President of Toraño Family Cigars for over a decade, Charlie has earned the respect of his contemporaries. Now is the first time a release will bear his name, Charlie Toraño Captiva. Captiva takes its name from a small island off the southwest coast of Florida where Charlie vacations. Driven to produce a blend that would relay the same feeling of relaxation while unwinding on the island, Toraño Captiva was born.
A thick, oily Habano wrapper from Ecuador asserts itself on the outside, while refined Nicaraguan long-fillers add richness to this full-bodied beauty. Toraño Captiva explodes with flavorful nuances including black pepper, currant, and dark coffee with a pleasant spice becoming prominent on the finish. Intriguing and complex, Captiva is a soothing vacation for the senses.
