Torano "Vault" Torpedo Review
Torano "Vault" Torpedo - 6 1/8 x 52. Wrapper - Shade-Grown Nicaraguan Colorado. Binder - Ometepe, Nicaragua and Jamastran, Honduras, Filler - Esteli and Condega, Nicaragua. Medium bodied.
Initial lighting taste - Dry cedar and spice.
First third - Spice followed by leather and cedar with notes of citrus.
Second third - Spice, Tangy citrus, leather and cedar notes.
Last third - Spice continues along with the wonderful tangy citrus leather and cedar notes. Long finish of spicy citrus and leather.
Construction - Attractive oily brown wrapper with a smooth texture. No major veins were visible. Burn was straight with a very dark gray, solid ash that held on a couple of inches before falling off. Draw was spot-on with plenty of smoke.
Another fantastic cigar from Torano - I really like what they have been coming out with lately. As many of you know, I am a big fan of this flavor profile - spice, citrus and leather. The complexity was very good and the balance was perfect. MSRP for this vitola is $7.95 which is a great price point for a cigar of this quality. Best enjoyed from the middle of the day on. A definite recommend to try yourself, I think you will be very happy you did.
