DESCRIPTION: Wilson Adams is a relatively new cigar company whose inaugural cigar is made at the Nestor Placensia factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. It took 8 months and 30-40 different blends before they came up with the one that the company was ready to release. The cigar is composed of a blend of Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos and is wrapped in a dark Ecuadorian Habano leaf.
They currently have one cigar line with four different sizes: the No. 2- a standard 5 x 50 Robusto, the No. 4, a 6 x 52 Toro, the No. 5, a 6 ½ x 56 Toro Grande, and the cigar I’m featuring today, a 5.87-inch by 46 ring gauge No. 3 Corona Gorda. Pricing for the cigars is quite reasonable with a pricing scale that runs between $6.50 and $8.50 per stick, depending on the size.
FEATURED LIBATION: Castoro Cellars 2006 Due Mila Otto
This is the eighth version of this Bordeaux based blend. This wine is only produced when the winemaker feels that the harvest is outstanding enough to warrant making this wine. This wine comes in 750ml bottles and weighs in at 15.9% ABV. The cost is $35.00 per bottle or $26.25 for Wine Club Members.

DOC’S CIGAR POSTSCRIPT: Toraño Vault A-008 Robusto
I first featured the Toraño Vault A-008 in Episode 297 back on Sunday, December 11, 2011. Now, after over a year of extra age, I pulled out my last two sticks for this postscript review. These cigars have been resting in my humidor for a total of 1 year, 3 months and 13 days.
