Big Torpedo cigars by Tony Alvarez are handmade premium cigars that have a nice medium to full bodied taste. The wrapper is an exquisite Maduro sun-grown habano tobacco leaf. The binder and pure long fillers are finely cured Cuban-seed habano. This combination of aged tobacco provides a creamy taste with well balanced and complex earthy, cocoa & woody tastes. It has sweet notes of nuts and finishes with a mild chocolate undertone.
Tony has been making fine cigars for years and these prove his talents. Read about his history and accomplishments below. He personally supervises each roller in the creation of these torpedo cigars, and some of the cigars are even made by the man himself. Each Big Torpedo cigar is 6 1/2 inches long with a ring gauge of 52. 25 cigars are hand packed in a cellophane bundle.
Tony Alvarez is a Cuban Master cigar maker. He grew tobacco and hand rolled perfect cigars in Cuba for Monte Cristo, Romeo y Julieta and Cohiba. He then fled Cuba and while in Miami, Florida rolled for Don Tito, La Gloria Cubana and eventually started CAONAO cigars with his partners. Tony knows cigars so he sold his interest in that company and went to Esteli, Nicaragua to open his own small factory.
His cigars are all totally made by hand, and many he makes himself. He only uses the best wrappers, binders and fillers to make these torpedo cigars. As in the traditional cuban cigar factory, cigars do not leave his factory until he personally inspects them. They are all top premium cigars. That is the only way that Tony knows how to make them.
