for a cigar?" My reply of course was a no-brainer: "Really? Well, OK..." I didn't want to sound too eager.
Anyway, I made some dark coffee, turned on a little Latin music, and picked out a beautiful, firmly packed, dark wrapper robusto from my humidor. Nice choice!
Toraño Single Region
Serie Jalapa - Robusto 5 x 52
Wrapper: Criollo 98, Jalapa, Nicaragua
Binder: Jalapa, Nicaragua
Filler: El Estero Farm, Jalapa, Nicaragua
You know if you're like me and tend to read a lot of cigar reviews, you probably skim over all the fluff and focus on the bottom-line: Did they like what they were smoking? (Unless of course the author writes something personal - that always perks my interest)
Anyway, so what did I think of this Toraño Single Region? Great cigar! Delicious medium-bodied, smooth from start to finish, perfect draw and tons of creamy smoke. Sweet? Maybe. It definitely had a unique characteristic about it, and that was one of the things that caught my attention. Even the "wifey-poo" commented on how much she liked it. Definitely gotta have one of these again!
My Rating: 9+
