Martin Family of Cigars Maduro Torpedo Review
Martin Family of Cigars Maduro Torpedo - 6.25 X 52. Wrapper - Mexican Maduro, Binder - Nicaraguan Maduro, Filler - Corojo. Medium bodied.
Initial lighting taste - Earth and wood.
First third - Spice, Earth with a sweet floral taste and cedar notes.
Second third - Spice continues along with a sweet floral Earthiness and cedar notes.
Last third - Spice, sweet floral and a rich Earthiness. Cedar flavor fades out at this point. Long finish of a spicy, sweet Earthiness.
Construction - A somewhat bumpy dark brown wrapper with a nice oily sheen.
Burn - Straight burn with a white colored ash that was both solid and holds on for an inch plus at a time.
Draw - Very good draw producing plenty of smoke.
Another winner from Martin Family of Cigars that was very complex and balanced perfectly. I found the sweet floral flavor very unique and enjoyable. MSRP for this vitola is $7.50 which I feel this cigar is more than worth. Best enjoyed from middle of the day on. I recommend trying this cigar for a very good medium bodied smoke.
