Just had my first Virtuoso

Wow, what a nice cigar! I have to say I like the entire Torano line, but this was a beautiful cigar. I have never really seen a cigar that I would describe as "oily" - this cigar was oily. It looked wet, like the cigs in cA advertisements.

Perfect burn, great draw, lots of smoke, nice meaty/oily taste. If you haven't tried one of these, you really need to do yourself a favor, they are a very nice smoke.

As much as I like Torano products, I've got to get some of these. There are too many positive comments to be wrong. Looks like Torano has another winner.

Great stick! I agree on the wrapper.

At the RTDA I found these to be very blah, but I suspect those may have been too fresh, because like other folks I have really enjoyed the ones I have smoked from tobacconists' shelves the last few weeks.

Nice smoke. You gotta hand it to the Toranos, they make a consistently tasty cigar. :>
