Omar Ortez Original maduro torpedo

I used to smoke the sh!t out of Omar Ortez Originals natural torpedoes. They came in these cool bigass boxes of 60 and were fantastic smokes. I would score those boxes of 60 on C-bid for like $150...

The original San Lotano lines are some great smokes, so when I saw this tweaked new line I had to grab one and check it out.

Just a touch milder than the original San Lotano Connecticut. Same...

Warped Futuro Seleccion 109

Never tried anything from this company, so I snagged a couple of singles on C-Bid. These are called a toro, but the head is tapered so I would consider it a belicoso. Nice looking wrapper. The...

Re: Famous Nicaragua Robusto

I remember those! I liked them quite a bit but people weren't really buying them, so they weren't out for very long.

Re: Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf toro

Yep! Can't cut them with a cheap cutter. And removing the bands is a delicate surgery.

Re: Plasencia Reserva Organica Limited Edition 2001 Torpedo

Those are the regular Reserva Organica line. The EL 2001 were a one-batch release. The regular ones are great too, but these were special.

Oliva Serie V Melanio torpedo

I'm not a fan of the Oliva V. But the ratings of the Melanio have been so high that I decided to grab a couple and try them out.
