powers will showcase a balance between light and dark forces.

 

The Cigar: Carlos Torano Signature-Maduro
Torano Signature cigars are flawlessly handmade with a robust, complex-tasting blend of Dominican & Nicaraguan Cuban-seed Ligero long-fillers, broadleaf binder, and an oily, sun-grown Brazilian Maduro wrapper. CigarAficionado reported: An earthy core with hints of leather and sweet spice, plus an earthy herbal aroma rounded by sweet wood on the finish. Well-balanced, too.
