Don Lino 1989 Maduro Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6.5×52 box pressed stick features a dark chocolate mottled wrapper with a very squishy pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams and a sweet chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plumes of plentiful medium bodied smoke showing flavors of a smooth light earth and wood with a fairly short finish of the same. The first third mellows a bit going even whispier with a slightly sweet earth core and a roasted nut coming in through the oily finish. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 40 minutes flavors shift by bringing the sweet nuttiness to the front and the light earth fades leaving a smooth longer finish. Ending at just over an hour, the last third changed the generic sweetness to a bit of a dark plum, mixing well with the nut. Construction was flawless all the way down. Thank you very much to Michael DeLorenzo for sending this in to review I greatly appreciate it!

    Another great review! I’ll have to give this stick a try. I have never tried any of the Don Lino line.

    Nice to see you fixed the intro! Always good to permote the sight before the stick.

    • Veinless

      Agreed. Good work.

    Had a chance to smoke one while visiting Calle Ocho. While not a fan of smoking any freshly purchased cigar, this one smoked very well while strolling the Miami cigar district. Price point was right there, too.

    I have a bad experience with other Don Lino cigars
    Thanks for this review

      Ditto, the San Andres particularly, but this one seems right up my alley. I really like to smoke cheap box pressed sticks while working on cars, so this one is screaming my name.

    OH YES!! There was definitely a joke there. Great review brother!
