A premium Fuerte torpedo cigar that looks as good as it tastes. La Caya Fuerte Torpedo is handmade in the Dominican Republic. The opulent La Caya Fuerte Torpedo strong cigars are hand made with ultra-premium tobacco, are individually wrapped in cedar tubes and are aged in their deluxe cedar coffin for over 3 years.
The Cuban-seed Dominican and Nicaraguan Corojo long-fillers from the 2005 harvest are blended and wrapped in a premium Dominican tobacco binder from the 2006 harvest. It's all enveloped in an aromatic and rich reddish Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. The La Caya Fuerte Torpedo has a robust, medium-to-full body taste and a spicy aroma.
The taste follows the name, powerful with a leathery core, a peppery blast and a nice earthy finish. It's a strong cigar but it's smooth and is not so aggressive to be overly heavy. The flavor profile remains steady and gets very smooth in the second half. La Caya Fuerte Torpedo is 6 inches long with a ring gauge of 54. 24 Torpedos are individually wrapped in cedar tubes and hand packed in a cedar box.
La Caya has been making cigars in the Cibao tobacco region of the Dominican Republic since 1997. While they're a well known cigar maker in the industry, they're not well known to cigar smokers. That's because they usually make cigars for other cigar companies, under the company's own brands. Many of their hand made cigars have earned top ratings and praise. A few years ago they decided to take their best tobacco and make a limited amount of ultra-premium cigars under their own La Caya brand.
Only a few boxes made it out to the stores and a limited group of cigar aficionados. Even Smoke Magazine loved these, giving them a 92 rating, and CigarCyclopedia awarded them an A-. After these cigars were extensively aged we bought their whole inventory. We got a good deal and are passing the saving on to you.
