Quick review on the 6 x 52 Das Boot Octoberfest Torpedo. Bought this cigar at a favorite local B&M in Orlando on a quick trip over. Lots of discounted sticks and this one stood out, with a nice Dark Natural mahogany colored wrapper. The aroma from the foot was molasses and dark tobacco. :dr. Well toasted, first flavors were savory! Salty, earthy, molasses sweet and great tobacco all together. Very nice start. Draw and burn we're going well. Unfortunately, after the first half, the flavors became muted and never returned. At the 2/3 point, it was somewhat flat and not too pleasant, so I ended it there. Overall, this was kind of a let-down, given all the hype that has surrounded this line. Final opinion, not my thing after the half. If it were football, I'd bet on another team. Just my :2

I don't know if you smoked the 2014 version, but if not, give this year's Oktoberfest a shot. Its MUCH better. I had the toro size (Kaiser), and from what I was told, it has a different wrapper, and it made a world of difference, as I've never been a huge fan of previous releases either.

I tried one of the 2014s at a Nat Shermans event. Good cigar, had some punch, and I got a beer stein with it.

I dunno, the name Das Boot just makes me think about the smell of guy sweat, diesel fuel, whatever the hell we called the grease we used on the tubes. :D

I did not like these at all when I first tried them. Waited about 18 months and revisited them and LOVED them. :dr :dr
