P. Benitez Torpedo Cigar Review
This 6×52 sungrown stick features a a thick and rock hard very dark brown mottled wrapper with a couple prominant veins, slightly lifted seams, a smooth oily feel and faint manure aroma. First light reveals a very good slightly snug draw with plenty of smooth medium bodied smoke giving flavors of a very sweet peppery earth with a bit of spice through the sweet finish. The first third develops much the same, just bringing the sweetness down a bit and the pepper kick up, especially through the long finish. Draw opened up slightly and is now perfect, with a very good burn and smoke production. The half way point comes about 35 min dropping the ash in a solid chunk, dropping most of the pepper and shifting to a deeper smooth earth. Ending at 1 hour the last third stayed cool right to the end, keeping the same flavors from the last transition. The only change in the last half has been the strength ramping up to at least the body point, giving me quite a rush and kick at the end. Thank you very much to P. Benitez Cigars for providing this for review!
