kristoffpic2Pull up a chair and relax because it is time once again for two more cigar reviews. This time around, we will discuss both the good and bad that the Kristoff Maduro Torpedo and the La Aroma de Cuba Edicion Especial No. 2 have to offer.

Kristoff Maduro Torpedo

The Kristoff brand of cigars is produced by Exclusive Cigars, a boutique manufacturer founded in 2005. The Kristoff Maduro line was released in 2007 as a follow-up to the Kristoff Criollo line that preceded it in 2006. The Maduro is a Cuban-style cigar produced using the same traditional methods that made Cuban cigars so popular in the first place.

The Kristoff Maduro Torpedo measures 6 1/8 x 52. Other than the Torpedo, three other sizes are offered from the line: the 5 ½ x 54 Robusto, the 6 ½ x 56 Matador, and the 7 x 50 Churchill. The Torpedo's filler is a blend of aged Nicaraguan Cuban-seed and Dominican Cuban-seed tobaccos. The binder is Dominican, and the cigar is finished off with a Brazilian Maduro wrapper. If you are not a fan of the Maduro wrapper, the Kristoff is also offered with a Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper. Made in the Dominican Republic, the Maduro Torpedo is considered to be medium-bodied.

Looking at it, the Kristoff Maduro Torpedo seems to be a pretty standard stick. Not much flair is used to draw attention to it, but then again, its meant for smoking and not to look pretty. The Maduro wrapper gives the cigar a rich, dark color and also allows you to see plenty of oiliness when put under light. There are some large veins that are noticeable and the stick feels pretty firm when given a quick feel. Taking a whiff before lighting uncovers an earthy scent, and the cold taste is a bit sweet. There are two unassuming bands near the head of the cigar that are light brown in color and almost hard to see. The top band shows the Kristoff name and the smaller band beneath it displays the Maduro label.

After lighting up the Maduro Torpedo, the cigar burns very nicely. It produces long, white ash and has an even burn. This is one cigar where keeping the lighter close by is not necessary, as touch-ups and re-lights aren't needed. The draw is decent as well.
