“Did I get a dud? Had trouble staying lit, decent burn though (when burning). I got the cocoa, coffee and pepper described in CI's write-up, which sounds nice, but I can't quite put my finger on why I couldn't get into this cigar. All the fan mail sounded good too. I guess you've gotta burn to learn.”
“Ya!! these are great cigars. Burn nice and just ordered Pinar del rio limited. Shows most of these cigars are back ordered. Alot of mix tobacco to make these. Had some on back order also. Been buying from CI for years and thanks CI for the on time shipping. Great prices too.”
“This cigar blew me away! Rich, chocolaty and smooth as silk. An absolute joy to smoke.”
“WOW These babies are tops on no. 1 cigar. Buying from CI for years and they're on top of their game. get $1 cigars also and only 2 problems with ashes burning not right.”
“Yummy, Yummy, Yummy. nuff said! Torpedo”
“This is a very pleasant cigar and I bought twenty of them. As I type this I'm smoking the third one. The first one wouldn't stay lit and burned dreadfully unevenly. The second one again had a very uneven burn. I left the rest in the humidor for nearly a month just to see if they would 'settle down' a bit. The one I'm smoking now burns a bit better but nowhere near what I'd call even. I'll leave them in the box a while longer and see what happens. Too bad they're to much work to keep going....they're very tasty cigars.”
“Def: "A Keeper"!”
“Picked up some of these on a daily deal and was very surprised at how well they burned, what a nice ash was created and what a nice easy draw it had. The taste was very smooth and enjoyable throughout. Best pleasant surprise of the week.”
“Smooth, dark, and chocolatey! Great construction, no burn issues with this one. Will def get some more!”
“I have to say that I was pretty impressed with this cigar when I smoked it, I had never smoked any of the Pinar del Rio cigars until the new PDR 1878 Oscuro's came out and then I decided to see how the others smoked.
Much to my delight I enjoyed this one almost as much as the new PDR. I then bought the black box to see if they were any better and was very impressed with them as well. So now the PDR is in my humidor to stay.
A very well built cigar with great flavor .”
“I really love these cigars! I bought 3 boxes of the toro's, and will miss them when they are gone. Makes me not want to smoke anything but Dominicans!”
“I've been smoking these for a while now, and they've become my favorite cigar. Ordinarily would be more than I'd want to spend, but when CI has them on sale I stock up. Great with my coffee or amaretto, and a fine smoke by themselves. Beautiful wrapper!”
“I really like the taste of these but the burn/construction issues listed by others here have been present through the first 8 sticks of 20 that I received. Half were great with no isues what so ever and the other half had serious uneven burn issues and wrappers that got loose. Hopefully that's the last of that. Got these on a daily deal at an insane CI discount. The remaing dozen I have left will determine if I buy PDR Oscuro in the future.
“One of the best PDR's in my humble opinion. A great smoke. A definite box buy if you smoke alot.”
“I recently received three of the Pinar del Rio Oscuro Torpedoes as part of a Pinar del Rio Flight Sampler in a recent offer. I could tell you about how good looking and well constructed these cigars are (and they are both), or spend some time trying to describe how tasty they are (and they are very tasty) or maybe telling you how suprisingly mild and mellow they are (and they are) when an Oscuro might expected to be quite assertive and strong. But I won't do that. Instead I'll describe my reaction to the Pinar del Rio Oscuro Torpedo like this...
Immediately after smoking the first one, I fired up the web browser and ordered two mazos of twenty. Can't offer a much higher endorsement for them than that. I consider these to be a first rate cigar and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I plan to make them a staple in my humidor.”
“Count me on the PDR bandwagon! What a great tasting cigar for the price. Don't light up in a confined space though because the foot on this baby pours smoke. Only smoked the toro so far but will try the torpedoes real soon.”
“Nice cigar with good taste. The draw was very easy and it made lots of smoke. I didn't have any issues with the burn, but it did crack some about a third of the way through. I thought it was on the milder side of medium. I got mine with a sampler, but I would definitely buy again.”
