Carlos Torano Noventa La Esperanza
Noventa means ninety in Spanish, as this Toraño was crafted to celebrate the 90thanniversary of the family’s cigarmaking. The light brown, toothy wrapper looks beautiful. I detected sourdough bread on the cold draw. After a one-match light, the Noventa produced bountiful volumes of creamy smoke. Flavors of spice, pepper, and cookie dough pleased my palette for the length of the smoke. The spice and pepper took over in the last third, but they weren’t overpowering. The draw and burn were excellent. Birthed from an online clearance buy, the Noventa came in at $4. Grab a box.
