Just had my second Virtuoso...

Man, is there a better NC out there? I think I have found my perfect cigar. This thing is beautifully made, burns and draws like a charm and tastes as good as anything I have had.

Is there really a need to smoke anything else, really?

Nope.

Love the Virtuoso.

Carlos Torano product. For some reason, it's not on their website. As stated above, very well constructed and an overall solid performer. Similar in some respects to the Signature line but with a spicier wrapper.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's a Torano, and it's got a sungrown wrapper, and is the fullest-bodied Torano out there.

It's also one of the smoothest Toranos I've had. I never really liked the Tribute, so this is my favorite Torano.

Also, the box is nice - humidor style, and I love 'em - got a box of them aging away in my humidor!

There are several reviews in the Cigar Review forum. The forte is my favorite vitola.

I find them to be ok... I would much rather smoke a Sig.

Smoked my first Virtuoso last week and I was not impressed, personally, I much better liked the Signature I have smoked. I will give the other 4 Virtuoso time to settle, and smoke another in a month or two.

I reserve judgement at this time.

I will say this - the one I just smoked was about 6-8 months old. It was fantastic - better than the one I had fresh, but that too was a really nice cigar. I got to get some aging asap.
