El Cobre

10-10-06 been in humi since 9-21-06

El Cobre by Oliva Torpedo 6.5 x 5

Wrapper: Maduro from Connecticut, USA
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua




Pre-light smell is earthy. Pre-cut taste is sweet and creamy. Cut with a double edge guillotine. Unlit Draw is firm and the taste is a spicy sweet.


The first few puffs are creamy and a hint of sweet with a slow building spice. It takes a quite some time for the spice to hit. Very black pepper and leather.


First ash was accidental. I brushed against the arm of my chair at about ¾ of an inch. Until that point it had been a razors edge perfect burn and a perfect ash. The taste is full and earthy and peppery. The aftertaste holds the spice and a hint of sweet comes on.


Half way point. I have never seen a cigar burn so evenly. On a scale of one to 10 this gets an 11. The ash is straight and even and strong. Very full flavor leather and earth with no bitter. Sweet and spice. The sweet is mild. There is a lot going on in this cigar. The draw is a bit tight and some more time in the humi may do it some good. I’m impressed with this cigars strength. I’m glad I ate. Very strong and very relaxing.


Two inches left. This cigar has kicked into high gear. The initial taste of leather is instant. There is no ½ second to wait before the flavor hits. The spice is constant but not overpowering. The finish is quick and earthy. Very nice. This cigar makes me want to take a nap and sitting down is good.

The last few puffs are of warm earth. They are spicy and full. I’ve got a good cigar buzz.
