The much anticipated Blends from the Vault tour will kick off its 2014 run on February 5, 2014 at Three J’s Cigar Store in Davie, Fl. in what will be the first of approximately 40 events spread across the nation. The tour will feature the Toraño Family’s highly acclaimed Vault A-008 which received a 92 rating from Cigar Aficionado, the recently released Vault D-042 and, the Limited Edition Vault Gold VLE100, which will only be available at these exclusive events. Charlie Toraño, President of Toraño Family Cigar Company, wished to introduce an extremely limited edition third blend from the storied Toraño Vault series for this special tour.

Blends from the Vault originate from the family’s cigar “blend book” which was started by Carlos Toraño, Sr. in 1982. The blend book, which is now over 30 years old, has a record of every blend concept the Toraño family has ever worked on. Amongst the blends recorded there are many which the family has released over the years, as well as some blends which were deemed to have tremendous potential, but fell short of the family’s high expectations.

In 2011, Charlie Toraño revisited the blend book and discovered an intriguing, yet unreleased blend, Liga A-008. After a slight modification to the blend, the Liga A-008 was released to the public and so well received by critics that another forgotten blend from the book was modified, the Liga D-042. The Vault Gold VLE100 cigars are yet from another unreleased blend from the blend book, also modified to complement the Vault Series perfectly. The Blends from the Vault cigar series gives consumers a unique glimpse into the Toraño family’s celebrated history.

The Blends from the Vault tour will feature at least two lucky winners at each event. Each winner will walk away with a box of the highly sought after Vault Gold. The Vault Gold represents a blend which was first conceptualized by the Toraño family, but was never produced. Charlie Torano felt it was time to create and bring the Vault Gold to the public exclusively for the Blends from the Vault Tour. The 100 hand numbered, 9 count, gold brick boxes for the tour will hold the only Gold Vault VLE100 cigars ever produced.

Charlie Toraño said: “The Blends from the Vault cigars are a celebration of the Torano family’s legacy and I am extremely excited about being able to share this part of our history with the public. Event goers can count on either myself, Carlos Llaca Toraño or Jack Toraño to be present at each of the Blends from the Vault events and announcing the winners of the Vault Gold Brick Box Giveaway.”

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
