In the Toraño family, there's a super secret book of blends that dates all the way back to 1982. This comprehensive “Blend Book” houses all the secrets of the Toraño's success over the years. Once in a while, they dip into this bible of tobacco blending to create something new that has roots in the past. In 2011, it was the highly regarded Vault Blend A-008. Now, Vault-042 was created as a stunning follow-up.
In 1998, Charlie Toraño and his father stumbled across a rare and lovely breed of Pennsylvania Broadleaf with some highly unique qualities. They knew that they wanted to use it in a blend, but initial attempts fell short of perfection and ultimately the idea was tabled. Now, the near-magical leaf is being revisited. This cigar is comprised of an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and blend of Nicaraguan and Pennsylvanian long-leaf fillers. It's incredibly complex, with a spicy-sweet flavor profile that lingers on the palate. Slow-burning and expertly constructed, it burns 100% evenly the whole way through. In short, this Vault-042 was well worth the wait.
