The flavors experienced are a whole other story, however. At the beginning, the cigar is overwhelmingly sweet, bringing back memories of its cold taste. This sweetness persists for a while and is later joined by some nutty flavors. Also appearing are some hints of wood and earth. Towards the end, things take a turn for the worse, as the flavor becomes very bitter, making the stick unpleasant and not worth finishing. After smoking it, the Torpedo Miami does come off as medium-bodied.

It's very hard to recommend the Isabela Torpedo Miami. The burn is satisfactory, minus the few touch-ups, but the flavors are not very enjoyable at all. The sweetness is way too dominant and gives the cigar an artificial feel. Combining that with the bitterness towards the end, and you have yourself a cigar worth passing on. Perhaps the cigar was a dud, so you might be willing to give it a shot for yourself. If so, you can find boxes of 25 for around $130, which averages out to a little over $5 per stick. Otherwise, you are better off shopping around for something better.

The Isabela Torpedo Miami earns a rating of 1.5 out of 4 stars.

J. Fuego 777 Corojo Robusto

jfuegopic1

The J. Fuego brand of cigars was founded in 2006 by Jesus Fuego and is produced by Habanos S.A.. The 777 line from the brand, which is pronounced as “Triple Siete”, was introduced in 2008. This line offers smokers a cigar built from quality ingredients that is well constructed, yet affordable.

The 777 Corojo Robusto measures 5x50. The line also comes in three other sizes: the 5.5x46 Corona, the 5.5x54 Belicoso, and the 6x52 Toro. The Corojo Robusto has a filler that is evenly split between Nicaraguan Corojo and Criollo tobaccos. It has a Nicaraguan Corojo binder and is capped off with a Brazilian-grown Corojo wrapper from Nicaragua's famous Jalapa Valley. The leaf used for the wrapper is of significance because it had not been introduced to the American market before and it is also grown by Jesus Fuego's father, which obviously aided him in getting his hands on it first. Strength-wise, the 777 Corojo Robusto is medium to full-bodied.
