D’Crossier Golden Blend Torpedo Cigar Review
This 6 1/8×52 stick offers a medium brown wrapper with a soft satin feel, minimal veins, invisible seams, even firm construction and a rich, oily tobacco aroma with a bit of pepper. First light reveals a medium body of buttery soft, sweet nuts and cedar with a very rich thick mouthfeel. The draw is firm but smoke output is good. The first third develops in to a rich oily buttery nut and wood combo, with soft thick smoke. The draw opened up a bit, still slightly firm but no problem. The burn is perfect, almost razor sharp and the ash is holding in solid as a rock. 35 min in near the 1/2 way point flavors change to a deeper nut and wood flavors with an earthy finish and a touch of pepper. The smoke is still rich and oily, but it’s not as buttery and oily on the draw. Body is medium-full but I have no strength kick yet. 55 min in the cigar completely went out all of a sudden. I had to snip off 1/2″ because it had tunneled badly and had a very hard ring develop at the end. Ending at 1:10, the last third transitions to a minty nut on the draw followed by a buttery caramel on the finish.
