I get a solid first impression from looking at the Asylum Torpedo.  The decorative band gives the cigar an edgy look with its dark colors and the Asylum name and logo that features a big skull in the middle.  The cigar itself looks appetizing thanks to its oily chocolate brown wrapper.  There are a few fine veins and the Torpedo looks smooth overall.  It also feels firm to the touch.  There’s a sweet aroma prior to lighting and the cold taste is of mild tobacco.

I light the Asylum Torpedo with ease and get an excellent draw.  A ton of smoke is produced and the ash is solid and light gray in color.  The burn is even for the most part and only requires a couple of touch-ups.  No re-lights are needed.

Now let’s get into the juicy part of the Asylum Torpedo – its flavor.  The cigar begins with a nice mix of sweetness, wood, and earth in the first third.  The sweetness continues into the second third and a good amount of potent spice comes into the equation.  Chocolate is also noted here.  The spice dies down a bit in the final third and gives way to more chocolate and coffee.  Overall, I’d call the strength medium to full-bodied.

Asylum has made a positive impression with both of the lines that I have reviewed this month.  I think I prefer the 13 over this Torpedo, but both are worthy of a purchase.  The Asylum Torpedo is a good choice if you enjoy Nicaraguan puros and are seeking something flavorful.  A single costs $6, which is not bad at all.  You can also find the Torpedo in packs of five or boxes of 25.

The Asylum Torpedo earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.
