Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo at Mareva Lebanon

Have a Cigar: Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo

Name: Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo

Country: Nicaragua

Shape: Torpedo

Size: (6 inches x 54)

Strength: Medium

I’d call the Sobremesa Torpedo Tiempo an okay cigar. It’s not excellent; at the same time, there’s nothing disappointing about it. Briefly put, I got what I paid for.

The cigar has a nice maduro color, and it smells nice. It burns evenly, somewhat gently. I could smell and taste baked chocolate cake topped with a little cinnamon, some wood dipped in vanilla, and floral afternotes.

Overall, okay.

Name: Caldwell Long Live the King Mad MoFo Super Toro

Country: Dominican Republic

Shape: Parejo

Size: (6 inches x 54)

Strength: Medium

Bought a couple of these for a night out with my cousin. The Mad MoFo is a good cigar to pair with all sorts of beers, especially stouts and porters. It’s a cigar big enough to keep you company while you nurse a few pints and good enough for you to enjoy the brief silences and the small breaks between beers.

Have a Cigar: EP Carrillo Pledge Sojourn

Name: EP Carrillo Pledge Sojourn

Country: Dominican Republic

Shape: Box-Pressed

Size: Toro (6 inches x 52)

Strength: Full

A masterpiece. I smoked it until my fingers burned. EP Carrillo’s Pledge Sojourn had an excellent draw, and it produced enough smoke to form a whole cloud in the sky. I paired it with espresso and sparkling water.

The Pledge Sojourn is a potent cigar. Very powerful, as powerful as an epic poem. When I closed my eyes, I saw Achilles, I saw Beowulf, and I saw the daredevils of Sassoun. It was as if the smoke had summoned them.

I got a harmony of notes: wood, burnt caramel, black pepper, earth, and red roses on fire.

I loved this cigar.
