Gio Torpedo is our latest addition to the Gio Alejandro line of premium cigars. Like its cousin, the Gio Serie I, this handsome torpedo-tipped cigar is wrapped in a beautiful Connecticut leaf. It is filled with luxurious tobacco from the renowned Estelí, Nicaragua region. Its handsome appearance is complemented by a sumptuous, presented in a beautiful Connecticut wrapper that is velvety in texture; the construction is impeccable and noticeable upon first light; the drawing is razor sharp and fills the mouth with a creamy smoke. There is a light sweetness in the flavors of coffee beans and light spices; we also noted some almond nuttiness. The body hovered around medium, increasing slightly towards the finish.
