Flor De Gonzalez Torpedo
7 x 52 - Natural - Single
Flor De Gonzalez cigars are a mixed-filler blend unlike no other Cuban sandwich cigar you've ever smoked. Presented in bundles of 25 cigars and priced for savings, these everyday cigars are blended with Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers reinforced with a high-grade Habano long-filler leaf, Indonesian binders, and silky Ecuadorian Sumatra wrappers. The smoke is smooth, creamy and rich in earthy-woody flavors. A great buy for the budget-minded cigar smoker. Order your bundle now!
I almost don t know where to start. I was looking for an inexpensive pack of cigars to fill my humidor until I could afford something better. I saw this bundle for about $25 and thought that fit the bill nicely. I love torpedos and it s rare to find them at such an impressive length. I shouldn t have gotten my hopes up. What makes it even more infuriating is that the first cigar out of the bundle was just amazing, easily on par with a cigar from one of the mid-to-high-range boxed brands. It was all downhill from there. Every cigar after the first was absolute garbage. They are poorly constructed and so loosely packed that I end up with a mouthful of tobacco shreds after every pull, and the smoke coming from them smells like burning newspaper. I have not had a single one, other than the first, burn evenly, with as much as three inches burning off one side while the other side just hangs there. The taste is acceptable, but nothing to write home about. In short, these are way overpriced even at $1 each. You d do a lot better with a pack of Black & Milds, let alone almost any other cigar.
iam a afficianato, and been doing these gars for years, and ill keep on for more years to go, thank u lgcobra
I'll rank this Torpedo at between 75 and 80. Construction is excellent for a mixed-filler cigar, not soft or mushy at all. Burns well with no canoeing and stays lit for the entire smoke. Draw is good with a slight tightness, which I attribute to the narrowing at the head. Taste is somewhere between mild and medium, closer to medium with no harsh or bitter finish on the draw. I've smoked several from the first bundle and so far they are pretty consistent, something you often give up with a mixed-filler. The generous size at 7x50 is a nice bonus and when you figure in the price for 25 sticks, it's an excellent bargain. They're a good cigar for a riding lawn mower session, easily lasting the the entire cut. These ar good enough to place on my 'order again' list.
