Torano Family Cigars, are thankful for all our supporters and fans. We would like to take a moment to reflect on the very exciting 2013, made possible by your support.

We kicked off the year with a very cool national contest. The Grand Prize Package was an all-expense paid trip to Miami, where the winners got to sit courtside during a Miami Heat game alongside Charlie Torano. As it turns out, the winners of the contest were not the only Torano fans at the game as you might have seen pictures of Lebron James and Dwyane Wade enjoying Exodus ’59 Gold and Salutem Cigars after their championship win.

Also during that first quarter of the year, the much anticipated partnership between Torano and Leccia Tobacco hit the ground running. We also began a distribution deal with Palio Cutters and Lighters, known in the industry as some of the best cigar accessories, a great addition to our portfolio.

As summer rolled around, planning for the IPCPR was in full swing. This year we unveiled not only Torano blends but Leccia as well. Torano launched two new blends, Vault D-042 and Exodus Finite. We also redesigned one of our flagship brands, Reserva Selecta and also added a 60 ring gauge line extensions for our Vault A-008, Casa Torano and Cameroon 1916. Leccia Tobacco released Black and White. Black was the first release of the partnership and it featured Kentucky darkfire tobacco. All additions and changes were extremely well received by the industry and public alike.

Fall brought us some unexpected changes. Our VP of Sales & Marketing, Bruce Lewis, made the decision to move back to Australia with his family. Though we will miss Bruce, we are very excited to work with our new National Sales Manager, Miguel Schoedel who has been with our company since 2008. Miguel brings a wealth of experience to the job and he will be leading Torano in 2014 and beyond.

In the last quarter of the year, we kicked off the “Blends from the Vault Tour.” that will feature our two Vault blends as well as a chance to win 1 of only 100 boxes of Vault Gold. The Tour will run well into next year in shops nationwide.

As we say goodbye to 2013, we do so with an eye on 2014. We just can’t wait to get started! We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and to wish you and yours a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2014. And don’t forget: Always, always MAKE TIME TO BURN.

From our Family to Yours.

The Cigar Nut

Size: 4 7/8 x 50 (Cuban Press)
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro
Binder and Filler: Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru and Brazil
Strength: Medium to Medium-Full
Price: 12 Pack Box Set roughly $70.00 usd

Just A Taste

Yes, we have another great cigar from the Cuban Press Box Set, today it is the CAO Brazilia Cuban Press. Just like the MX2, the LX2 and the Italia, this cigar remains true to the original Brazilia blend that many of us have grown to love (or hate for some haha). The Cuban Press, although toted to be a bit more flavorful due to the shape, does not seem to be talked about nearly as much. Check out my quick ‘Just a taste’ review and find out if this is a diamond in the ruff or a dud no one speaks of!

Smoking, often seems like a cheap way to unwind at first, but little by little, the full price smokers have to pay for their habit shows itself to be one that is too expensive for many. Everyone knows that smoking can (and does) increase the cost of doctor’s visits, and can even raise the price of your health insurance. Generally speaking, when people talk about how expensive a habit smoking happens to be, they are talking about both the large sum of money smokers pay annually for their nicotine fix as well as doctors’ bills. They forget other issues that smokers often have to deal with – and some of them are quite surprising.

Cleaning Up Is A Mess

The problem with being a smoker, at least in terms of cleaning, is that it is exceptionally hard to keep the smell of burnt tobacco and tar out of your clothes, blankets, hair, and home. So, if you want to keep your home as fresh enough to keep those allergic to tobacco smoke comfortable in your home or car, you will need to invest a lot of time and money in your weekly cleanup routine. Believe it or not, those laundry bills and rug shampooing costs do add up quickly. And, if you do smoke indoors, you will have to deal with stained walls, musky furniture, and a higher level of dust and ash in your home’s environment. Hopefully, no guests will be too allergic to smoke when they visit you, but once in a while you will end up meeting someone who has serious problems with cigarette smoke.

Your Career Suffers

Another hard to remember fact about employers is that they are allowed to discriminate when it comes to a person’s smoking use. In fact, many employers generally will not hire a smoker if there is an equally qualified nonsmoker available. Smokers are more likely to earn less money in the same jobs as nonsmokers, and they are also more likely to be passed up for raises and promotions. Managers have even been known to get concerned about placing smokers in popular people-to-people situations, simply because there is a social stigma attached to smokers. Along with the higher healthcare costs managers have to deal with when hiring a smoking employee, it can be enough to keep someone from getting the job that they really wanted to get.

Social Situations Can Get Weird

Though it’s not always a problem, smoking can take a small toll on your social life as well. If you’re the only smoker in a group of nonsmokers, you will feel strange when you have to light up a cigarette alone outside. Dates who hate smoker’s breath may shy away from kisses. Smokers also have to deal with the rude comments of people who don’t smoke and are vocal about their dislike of the smell. Of course, physical issues that harm your ability to keep looking your best, such as wrinkles, are also commonplace among smokers. These kinds of costs are generally subtle, but over time they can get to be quite aggravating.

There’s no lie in saying that a smoking habit can cost a lot more than you’d bargained for. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t cut your losses by quitting the habit. After all, you have a lot you can lose by not quitting, as well as a lot that you can regain by ending the habit.  Visiting your family physician or scheduling an appointment with a new doctor may be just the push you need to quit smoking.
