Warped Cigars Private Blend Torpedo

 

The Private Blend Torpedo from Warped Cigars does not have the cool Egyptian names of some of the other cigars from the brand, but its title of Private Blend does stir some interest.  The Private Blend is wrapped in airtight foil bundles for three months and new batches are made in the same time intervals.  The Private Blend line is considered full-bodied and is made in Little Havana.

The Private Blend Torpedo measures 5.5x52 and also comes in a smaller Petit Corona (5x42) size.  Its filler is a blend of Nicaraguan Condega and Jalapa tobaccos that add spice and nuttiness to its flavor and the same can be said for its Nicaraguan Condega binder.  The Private Blend has a Ecuadorian Maduro wrapper that adds chocolate and coffee to the overall flavor profile.  The cigar is topped off with a Cuban triple cap.

The Private Blend Torpedo is a good looking cigar, although I am not a huge fan of the band near the head.  The band bears the Warped name in the middle along with an eagle insignia and the location of Little Havana towards the side.  It’s the colors chosen that are odd.  Black is fine, but the lime green used for the font is a bit odd, but it does scream “new age.”  A nice touch to the band is that it is stamped with the actual date the cigars were rolled.  The cigar itself has a nice dark wrapped with a tinge of red in it as well as an oily sheen when held under light.  A few veins are present and the cigar is lumpy in spots.  Before lighting there is a bit of an earth scent and flavor to the stick.

The burn of the Private Blend Torpedo is pretty uneven and requires occasional re-lighting.  The ash is nice and solid but the draw is a bit tight.  The flavors are excellent.  You get a good dose of pepper, coffee, and chocolate in the beginning.  Eventually you start to notice a sweet fruit flavor, along with some cedar and earth.  The flavors were very pleasant to say the least.

While the flavors of the Private Blend Torpedo are enjoyable, the burn can be a bit irritating.  If you can surpass this issue, you have a good smoke on your hands.  You can get a single for around $6 or so, or pick up a pack of five.  It’s a good cigar to have with a cup of coffee, especially if you like full-bodied cigars.  For its great flavors yet burn issues, the Warped Private Blend Torpedo receives three out of four stars. 

I hope you enjoyed my reviews of Warped Cigars.  Give them a shot, and see you next time!
