TORAÑO FAMILY CIGAR CO. TO UNVEIL “THE CHARLIE TORAÑO CAPTIVA” AT THE 2014 IPCPR
Toraño Family Cigar Co., respected in the cigar- making industry for nearly 100 years, proudly announces that Charlie Toraño, for the first time, will unveil a cigar under his own name: Charlie Torano Captiva.
Charlie Toraño represents the fourth generation in the Toraño tobacco family. Working alongside his father and industry legend Carlos Toraño for 15 years, Charlie has had his hand in creating unique cigar brands under the family name as well as for countless other major distributors. Charlie, who has held the title of President of Toraño Family Cigar Company for over a decade, felt it was time to create a cigar under his own name which represents his personal tastes and pastimes.
“Captiva, which is a very small island off the coast of Southwest Florida, is my favorite place in the entire world,” said Charlie Toraño. Every year I plan a summer family trip there which serves as my get-away from the everyday. It takes me back to the true essence of cigars. I am able to smoke and simply relax as I feel the pressures of life dissipate with every puff. I am able to reflect, count my blessings, and recharge my batteries. The Captiva cigar is a very elegant and flavorful cigar which represents the slow rhythms of the Island.”
The Captiva cigar is made with a beautiful oily Ecuadorian wrapper and is combined with Nicaraguan fillers that have been specially aged and selected by Charlie. The cigar is medium to full bodied, with notes of coffee, chocolate, and sweet peppery spice. Captiva will retail between $7.95 and $8.95 and will come in 4 sizes: Robusto 5×52, Toro 6×50, Churchill 7×47, and BFC 6×60.
A leader in the cigar industry, Toraño Family Cigar Company is a four generation company currently based in Miami, FL. It enjoys a rich heritage and history in tobacco growing and manufacturing. For more information: www.torano.com.
