Flor de Oliva Natural Torpedo Description
This Flor de Oliva Natural Torpedo cigar is made in Nicaragua. Outside, you'll find a Indonesian Sumatra wrapper. Inside, the binder is Nicaraguan, and the filler is Nicaraguan. This is a Torpedo cigar with a length of 6.00 and a ring gauge of 52.
I enjoy the complexity and depth of this chunky torpedo. It’s a very fun and interesting smoke. When I find a deal on Padron 1964 Torpedo Natural cigars I stock up because I think the ‘average price paid’ for these is slightly outrageous.
I don’t know why some cigar lovers continue to pay so much to smoke Cubans when sticks like this and the Padilla 1932 Torpedo are available. I gave up overpriced Cubans a few years ago when I started finding NC’s of this magnitude and overall quality. It rates very high in every important category.
This cigar draws a little too tight – I’ve had 3 – until about 2 inches in and then it loosens up to just right. Burn can be a little tricky. Beyond those minor flaws it offers quality flavor in the medium range with crisp leather, roasted coffee beans and Mexican-style spices present. For the money I’d take 1 Natural by Drew Estate Big Dirt Torpedo and 1 Camacho 1962 Torpedo. Fair? I think so.
I took this one right down to the nub and it just kept getting better – more flavor and never harsh. The 1964 Torpedo Natural is the best stick in this prestigious label, if you ask me. It tastes fantastic and the torpedo shape really lets the deep, full tobacco taste and power shine. It’s got good body as well.
