The sweet and complex flavors of the Olde World Reserve Torpedo by Rocky Patel are a treat to the senses. Crafted with lush aromatic tobaccos from Nicaragua, the cigar is fenced by a Costa Rican Corojo or a Nicaraguan wrapper. The oily wrapper has a silky sheen and emanates a soft, earthy aroma. This full-bodied cigar provides a rich smoking experience.
At a length of 5 inches with a ring gauge of 54, the cigar is light between the fingers and poses a firm hold. Initially, the palate is introduced to a woody and leathery note that switches to a fruity flavor with toasted nutty base. The final draws are long and intense with hints of bitter chocolate and pepper. The consistent burn weaves a beautiful stack of medium gray ash. Though it is a short cigar, it offers a long, enjoyable smoking time.
