This is a cigar that I have been trying to find for some time now. Not only did the name draw me in, but I have heard great things about it. I met the owner of Emilio Cigars a couple weeks ago at an event in Delaware and it was then that I decided I needed to try these. So this past weekend I strolled into a cigar shop, and they had a lone box of these. I had to grab it and give it a try.
The cigar looks delicious. The wrapper is a medium shade of brown. There are quite a few veins but none of them were thick enough to concern me in any way. The stick is very solid with a nice spongy foot that made it very easy to light. The torpedo cut very clean and I was ready to enjoy this stick. The pre-light aroma was very sweet and earthy, so this made me even more interested to get started.
There was a mild spice right off of the light. Along with the spice, there were some nice earthy notes came out as well. Once the earthy notes came out the spice picked up. But just as quickly as the spice picked up, it dies back down. There was a nice, sweet honey flavor that was lingering in the background. This flavor stuck to my palate, which was nice.
