Sy Cigars Torpedo in Review
FILLER: Nicaraguan, Dominican
FORMAT: Torpedo (6.125×54)
ORIGIN: Dominican Republic
White pepper | Acacia honey | Lemon zest
Dense & dusty-bright layers. Malty & lovely-musty. Not greatly delineated, but pleasant and smooth. Excellent balance. Contemplative if not fascinating. Cedar structure is softly enveloped in clotted cream. White cracked peppercorns crisp. Soft honey sweetens. Lemon zest keeps it all honest, clean. White chocolate.
Mid-palate features muffled notes of cardamom, cereal grains, lightly-roasted coffee. Creamy there, too. Malty. Almost in a hypnotic manner. Tranquil. A cigar to pair with a daydream? The tobacco is soft, pliable in delivery; exhibiting nice aging. A back-end & finish of sweet/sour suede savoriness. Lingers.
Packed well & brimmingly. Heavy in the hand. Loads of ‘baccy. Draws a tick snug, un-egregiously. Stacks ash admirably & then-some. Burn wavers a tick, self-corrects. Smoke out-put is moderate, with a fusty room-note akin to finish. An enticing if not titillating cigar, easy like a Sunday AM, growing in an intriguing creaminess thru-out.
FINAL GRADE: B+
