Pinar Del Rio Seleccion Reserva Limitada Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6×52 torpedo stick offers a mottled milk and dark chocolate appearance with a smooth satin wrapper and firm construction. Burn was very good not needing any attention, with a perfect draw for easy puffs. The smoke was rich and chewy offering great mouth feel with a medium body. Flavors to the first half were of coffee, cocoa and leather with a short clean finish. A bit of pepper on the finish joined the last half, and the flavors transitioned to just a dark rich coffee or espresso, and a touch of leather on the end. Burn time to the last inch was 1 hour and I enjoyed every minute! Thank you very much Pinar Del Rio for generously donating this stick for review!

    BRIAN- Thanks for the review on this one. Cocoa, coffee, and leather are my absolute favorites. I’ll have to try one of these. I just recently tried an 80-cent stick called “Prida”. It was a short filler and tasted like shoe leather.. I actually liked it! lol. Any other suggestions for someone who likes these flavors?

  • I have a Prida waiting too! Good to know what I might be headed for when I get to it! They are sold through CVM.

    I would definitely try a Padron 1964.

    Thanks!

      Thanks Brian. I’ll try that. Let me know what you think of the Prida. It didn’t “blow me away”, but for an 80 cent stick it’s not bad.

  • If you liked these, CI has a crazy cheap deal + Free Shipping on them this weekend only.

    Hi Bryan,

    I’m a bit confused about this. I thought the 2007 had a single band with brown background, with the new ones having a double band with a black background. At least that’s what I’ve been getting from Cigars International. CI says they’re the same as the ones with the black bands, but Abe Flores says that he reblended them. Anyway, your experience is pretty much what I have been getting out of these, too. A really nice smoke and a heck of a deal on Cbid, since that’s about the only place I can find them.

    • Whoever you spoke to at CI was mistaken.

      • JJO

        My mistake! I misread the link from your humidor section, thinking this was the regular Seleccion, not the Reserve. I don’t think CI even offers these online.

        I do really like the regular Seleccion 2007’s, though.

          Bryan, I think all this label changing has got me messed up! Please disregard my last reply.
