The Carlos Toraño cigar brands have long since been a well-respected name in the tobacco industry, producing Dominican, Honduran and Ecuadorian lines. Carlos Toraño cigars are made of the finest Dominican and Nicaraguan Cuban seed fillers, Mexican and Honduran binders, and aged Connecticut seed wrappers, hand-crafted under the supervision of Cuban tobacco masters.
Each Toraño cigar represents four generations of family tradition began in 1916, shortly after Don Santiago Toraño arrived in Cuba from his native Spain. In the mid 1960’s, his son Carlos made a significant contribution to the industry when he introduced the concept of growing Cuban Seed tobacco plants in the Dominican Republic. And today, Don Santiago's grandson and great-grandson continue his family heritage with a handcrafted cigar of unmistakable Toraño quality. You can’t make this kind of cigar without starting with the best tobaccos and Toraño goes out of their way to ensure that criteria is met, selecting choice tobaccos from the Dominican Republic’s Cibao Valley, Nicaragua’s lush Esteli Valley and Valley of Jamastran in Honduras.
The Carlos Toraño Cigar lines have all been highly rated, achieving scores consistently in the high 80’s and low 90’s in Cigar Aficionado, Smoke and other industry trade rags. Our panel sampled each blend and unanimously preferred the Honduran Virtuoso line to the Dominican and Ecuadorian lines. Cigar Aficionado’s Cigar Insider apparently agreed giving the Virtuoso Robusto an 89, the highest rating giving of all the lines rated. They’re well crafted, properly aged, and a pure pleasure to smoke. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
