La Herencia De Cuba Red Label Petite Torpedo Cigar Review

This 5×50 torpedo stick offers a dark milk chocolate colored wrapper with slight tooth, a satin texture, minimal veins, tight seams, an even slightly spongy feel and a strong chocolate and barnyard aroma. First light revels a rich smoke, creamy texture and flavors of barnyard, a slight sweetness and slightly firm draw. The firth third develops in to the same rich, smooth texture and flavors of a medium bodied earthy sweet leather, with a relatively short clean finish with a hint of pepper. The 2nd third changes to a slight caramel with a core of smooth creamy earth, and a slight increase in pepper but only on the finish. The last bit showed little change, remaining a very consistent blend for nearly the whole stick overall. There was a bump in strength near the center, pushing to a medium-full strength for a bit. Thank you very much to La Herencia De Cuba for generously donating this for review!

    How long do you let your cigars rest before smoking them? At what point do you see diminishing returns for letting them rest vs smoking them?

  • I only purposely let them rest after they have been shipped to let them acclimate humidity. Aging once the cigar has been rolled is very subtle if anything at all, I don’t bother.

    Clean shave!! Must be getting hot in Tampa.
