Drew Estate Natural Dirty Torpedo Cigar Review
This 5×52 stick features a dark chocolate wrapper with small veins, tight seams, a slight dry tooth and pungent artificially sweet aroma not unlike most of their other lines. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful smoke output, mild flavors barely discernible through the heavy artificially sweetened tip, masking the cigar with syrupy sweet cherry and potpourri flavors. The first third goes pretty quickly in just 15 minutes, giving the exact same flavors mostly from the tip, but subdued. Burning very quickly the cigar finished in just 35 minutes, dropping the ash just before the band in a solid chunk. It wasn’t until the last 10 minutes that the actual cigar flavors came through, with a medium body mix of sweetness from the tip, pepper and a toasty earth, followed by a long finish of the same.
