Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo

Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo 1
Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo. 6x54. Nice build with smooth veins and leaf end. Dark brown leaf, nearly Maduro, with some darker shades. Cut and lit well. I went with a slanted cut on the torpedo tip and the crown held perfectly. This aggressive cut often reveals the craftsmanship of a torpedo wrap. Draw was easy pre- and post-light.

First half taste has a strong hard wood impression. Dark earthy spice and bitter nuts coat the tongue through a roasty, almost charred wood aroma. Second half began with a mild pepper tone, earthy herbal notes, wood taste throughout. 

Ash was mostly clean, flaky, with dark spots, delicately holding nearly two inches before a prompt drop. Burn was uneven at the start, corrected by the first third with a bit of flame, only to stray again at the midpoint. 

This is a fine cigar, one that starts and ends with a continual wood expression over dark spice and flat herb flavors. The draw was mostly smooth all across, needing more frequent puffs at the end. The aroma was consistently roasty wood, but the burn needed cradling down to the band. It's otherwise a well constructed smoke that provided a pleasing hour session.

Special Thanks to for providing this cigar for review. This was my first Sobremesa, prompting me to seek out more them.

From the company:

"Sobremesa's Torpedo Tiempo cigar has roots from a familiar name that's known by most cigar lovers all over the world. Steve Saka, once of Drew Estate, has re-emerged with his very own brand: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust and one of the most luxuriously rich and savory cigars to be unveiled in recent memory: the Sombremesa Torpedo Tiempo. Loaded with seven different tobaccos, the Sombremesa Torpedo Tiempo is a cigar aficionado’s delight and an exercise in blending mastery. The Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo is built around a filler blend of Viso, Seco and Ligero tobaccos from Nicaragua, as well as a Pennsylvania Broadleaf from Lancaster County. These tobaccos are tucked into a Matacapan Negro de Temporal binder leaf from San Andres, Mexico and then surrounded by a La Meca Habano Rosado wrapper leaf from Ecuador developed by the Oliva family. The result is a truly magnificent 6.0x54 gem. The hour or so Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo experience begins with a thick woody undertone that ties together lively spice, earth and coffee notes. The medium-to-full bodied journey grows ever more complex as dark fruit nuances expand the broadly textured strokes painted with each lasting puff. Crafted by the experts at Joya de Nicaragua using the finest tobaccos available that have been blended to maximize taste and minimize harshness, the Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo is a must-have treasure for anyone in search of big taste without a bite."
