Emilio Grimalkin Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6.5×52 stick features a hearty dark brown, rough and toothy wrapper, a very light but firm and even pack, minimal veins, tight seams and a dusty earth and pepper aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plenty of thick rich medium-full bodied smoke giving flavors of a rich oily deep earth, with a smooth creamy texture, lots of leather and a long finish. The first third continues the first light experience, providing an excellent powerhouse of flavors without a strength buzz. Burn is very good, the ash holds on nice and tight. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, flavors shift a bit bringing a dark chocolate through the draw, going to a slight coffee through the finish. Ending just under 1 hour, the last third dropped the coffee going to a very substantial smooth earth flavor and bringing up the strength just a touch. The only negative thing was from the 1/2 way point back, thick bitter tar balls started collecting on the head. Thank you very much to Emilio Cigars for sending this for review.

    Thanks for the great review, Bryan. I have a toro that was gifted to me, and I’ve read good things about this stick, so I’m eager to try it. Hope I don’t get the tar, though. 🙂
