Carlos Torano Reserva Decadencia Cigars!Carlos Torano Reserva Decadencia cigars are considered to be a port-blend smoke. This is because it is made of a blend of tobaccos that come from the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua and Indonesia. The Carlos Torano Reserva Decadencia cigars are aged in French oak barrels from the Wilson Creek Winery in Napa, California. These same barrels house the Wilson Wineries award-winning Decadencia Chocolate Port. This imparts fruit flavors and scents that many of the reviewers noted.

These sticks are available in two sizes, and come in at Churchill (7 ¼ x 48) and Robusto (5 x 50). They are sold as individuals, a pack of five or in a case of 20, and can be purchased online or at the B&M.

The Torano family roots began in Cuba. They have been in this industry for well over 90 years, growing tobacco in the fields of Cuba, Nicaragua, Mexico, Dominican Republic and Ecuador. In the mid-1990s, the family decided to start their own label after years of creating private labels for other companies. This operation is considered to be a premium cigar maker. They pride themselves on making unique and complex blends by using tobacco from the various countries where they grow.

These sticks are said to be a superb follow up to the company’s Torano Reserva Selecta, which received a 90-plus rating. The origin of the Carlos Torano Reserva Decadencia cigars is Honduras. The wrapper is Connecticut Shade, with an Indonesian binder, and the filler is Honduran, Dominican Republic and Nicaraguan. It slots into the mild to medium-bodied category. These would be considered a premium stick, and the price reflects that as well. Before crafting these smokes, the tobacco is aged from three to five years. Once they are rolled, they are placed in the wine barrels and aged for a period of time. This allows for the nuances of the wine that was aged in these same barrels to infuse into the stogies. This does not make them a flavored cigar, but allows the chocolate port to add depth to these sticks that is unique to this process.

What are the reviewers saying about the Carlos Torano Reserva Decadencia cigars? Aficionados state that the construction is perfect. There is minimal veining, and it feels solidly packed with only a little give when pinched. The draw is flawless, and the burn is even and consistent throughout. The chocolate port is the one consistent element from the first draw to the last. The smoke is thick, and the ash holds firm. The taste beyond the port is rich and creamy. Some reviewers also noted a leather taste at the beginning, but it levels and blends well with the sweetness of the chocolate throughout the rest of the smoke. Reviewers stated that the extra kick from the port it kept the smoke interesting. No flavor really overpowers the experience. Instead, they seem to build and blend nicely, and create a rich and complex smoking experience.

Reviewers also stated that this is a great after diner smoke or for a special occasion. Whether the purchase of the Carlos Torano Reserva Decadencia cigars is a gift to a new enthusiast or to add to one’s own humidor, reviewers agree that it is a must have.
