Sosa Limitado Torpedo Cigar Review

This 7×54 stick features a dark milk chocolate wrapper with a soft even pack, dry satin feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a huge band with cutouts of the letters showing the tobacco for backcolor and a sweet peppery tobacco aroma. First light reveals a good draw with mild-medium bodied flavors of a very smooth creamy textured soft tobacco and wood with a light leather through the short finish. The first third stays very smooth and mellow with a slightly sweet creamy textured draw with a light leather core. The finish moves to a bright earth, still on the light side and a touch of pepper at the end. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 40 minutes it’s getting simpler, dropping the sweet and the earth through the finish grows deeper, dropping the pepper. The ash holds for a solid third chunk, the draw is still slightly snug but burning well. Ending at 1:05 the draw opens up to a normal amount near the end producing more moke but the same flavor profile. Body also holds, with no strength. The ash holds for a 2nd solid chunk and the burn is perfect. Thank you to Sosa Cigars for providing this for review!

    I agree, the Torpedo shaped cigars are the most meaningless shape of all cigars , a waste of tobacco and a pain to cut to individual preferences. I see you used the Cuban Crafters Perfect cutter and that’s all and well but the Zikar 13 you just have to make 1 cut at about where it took you 3 cuts before you started to light it. Manuel Quesada makes some pretty good cigars and this one might be worth trying … i wonder if they have a Toro size in this particular stick? Good Review.

      I had always used a Xikar until I started watching these reviews and saw Bryan using the Cuban Crafters Perfect Cutter. I decided to get one and found a great deal on ebay. I think I gave like $10.00 or $12.00 bucks for it. I absolutely love it. Especially on the torpedo type cigars. It allows me to make cuts as needed for a good draw without taking too much. The problem I always had with the Xikar when cutting the torpedo type cigars was sometimes I would cut too much. The Perfect Cutter lets me take small amounts off until the draw level I want is achieved. And yes I still use my Xikar on occasion and still love it as well, but I mostly use the Perfect Cutter now. They have the same warranty as the Xikar too and a lot cheaper. They work fantastic. Not as flashy as some of the Xikar ones but well made and work flawlessly.

        I agree with you Irogers ; I too have a Cuban Crafters Perfect cutter and if i happen to have a super premium torpedo cigar such as the Oliva Melanio or a Padron, i will use the Perfect Cutter because that cutter leaves no room for mistakes. I stay away from torpedo’s because of the fuss it takes to cut them , i mean 3 cuts before you start toasting is a bit much. I’ll stick to the Toro’s or Churchills.

    I’ll admit, Bryan, that I get confused when I’m watching your reviews because you get an email & I have the same noise when I get an email so I always have to stop the video to see if it was my email or yours. Great review nonetheless

    Great review, as always, Bryan!

    I despise torpedoes! I have the same objections. The only two exceptions in my coolidor are the La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amor Belicoso and the Old Henry Gold Label Belicoso. They are both made by the Garcia family and these two cigars have such a loose draw that I find these vitolas with the torpedo head to be better. Otherwise, I can’t stand torpedoes.
