Carlos Torano Virtuoso Short Cigar Review

September 4, 2009 · Posted in Asides, Short Cigar Review 

Pre-Smoke: Good looking cigar without too many imperfections. It is tightly packed. I have smoked a couple of these in recent weeks in the car and while doing work and they have been solid cigars, just nothing special. I am smoking the Encore vitola (4 3/4″ x 52) for this review.

Smoke: Good draw, the burn is a little uneven and this is a medium bodied cigar. Not a lot of flavor to speak of. Some spice and cocoa but they are all just loitering in the background. Really, the main thing I am getting from this cigar is just smoke.

After-Smoke: If you are looking for a cigar that doesn’t have much flavor but is fundamentally sound (it draws and burns well enough) then this is the cigar for you. If you are looking for a cigar that has a complex mix of strong flavors then you should look elsewhere.

  1. [...] my Twitter buddy, SentinelX, for suggesting this cigar. I think he saw that I didn’t like the Toraño Virtuoso and wanted to make sure I smoked a good one next. Thanks! Cigar Stats Double Corona Length: 7″ [...]
