Rumba Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6×54 stick offers a dry soft tan wrapper with minimal veins, invisible seams, a very thin wrapper and a soft wrap and pack with spongy spots here and there. First light reveals an extremely loose draw, tons of medium bodied smoke with flavors of a peppery and slightly spicy dry tobacco with a long zingy finish. The first third burns fast but even, giving sweet woody flavors with a pepper and spice zing especially on the finish. Near the 1/2 way point it gets creamier with a coffee and slight mocha. The last third quickly goes even creamier like a hazelenut and brings up the smoke and pepper zing even more, ending at 40 min with medium-full body and almost full strength making me a bit light headed! Thank you very much to for sending this for review!

    Great review as always. Might as well enjoy a smoke when the lights go out!

    Mr. Glynn,

    I ran upon information about the Gurkha’s His Majesty’s Reserve cigar and wondered if you knew anything about it or ever encountered anything like it. More importantly, I think it would be awesome to see what your review on such a cigar would be like. Point of interest being whether or not paying all that money ($500 a stick) would really change the quality of the cigar all that much. What do you think? How about doing a once-in-a-lifetime type review for Cigar Obsession fans? As far as I can tell, there is no one who has videoed a review of Gurkha’s His Majesty’s Reserve. You could make cigar review history!


    • Frankly I don’t have to wonder because no cigar is worth anything close to that to me. Cigars like that are for marketing.

    I’m sure your right about that. Still it would be an interesting review, no?

  • Very nice review. I haven’t had this one yet.
