Gran Habano 3 Siglos Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6.1×56 dark chocolate stick offered a medium body experience with somewhat muted flavors. The wrapper and binder both had very pronounced veins giving one minor burn problem that required an early touch up. The remainder of the burn was not perfect but was self-correcting. Draw was on the loose side and worked well. Flavors of the first third were just a heavy tobacco with pepper on the finish. The 2nd third showed a bit more development with hints of coffee wood and leather but they very quickly dissipated to a mild pepper finish, leaving a heavy aftertaste. The last third got very warm and a little mushy, prompting me to end it just before the band point at 1:45. The one negative thing was the aroma of the smoke off the foot – it was pretty stinky at points and left my fingertips smelling of wet ashtray by the time I finished. Thanks to Shuckins for trading with me for this stick! Photography by BG Pictures.

    I had a couple of these, and wasn’t overly impressed. Like you, I found that they lacked much in the way of flavor. I have also had a five pack of the Cabinet Selection, and they were awful in their construction. Big bunches of stems or large veins in the filler led to a terrible draw and a lot of heat and mushiness in three out of the five.

    On the other hand, I really like the Azteca. Really tasty stick, and the construction was great.
