The Carlos Torano Brigade was designed to be a quality cigar at an affordable price. And it delivers. The blend features an Ecuadorian-grown wrapper and Nicaraguan interior leaves and offers a medium-bodied presence in the mouth with a light and spicy aroma. The flavor focuses on a light, caramelized taste with a hint of spice on the finish. The construction is excellent, with an easy draw and an even burn. There is a bit more spice on the finish in the second half, but this is a relaxed and easy-going blend that will be a pleasure to smoke at any time of the day or night. And thanks to its value pricing, you can offer one to your friends as well.
