Felipe Gregorio Fusion Torpedo Cigar
Right out of the cellophane you can see this is a nice cigar. The toothy Habano wrapper is rolled on with near seamless care and the body is packed firmly full length with no hard or soft areas. The cold aroma is mainly earthy as is flavor from the free cold draw. Once the stick is burning there are flavor notes of nuts and coffee that mix with the earth. The nice burn line leaves behind a soft gray ash that normally holds on to near the half way point, if you try. Most of the time this is a driving cigar so I bump the ash early to avoid a burnt leg and a mess. In the final third a bit more flavor develops with some brown sugar and leather.
Overall this is a solid cigar with it's construction and flavor profile and I will keep buying the Felipe Gregorio Fusion when ever I can find a deal.
