The Carlos Toraño Family Cigar Company released the new Toraño Vault Cigar at the 2011 IPCPR Tradeshow in Las Vegas. The story behind the Vault is actually an old story. Carlos Toraño Sr. and the other family cigar blenders, record all potential blends into the family's special "blend book." This fabled blend book is considered priceless for the Toraño’s, and they store it under lock and key.
To produce the Vault, Charlie Toraño scoured this same book and found a blend they developed in 2000: blend A-008. This particular blend impressed Charlie, because it had great potential but was missing an important ingredient and was never released. After revisiting this blend, Charlie Toraño realized the missing ingredient was Ometepe tobacco, which is grown on the rich fertile soil of the volcanic island of Ometepe, in Lake Nicaragua. Using complex Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos in conjunction with this Ometepe ligero binder, the blend produced a spicy full-bodied aromatic cigar with solid rich earthy flavors.
The cigar is finished with a Colorado Shade-grown Habano wrapper that produces just the right amount of spicy to balance the blends earthy flavors.
These award-winning cigars don't stay on the shelves long, so don't miss out on your chance to try a piece of Toraño family history!
