Review Notes: The Graycliff 1666 Pirate torpedo is a premium cigar that averages around $10 to $15 a stick. Well constructed with a beautiful pre-smell, I lit the end and let it sit a moment before smoking. It had a nice blue smoke and the first taste was delicious. Sweet hints of sweet woods and mocha with a smooth creamy flavor dominated the first 1/3 of the cigar. I am loving this! Half way though, the mocha continued and the strength built to a medium cigar with a touch of black pepper. It was still creamy and spicy during this part but then the delight disappeared. During the final part of the smoke that nasty metallic taste appeared. No way! Not with this good cigar!!! I tried to get this out of my mind, but the metal was still there. Some call it a clean cedar taste, but it aint! I have a few more which I will cook in the humi before another light. Hopefully this will soften the last part of the smoke. Buy again? If not for the finish I would say YES. But there are better $10 cigars on the market.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (8) No (6)
