Quick Smoke: El Rico Habano Torpedo

18 Nov 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

El Rico Habano Torpedo

Everything about this six inch by 54 ring gauge cigar is pretty mediocre. The flavor, driven by a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, is of spice, clove, and warm tobacco. Pleasant, but a little dry. You get an even burn and a clear draw, but the ash is flakey and the light keeps wanting to go out. In the $4.50 to $5.10 range, I wasn’t utterly disappointed. But I wasn’t wowed either.

Verdict = Hold.

    Completely agree. And I should know. I've received tons of these in sampler packs over the years.
