Vegas de Santiago originales torpedo

I reviewed 3 out of 4 Costa Rica’s Vegas de Santiago torpedos so far, and here is the 4th. The Vegas de Santiago Originales torpedo, 153mm long ring 50 made of 3 year old Costa Rican filler and binder with a Habano seed wrapper from Nicaragua.

What a nice cigar, light wrapper, good construction, a close to perfect burn, light draw, thick white smoke and a firm ash. The flavor is leather and wood which are accompanied by a hint of toast and some cacao. Halfway the leather and wood are decreasing while the cacao grows stronger and near the end some herbs show up, combined with the cacao. The turning point comes very late.

Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, this one is just as good as the Vegas de Santiago puros torpedo.
