tres reynastres reynas torpedo

The flavor profile of the Tres Reynas Torpedo begins with a first third characterized by pepper, earth, and coffee.  Chocolate comes into the mix in the second third, as do wood and some sweetness.  The final third is a mixture of coffee, pepper, and sweetness.   Despite the pepper’s appearance, the cigar never gets too strong and seems to sit right in between medium and full-bodied throughout.

Once the Tres Reynas Torpedo was finally down for the count, I can say with ease that I’m glad I smoked it.  The cigar had the perfect combination of strength and flavor, and its burn was just what the doctor ordered.  I would recommend the Tres Reynas to fans of Maduro wrappers, and I think it’s a decent pick for beginners too, despite its peppery profile.  You can get a single for $7 to $8, which is not bad considering the quality of the cigar.  The Tres Reynas Torpedo can also be found in packs of five or boxes of 20.  I’d pick up a pack of five at the very least.  You won’t be disappointed.

The Tres Reynas Torpedo earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

1502 Black Gold Toro

1502 is a brand produced by Global Premium Cigars.  The Black Gold is just one of their three lines, all of which boast Nicaraguan tobaccos.  Here’s a description of the three 1502 lines, as listed on the company website:

“In our brand 1502, you will find three lines totally different from each other, being 1502 Emerald the “Fina Fuerte” (Fine Strong), 1502 Ruby of medium strength and 1502 Black Gold with strongest character. Three spectacular bindings that exclaim the Nicaraguan flavor, which will delight at all times and will make an unforgettable experience.”

It comes as no surprise that the Black Gold line is listed as the strongest, but I’m prepared for the punch it could pack, as I’ve already filled up on a nice meal.  Now let’s get on with the review….

The 1502 Black Gold Toro measures 6 x 50 and has a box-pressed shape.  Other sizes in the line include the 6 x 56 Conquistador, 6 1/8 x 50 Perfecto, and the 6 x 50 Torpedo.  The cigar’s filler is Nicaraguan, and so is its double binder.  Completing the composition is a Maduro Sun Grown wrapper.  As I mentioned in the intro, this is categorized as a strong, full-bodied cigar.
