Hello once again my cigar brothers. I have for you this week, the Victor Sinclair Legacy Double Maduro Torpedo. I have found these cigars in four sizes, although Victor Sinclair’s website only lists three sizes. These cigars come in a Churchill (6 7/8 x 48), Robusto Grande (5 1/2 x 50), Torpedo (6 1/2 x 52) and the size I found on Thompson’s website was the Shorty (4 1/2 x 48). I only really see these cigars for sale at Thompson’s Cigar and they are $70 a box for any size which equals out to $3.50 per stick.
Giving the stick the once over and I notice some pretty prominent veins, a small hole in the outside wrapper and a band in a nice silver and black color. When I sniff the cigar I get a slight hay from the wrapper and a bit of a bittersweet chocolate and tobacco from the foot.
As a side note, this cigar has a foot band and it came off very cleanly as it slid right off the end.
Putting some flame to my Victor Sinclair Legacy Double Maduro and I notice it really has an abundance of flavor right off the bat but no power to speak of. I am getting a bittersweet chocolate along with a little bit of spice and woodiness in the first few puffs.
Cigar has kept up with the mildness as I continue to burn through the first half. I still get a little hint of spice along with the bittersweet chocolate and almost a grassy undertone has crept in.
Rounding out the first half and I was getting a pretty harsh spice taste every couple of puffs that I hope does not hang around for the rest of the cigar. Other than the harsh spice I was getting a bit of the bittersweet chocolate and a woody taste. Most of the grassy taste left after a few puffs.
Heading into the second half of this Victor Sinclair Legacy Double Maduro and I am surprised at how mild the cigar is. I am still getting a good bit of flavor but no noticeable nicotine or strong body.
Getting a bit flavorless here towards the end. I am getting a slight cauliflower taste along with basically tobacco. I also notice that the ash is getting a lot flakier. In the first half I ashed twice. Both times it was a solid chunk of ash. Here in this last half the ash has been flaking off regularly.
Ending out my cigar and the flavor really has gone away a lot. Every now and again I will get a taste of something other than burning tobacco but mostly just a harsher tobacco taste.
My final thoughts on the Victor Sinclair Legacy Double Maduro in the torpedo size is, it is a decent cigar for the price but nothing that will overwhelm you with power. I think the flavor is very nice in the beginning but it seems to drop off towards the end. Some of them drop off sooner than others.
Would I buy it again? Sure. If I could get a box at a great sale price I would snag one to keep around but at regular price I would try and find a 5-pack or split a box with others.
