1876 Reserve Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6.5×52 torpedo stick features a very soft, dry slightly toothy dark tan wrapper with small veins, a few splotches and imperfections, tight invisible seams, even slightly spongy give, a nice head roll and a soft tobacco aroma.  First light reveals a perfect draw, medium body flavors of a very soft, creamy textured tobacco and a sweet kick, with a thick smooth finish and great smoke output. The first third settles the body down at mild-medium, with smooth slightly sweet and creamy textures again of a soft tobacco carrying through the long finish. There is a bit of harshness in the throat, due to young tobacco being used, very typical of these cheap dollar sticks. 40 minutes in at the 1/2 way point I gave it a small extra clip that opened up the draw slightly, producing even more smoke output and improving the draw to perfect. Body is back up to a solid medium with the exact same flavor profile while strength is slowly ramping up, at a medium-full right now making me just a little light headed. Construction is excellent with a razor sharp burn and great ash, although right at this point the stick is getting fairly warm all the way to the band. Ending at 1 hour with an inch remaining the last third continued to get warmer and went to a very dry parched nuttiness. Thank you very much to viewer Ralph for providing this sample for review!
