Cordoba & Morales Family Reserve Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6×52 stick features a dark tan smooth dry wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a very spongy give and rich wood and hay aroma. First light reveals a loose draw with plentiful full body flavors of a deep peppery earth and leather with a smooth smoke, bit of a bitter wood, finishing big adding more pepper and spice. The first third continues the same basic flavors, dropping the bitterness and some of the pepper & spice, just leaving a near full body core of earth, oily, leather and deep wood with a long smooth finish. 40 minutes in the ash drops at the 1/2 way point, flavors just shift slightly bringing a cream in and the leather back up at the start of the draw. Ending at 1 hour, the last third showed no further flavor changes, but the strength did pickup somewhat, complimenting the full body flavors nicely. Thank you very much to Cordoba & Morales Cigars for providing this sample for review!

    Uno Momento* and I really like that band. I know it doesn’t have a big dude with swords on it, but for some reason I really like it. Sounds like a good stick too, I’ll have to try one.

    Good review. Straight to the point and no B.S. Cigar looks like a winner!

    Sorry I cut off before I a really important Q. Im having a terrible time smoking cigars when it rains. The same sticks burn perfectly at other times and dont seem to be that sensitive. What should I do?

    • Eyeluvwied

      That’s a humidity problem man. I’m no expert, but I would recommend either finding a lounge to smoke in, or keep a separate rainy day humidor with a lower humidity level. The other option is the least appealing and that is to just not smoke on rainy days, but rainy days are probably the days that need a cigar pick me up. Tough situation, I’m interested to see what Bryan thinks.
