Graycliff 1666 torpedo

This cigar was a gift from Smoking Gator. It comes packed in cellophane and has an aroma which combines chocolate with horse and barnyard smells. The cigar is 6 x 52 and has a very dark, almost black, wrapper but I suspect that this wrapper is blackened because my fingers turn brown when I touch the cigar. There are hardly any veins on the wrapper, and the band combines beautifully with the dark color. The construction feels good and the draw is fine. The predraw flavor is a full raisin flavor.

The flavor is a bit sweet wood and the smoke feels warm. I can also taste some coffee and after an inch it all becomes a bit creamy. The sweet coffee is becoming the main flavor until halfway where chocolate becomes the main flavor with coffee on the background. I can also taste some spices, but mellow and on the background. After 2/3rd the spice becomes a bit stronger and I also discover some pepper. The chocolate and the creaminess disappear. The chocolate re-appears for the last two puffs.

The smoke is thick, white and there is plenty of it. The burn is ok, I had to correct once but on the other hand, the cigar didn’t die when I had to lay it away for a short urinal break. The ash is almost white and quite firm. This is a medium to full bodied cigar with full flavors.
