This thing of beauty is a joy for about 2 hours of bliss. Deftly rolled to a classic Cuban figurado shape, La Gloria Cubana Torpedo cigars serve-up a balanced, medium-bodied smoke that laps the palate with concentrated flavors of earth, cedar, and spice for a very relaxing and aromatic voyage.
1st 3rd - notes of spice, to me...almost curry or chili tasting, as well as earthiness, bold smoke. 2nd 3rd - spice/earthiness, boldness carries over but you start to tast hints of chocolate. Last 3rd, Chocolate notes are defined here. Try eating something milk chocolate after smoking!
Great medium taste with lots of smoke. Draw was a bit quick, but this was probably related to the fact that it cannoed. I'll definately try another in hopes that it burns better/slower.
Surprised there aren't some Torpedo reviews on this site. Smooth, complex, and wonderful - when I want a great smoke, the Torpedo is the one.
This is one awesome cigar! I loved every bit of smoke of it! It had a great cedary flavour that was unsurpassed and incredibly wonderful! One other thing is the price, very affordable and even less expensive that the really high priced cigars! I couldn't let it down. But, I had to, was burnin' my fingers. It's a smoke that everyone, especially those who love pyramids/torpedoes. I rank it a perfect 100!
