A bit of news about a new cigar that is coming out in the Toraño line.

“AFTER 90 YEARS IN THE TOBACCO BUSINESS, TORAÑO COMMEMORATES THE OCCASION WITH THE NOVENTA.
In 1916, Don Santiago Toraño emigrated from Spain to grow tobacco in Cuba’s Pinar del Rio region. The family’s holdings grew to 17 tobacco farms throughout Cuba before the Toraños fled the island in 1960 after Castro siezed their land. Now, having become cigarmakers, the Toraños will release the Noventa (Spanish for 90) Series. The Nicaraguan puros have a wrapper grown in Pueblo Nuevo, near Esteli, and will come in
three sizes: robusto, toro and torpedo.”

From Cigar Insider

This is what one Toraño rep had to say about them on a forum discussion:

i have actually been lucky enough to smoke a couple of final release candidates. like the cigar insider article says, it’s a nicaraguan puro. the wrapper is gorgeous and oily. it’s got a slightly cocoa powder/reddish hue to it. it starts off as a mild to medium cigar but builds into a solid medium plus. to me, the most impressive thing about the cigar is it has an explosion of flavors yet maintains a smoothness not seen in very many cigars. the cigars are still young, but given a little age, i really believe the cigar will pick up the butteriness pams have. now i’m NOT saying these are in anyway going to be pams, i’m just saying that smoothness is evident in the noventa.

these cigars will definitely not blow away those guys who have lfd double ligero for breakfast, but it should hit those guys who love a full flavored cigar.
