Top Cigars torpedo

Walking on Calle Ocho we were invited into a cigar shop called Top. The owner poured us some Cuba Libres and handed us one of his house blends, a huge torpedo with a shaggy foot.

The torpedo’s are packed in huge 100ct boxes and sell for $8 but we managed to talk them down to $6 a piece. The medium dark wrapper has a lot of small veins. The construction is good and the predraw is on the loose side.

I tasted some wood, mild flavored with a mild chocolate aftertaste. There is also a slight salty flavor present. The flavors slowly grow in strength and midway some pepper is noticeable. At the end the flavor is a slightly salt wood.

The smoke starts thin but get thicker along the way. The cigar is medium bodied and mild to medium flavored. The burn is straight. I did discover a beetle hole.

Would I buy this cigar again? Maybe, if I visit Calle Ocho again and I decide to light a cigar in the store.
