Wrapper was way to sweet for me, it taste just like sugar water, not for me. The cigar itself was great, awesome draw, great tasting cigar, the burn was a little off but not a problem! Just be aware of the sweet wrapper, A Grade cigar if you like a cigar with a flavored wrapping.

"Good, but short"
I'm a huge fan of Drew Estate cigars and this one does not disappoint. Great flavor, draw and plenty of smoke. If it were an inch longer, it would be perfect. I take my time with most cigars and I barely got 45 minutes out of this one.

"A great intial experience"
Love this cigar with a dry red wine. I was totally pleased with it. As one reviewer said, I wish it were just a little longer, like an inch and a half.

"Dirt Torpeo - my new favorite from Drew Estate"
This is my new favorite from Drew Estate. If you like the Java, then you will love this cigar even more! The one thought that comes to mind while smoking this cigar is Cocoa Puffs!! Great construction, good amount of creamy smoke and a chocolaty finish are what this cigar is all about. I am cuckoo for this cigar!!

"Sweetened Wrapper Doesn't Hurt The Taste"
Smoked my first one of these last night and it was pretty good. Complimented with some congnac the flavor really came through. The first thing I noticed was the sweetened wrapper. I have found that when a cigar is "flavored" like this it's because they're usually trying to hide something. No so here! The full flavor of the cigar came through. For an inexpensive smoke, it wasn't bad at all. Only lasted about 45 minutes though that's not really a problem. I found it to get a little hot near the end, but that also did not ruin the experience. I will, most likely, buy a box of these to keep around as a good general smoke.

This is one great cigar. Only wish it was in a longer size. Leaves you wanting more. Fantastic flavor all the way down to the nub. My new favorite!!

If you're into Acid Cigars, you'll like this one. In my humble opinion, I'd call this a toned down version of the Kuba Kuba. Sweet wrapper, aroma from the 'essential oils'.
Not as strong as the Kuba Kuba.

"Who Knew Dirt Tasted So Good!"
Drew Estates is well known for its eccentric collection of botanical flavored infused cigars. The Natural line of cigars offers smokers and Drew Aficionados a milder alternative to their more aeromatic and flavored lines. It is important to note, however, that the Natural Dirt Torpedo, is not an entirely "natural" tasting cigar, it is still flavored, although not as heavily. The Natural Dirt Torpedo is well constructed and has a tappered head with a handsome pointy end. The cigar has a beatutiful, slightly oily dark wrapper with a fine tooth. Upon the nose, this torpedo has a delicious and appetizing sweet, earthy prelight aroma. The prelight draw is very good, a bit on the loose side, and upon the lips the prelight taste is sugary and nutty with hints of hazelnut, vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Although this is advertised as being a more natural tasting cigar, the wrapper was dipped or infused with some sort of flavoring or sweetner. The vitola lights well and burns evenly with very aromatic, sweet smoke. Despite its prelight impressions, this cigar does smoke a bit more "natural" tasting than the other Drew Estate lines. I'm not certain if the filler tobaccos are imbued with any flavorings like the wrapper. Considering Drew Estates habit of using cryptic names and descriptions, I'm not sure we'll ever know for sure what's flavored and with what ingredients they're flavored. My personal impression, is plenty of hazelnut, caramel, and hints of spiced chocolate with notes of earthy coffee bean. The cigar smoke was light-medium with a smooth, creamy mouth-feel. The taste and aroma, although flavored, were refined and subdued, not at all too strong or overwelming. In fact, it was a perfect blend of natural tobacco aroma and taste with a subdued and refined sweet, nutty flavoring. I never thought "hazelnut" would be a word I'd be using to describe a cigar I like, but this one is a winner and I recommend it to anyone looking for a flavored cigar that is not too over-flavored and that still has some of its underlying tobacco flavor shining through. Who knew dirt tasted so good!
