Initial Reactions and Appearance
Sobremesa Short Torpedo is a great looking cigar with a straight cut and no major veins running through it. The unlit draw provides a dark chocolate and leather flavor, and the initial puffs are great.
Sobremesa Short Torpedo’s first third is an incredibly smooth, creamy, and leathery smoke. No burn issues and an incredible taste of flavor make the beginning of this cigar an absolute delight.
The flavors remain unchanged during the second third, but the intensity of the cream and leather ramps up quite a bit. In addition to the intensity, the smoke becomes full-bodied. Each of the flavors are little more difficult to appreciate than in the first third, but the leather taste remains delicious.
The Sobremesa Short Torpedo started off strong in its first third and keeps its quality well into the third. The flavors are the same creamy leather notes, and even though they’re more intense than before, they make this stick easy to appreciate. All around, this is a great cigar for the price.
