Any of you guys tried this line yet? Just got a couple of churchills in and will be trying them soon. I've never had any of the Torano lines.
I was about to say that. The 1916s are true sipping cigars....go too quick and you will have a not so good experience. Smoke them slow-- you'll get more out of it.Yup, very good. Prefer these to Silver actually. Not a mild smoke that Toranos are usually better known for, this stick has some spice while being flavourful.
Might want to watch the draw a bit, can get real wavy burns if smoked too quickly.
How long did you rest them? What humidity?I had one today...It was an average smoke I'd say. Most of my experiences with the Torano's have been the same. Decent smoke, but not something I will be buying more of. The only exception is the 1959 Gold. I really like that alot, and it has become a regular.
Give them a little more time. Raise humidity a little. Check back this summer. And do take your time with it.I dug one of these (corona) from the box last night. I checked the reviews for this cigar before trying it and noted the comments about this being a sipping cigar.
As much as I tried to keep the cigar cool, it stayed overwhelmingly bitter and I chucked it just past the half way point and grabbed a Cubau to get the funky taste from my mouth.
Mine only had a few months on them at 65% so I will revisit later.
Least favorite of the Toranos at this point.
