Oliveros Eight Zero Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6.7″x52 stick features a dark brown oily wrapper with a slight tooth, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a firm even pack, nice looking head roll and a rich chocolate and barnyard aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw, great thick smoke output, a medium-full body sweet tobacco, cream and black pepper smoke with a short clean finish. The first third develops a bit of a lop sided burn, not needing any corrections yet but not putting off great smoke. Flavors are a peppery cedar with a growing finish of the same. Ending at 1:30 whee it began to get too warm for my taste, the last third showed no further transitions, ending at medium-full body with no discernible strength. Thank you very much to viewer Jeff Oda for providing this sample for review!

    Glad you enjoyed it! The Oliveros cigars seem to be easily overlooked. I really like these and they do get better with more humidor time. They can be had for a bargain price at cbid.

    Thanks for the review.

      I realize this reply is a little two years since your original post, but I found this little beauty from a friend of mine and I like it too.

      CI had these on sale a while back for like $50 for a box of 25. Not bad! =)

      I can’t really describe the taste but its got a nice ‘spice’ taste to it that I like. The draw is exactly how I like a cigar to be as well.

        Unfortunately, it no longer shows up on Oliveros’ website, so may be discontinued. I’ll have to grab what I can soon.

          Can still get them on Stogieboys.com
