This is known for being a medium to full bodied cigar. The cigar is wrapped with a brazilian sun grown maduro wrapper, a Honduran binder, and a Nicaraguan filler. Unlike other reviews the first taste of this cigar has a dark rich flavor. This cigar is almost like having a rich dark chocolate that is unsweetened. Everyone that I know that like Carlos Torano cigars says that this is one of his best. This cigar is a little to harsh for me. I would prefer a CAO La Triviata maduro or a Partagas Black label cigar to this one. So if you are a fan of Carlos Torano cigars this is for you, if not try one of the other two cigars I recommended.
