Canimao Torpedo Review:
Canimao Torpedo Review - 6 X 52. Ecuadorian Sumatra, Binder - Ecuadorian Sumatra, Filler - Dominican & Nicaragua. Medium bodied. Aged one year.
Initial taste - Cedar & spice
First third - Cedar, spice and cinnamon notes.
Second third - Now the cedar takes on a creaminess along with the spice and cinnamon.
Last third - Very nice creamy cedar, spice and cinnamon. Long finish of creamy cedar and spice.
Construction - smooth light-brown wrapper with no major veins. Burn - razor sharp with a light gray solid ash that holds on. Draw was perfect producing plenty of smoke.
An excellent cigar with a very enjoyable creaminess. The complexity and balance were very good. I think the extra year of age gives this cigar more of a creamy flavor. MSRP for this vitola is $6.80 which is a very good price point. Canimao is making some great cigars - definite recommend.
