Bucanero Red Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6×52 stick had a fairly ragged wrapper, showing stretches, holes and tears, with seams lifting up. It had a soapy tobacco aroma and a tan, satin leaf. The burn and draw however were not effected, both were very good all the way down with zero problems. Draw was just on the loose side and burn was pretty straight with just slight waves. Flavors were very plain, offering a very mild slightly musty earth from first light to the band, where a slight licorice came in on the finish. If you need a cheap simple mild stick, this is a good option, especially for the price. Total burn time was 45 min. This blend is sold only through cigar.com and cigarsinternational.com and has nothing to do with Bucanero Cigars other than them using the name on the band. It is a short filler hand made blend.

    Thanks for taking one for the team Bryan. You didn’t really mention it in the video, but why did you select this cigar for review?

    One other item I’ve been meaning to ask …
    It would be nice if your site had a master page of cigar reviews. One that had an alphabetized list of cigars, with links to the associated video. That way visitors can easily find past reviews without searching by name.

  • You mean like the one at the top called Humidor? 😉

    I’m not a snob, I review cheap sticks too!

      DOH! Well ya got me … I didn’t think to click that one. I was always going to the Cigar Reviews link under Categories.

    Interesting. I saw on Bucanero’s site the same band on their Windjammer cigar. Did they buy the bands from CI to put on their own cigars?

    You know the more reviews I see you do from the Bucanero line, the more I want to try some of them. They sound like great sticks.
