Tijerinos Torpedo (6 x 54)








Video review HERE.


Tijerinos is a new brand from Nicaragua, blended, crafted, and hand rolled in Masaya Nicaragua by the international awarded Master Blender Juan Flores AKA Juan Puro. These cigars are sold by Bestcubancigars.co

These cigars are available in 3 sizes; robusto, toro, and torpedo (reviewed today).

Excellent price point on these cigars; $119.95 per box of 20 in any size.

They are also available in boxes of 5 for $39.95.

The cigar is a medium brown and fairly light in the hand. Here is a shot of the foot.





The test draw after cutting the cap was effortless. The initial flavors were a sweet grapefruit citrus and some lower level cocoa notes which make the overall sweetness long. The white pepper is rated at a 7. The finish is an earthy cream. 



About an inch in and I'm changing the initial flavor of cocoa to graham cracker. It became more obvious as the cigar smoked. The other flavors are about the same at this point. The cigar is medium bodied.



Close to the midpoint and I'm only 23 minutes in. The front end flavors are about the same with the addition of coffee and dry oak. The finish has changed from an earthy cream to a toasted cream with lingering white pepper. The cigar is still medium bodied.



With about 2 inches remaining the graham cracker notes are the main flavor with the citrus notes secondary. The coffee and oak notes are still around. There is a nice sweetness and a touch of richness to the graham cracker notes. 



The cigar ended just shy of the one hour mark. This has been a fast burning cigar but the flavors were very nice. Smoke this cigar slowly to get the best flavors. The graham cracker notes remained very nice and the wood notes really came out in the final third. The citrus notes remained a secondary or underlying flavor. The coffee gave it a nice base. The pepper ticked up at the end to close to an 8. The finish remained about the same. The cigar ended up medium bodied. On the website they mention these cigars as being an every day cigar and I could see this happening. This has been a very enjoyable cigar. Try them for yourself. Very nice.


Score: 91
