Dominican Sel. 5000 Torpedo cigars are a great buy for the money. Rolled in a silky Connecticut shade wrapper, these smooth-smoking cigars have a well-rounded nutty flavor with an appealing note of sweet tobacco on the finish. Try some, and you'll soon agree that it's a great everyday smoke.

Toasting the end in preparation , this cigar wont remind you of a premuim, its definitely a 2nd class cigar, however the wrapper stays firmly in place and the construction is far superior to most bundles as very few of the 5000 Torpedos ive smoked canoe and i've had over a dozen of them thus far. The draw is easy and loaded with a sweet and even potent at times tobacco taste. The cigar is a solid blend that provides a premium like finish, loaded with tobacco flavour as this cigar has similarities in taste to Rocky Patels. While The blend is likely not aged for very long, it doesnt prevent it from delivering on taste and it delivers bellows upon bellows of smoke from the mid point to the finish. The construction improvement on these cigars is noticable and the blend is stil loaded with taste which reminds me of the spiciness found in Don Pepin's aged blends and Rocky Patel's seconds.less

I've smoked many different kinds of cigars. Ones that have been bitter, tasty, harsh, sweet, peppery, nutty, bland, strong, etc. With this cigar I will now add "repulsive" to the list. Take a green tobacco leaf, drag it through swamp mud, dry it out while adding a touch of sweetness and the result will be this. I absolutely LOVE the Nicaraguan 3000 line so I figured how bad could this be? well, it turns out, pretty damned awful. The only positive I can give it is it draws very well. I'll give the other brands in the Famous line a shot. I just hope they're better than this.less
