Description: I’ve had this cigar sitting in my humidor for a month or two, a gift from Doc Stogiefresh. The cigar is beautiful, and a fantastic work of art. I love the dark maduro contrasting the silver bands. The wrapper is a bit rough looking, but has some crystals on the wrapper. This is one of those cigars that I sat inspecting for a few minutes before lighting it.

Camacho Triple Maduro Torpedo CigarThe Triple Maduro doesn’t pull any punches, starting off with some woody and espresso flavors. It gives off a ton of white smoke while your puffing on it, but not much sitting in the ashtray. I did have some burn issues that required some touch up, but it evened up after awhile. The first half was mostly espresso, and dark chocolate with some creaminess to it. I really wish I would have eaten more prior to smoking this cigar, it does have some strength to it. About the half way point I noticed some black pepper kicking in occasionally, but it didn’t overpower the other flavors. This cigar burns very slow and after 90 minutes I was surprised to be only two thirds of the way through it. Time is running short though, and I was really starting to feel a buzz kicking, so I had to set it down.

Verdict: A great full bodied smoke, that would be fantastic to unwind the day with for the smoker who loves a cigar with some kick. I will warn you though, this cigar is not for you if you haven’t gotten used to fuller strength cigars.

Similar Cigars: This is a tough call, but I’d say if you like this cigar give the Camacho Diploma or La Flor Double Ligero Maduro a try.

I have to admit this cigar intimdated me a bit. It just exudes strength and that’s about right, but now I’m hooked.

Triple Maduro? Based on that alone, I’d love to try one of these.

This cigar is a beauty. Tons of flavor. I pulled about 7 or 8 different flavors out of this bad boy. A bit pricey, but well worth it.

Nice review.

Fantastic smoke. If they weren’t so pricey I’d smoke these exclusively. In the meantime I’ll pick up a box and stick them in the back of my humidor for special occasions.

Let me say my favorite cigar is the CAO Mx2…I love maduro and a larger ring. This cigar was absolutely beautiful looking…stunning actually. It is a very strong smoke, but very nice for 2/3 of it which was well over an hour of puffing for me. If I wasn’t used to the Mx2 as a lady I would not have been able finish it, but it is worth the try for someone on a special occasion even if they don’t smoke a bold cigar usually.

I have smoked about thirty of these cigars this year and if they werent so damned spendy id probably smoked twice that. I’m a big maduro smoker and this one is the king of the maduros. Its full-bodied, tasty and not for the faint of heart if you are not accustomed to full-bodied cigars.

I’m a true full blooded Maduro smoker.I think I’ve tried just about every Maduro I could find in the States. They call this a Triple Maduro but I feel it’s one of most balanced smooth Maduros that I’ve recently had. Would I buy a box of them? Considering I smoke Maduro,s almost exclusively I guess I will. Explaining it to my wife will probably be extremely difficult.I guess I’ll get her a box to in order to keep her out of mine.
