The flavor of the ACID Five may be a tad bland for some. It begins with a mix of mild pepper and cinnamon in the first third. Things get a little more complex in the second third with more mild pepper, some earth, and sweetness. The final third finishes things off with mild pepper and earth once again. Mild to medium-bodied seems like the perfect description for the ACID Five.

The ACID Five Torpedo impressed me with its presentation, but its lack of flavor did tend to bore me. I can say that it was smooth and mild, but I was expecting more. If you are a Drew Estate fan or want something that is smooth in the morning with your cup of coffee, give the ACID Five a try. Fans of Connecticut wrappers might also enjoy this stogie. The Torpedo comes in boxes of 20 and sells for around $8 per single. I personally wouldn’t pick another one up at that price, but your mileage may vary.

The ACID Five Torpedo earns a rating of 3.25 out of four stars.

Gurkha Empire Series IV

The Gurkha Empire Series is a collection of six distinct offerings from the brand known for its high prices and glamorous packaging. Luckily, the Empire Series strays from the Gurkha norm, as all six of the selections are priced affordably. Each differs in composition, but all supposedly provide a smoking experience that is filled with flavors and aromas. For this review, I will be sampling the Empire Series IV.

The Empire Series IV measures 5 ½ x 52, just like all of the cigars in the Gurkha Empire Series line. The cigar’s filler is a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos. I’m unsure of the binder, but the wrapper is Brazilian Arapiraca. Strength-wise, the Empire Series IV is said to be medium-bodied.
