Alec Bradley Fine and Rare 2012 Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6×52 stick features a dark chocolate mottled wrapper with a very firm pack, oily slightly toothy feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams and rich sweet cocoa and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with medium-full smoke output showing flavors of a zesty pepper and spice on a smooth earth and tobacco core with a long oily finish. The first third shows much the same profile with just the sweetness taking on a bit of anise. Burn isn’t great, going wonky with a very thick wrapper and binder, needing a touchup. Hitting the 1/2 way point 30 minutes in burn continued to be a problem, requiring a lot of attention and double puffs to keep it lit semi-well. Flavors remain the same. Ending at 1:10 where the last bit got hot and squishy, the end stayed consistent. Thank you very much to viewer Terence Glynn for sending this in for review!
