Review Notes: I picked up this Natural Dirt Torpedo in a sampler of new RTDA releases. I haven't tried anything in the Natural line, but I thought I'd give it a try on this chilly, but sunny, Sunday morning with a cup of Killer Beans (Kalossi Knock Out). It is a rough appearing short torpedo shape with heavy veining - some of the heaviest I've seen. Interesting, yet undefinable, prelight aroma. Construction seemed a little off with a soft spot near the head and the feel of potentially being a bit underfilled. Easy light. Smooth draw. Razor sharp burn without the need for corrections or relights. White-gray ash and a ton of white smoke. Started immediately with an intense sweetness and the taste of pipe tobacco. This was joined by mild herbal flavors, a hint of toffee, and vanilla notes with a grassy finish in the first third. The middle third brought out woodsy flavors, citrus (particularly lemons and lemon zest), and fruit (? melon) with a hint of menthol. The last third was a medley of the above flavors but with a cleaner finish. All in all, this 35 minute aromatic smoke was not as sickeningly perfumy as the ACID's I've tried, but the sweetness and flavors are definitely more along the lines of a flavored cigar. I actually thought it was an interesting change of pace - not something I'd smoke on a regular basis, but perhaps every once in a while. Not bad on a Sunday morning a few times a year, perhaps.....
