Swag "Fierce" Torpedo Review
Swag "Fierce" Torpedo - 6.5 X 52. Wrapper - Dominican (Ligero Habano), Binder - Dominican (Ligero Habano), Filler - Dominican (Ligero Habano). Medium - Full bodied.
Initial taste - Wood and spice
First Third - Spice, citrus and woodiness
Second Third - Spice amps up, citrus, wood and some notes of leather. Good balance up to this point.
Last Third - Strong spice, citrus, wood and leather notes. A slight sweetness is also present. Continued good balance. Very nice long finish of citrus and spice.
Construction was very good, as was the draw. Burn was razor sharp producing a light gray ash that holds on.
The flavor profile was very good and I really enjoyed it. Very well balanced with good complexity. MSRP is $6.20 for this size which I feel makes this an excellent value and one that can be enjoyed on a daily basis without hurting your wallet. Definite recommend.
