FrontRunners: Select Smoke

    Carlos Toraño Casa Toraño
    Carlos Toraño Cigars created Casa Toraño in 2000 as a private family blend, an unbanded cigar that was offered only to company insiders and cigar-convention attendees. Response to the blend was so enthusiastic that the Miami-based company has made Casa Toraño available to the general public. The cigar’s spicy wrapper, grown in Ecuador from Connecticut seeds, counters the mild blend of Central and South American filler tobaccos. The result is an intensely flavored smoke that remains accessible to novices. Casa Toraño cigars are available in four sizes; shown is the 43¼4 x 52 robusto. (from $4.50 each) www.torano.com
