Ambasciator Italico Torpedo

Ambasciator Italico Torpedo

Ambasciator Italico Torpedo 1600 900 Giuseppe Mitolo

The new cigar produced by the Moderno Opificio Sigaro Italiano, the Italico Torpedo, is already on its way to tobacconists. This cigar marks a turning point for the Venetian company. For the first time, they not only made a completely handmade cigar, but also use long filler leaves, in Carribean fashion with a wrapper and binder. For more product details click here.

Italico Torpedo

The Torpedo is wrapped in a luminous Colorado shaded wrapper. To the touch, considering that the Kentucky tobacco leaf has a heavier texture than the Caribbean variants, it is quite smooth with rather pronounced veins. Construction is good, while the draw is excellent.

Italico Torpedo

Ambasciator Italico Torpedo: unlit, a strong note of carob, followed by natural rubber and wood, can be perceived.

Italico Torpedo

The opening is dominated by a good sapidity enriched by an acidic nuance. Flavor-wise, it expresses itself with notes of fresh wood, followed by pepper and nuts, as well as a nuance of coffee. Strength is medium (3/5).

In the central section, the flavors evolve, in addition to the fresh wood of the first third, into a noteworthy spiciness, but also herbs and earth. Strength increases slightly, becoming medium – full (4/5).

In the last third, the acidity gives way to a slight bitterness. The flavors do not change much. Besides fresh wood and spices, only a discrete earthy note is added. Strength becomes full bodied (5/5).

Overall, the Italico Torpedo is a cigar that is not an easy smoke. The duration of almost two hours, added to a increasing strength, make it a product for lovers of Kentucky tobacco, but Caribbean smokers will find a powerful digression in this product. Flavor-wise, it presents an interesting profile with particular notes and excellent intensity. Too bad for the last third, that does not bring much else in terms of evolution.
