Review Notes: This dark box-pressed cigar was a real beauty. It had a great flavor, with lots of wood and an occasional hint of vanilla. Judged on its own merits, the flavor was excellent. However, after seeing the Torpedo placed in CA's top 5 in the annual Cigar of the Year feature, my expectations were very high. In the first quarter or so, there was an unpleasant metallic finish, but this passed once the stick warmed up. At about this time, however, the wrapper began splitting, but this was contained to only about an inch near the lit end, so it did not affect the second 1/2 of the smoke. They had been in the himidor for 6 months at very consistent humidity, so I don't feel like this was the culprit behind the split, but it wasn't that big of a deal and didn't really affect the experience. The burn was fairly inconsistent, but self correcting. For the $3 / stick I snagged these for, I'd say the value far exceeded the price tag.
