I purchased the Brocatus Torpedo 2-fer because of some encouraging words printed in the monthly sale catalog description. I was expecting something better than what I received. These cigars are only slightly better than the CI Fresh-Rolleds. The smoothness is on the mild side to start, but by mid-way, the effect is more of a medium-full cigar. The firmness is “spongy” and my mouth tends to make indentations into the cigar. I prefer a firmer, more tightly packed cigar, but some may like the softer feel. This might be what is causing it to burn a little hot. The burn is fairly even for a cheap cigar, but drop the ash more often than on your Olivia. On the positive side, this is a good sized cigar for a low price, so I am not disappointed because I got what I paid for. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a horrible cigar to smoke. It’s a great every day cigar and a good value. I just think it fell a little short of the build-up it received in the catalog.

I tried the Brocatus Cigars last year and found them to be a great cigar. Very mild, and after ordering these three times, I still never had a bad cigar yet. All burn evenly & have a great mild taste.
