Casa Fernandez Copacabana Torpedo Review - Now Available On Sale at Atlantic Cigar

The Copacabana Torpedo has a light chocolaty brown appearance, and seems to be well packed. The foot gives off a strong aroma of sweet leather and tobacco. Although Torpedo's are not my favorite Vitola, I'd figure I give this one a shot. Being a big fan of most everything Casa Fernandez has to offer I'm sure this will not be a let down.

Upon lighting I'm greeted with some nice light easy going flavors, with some sweetness on the finish. The draw is a bit loose, but nothing to complain about. I had a hard time digging up much background information on this cigar besides the fact that it was blended to be "medium" in body and that the wrapper used is a Cuban Seed Corojo 1999. Despite a hint of spice on the retrohale through the nose, for Casa Fernandez, this is decidedly milder compared to their other lines. Definitely not Mild by any means however, so far I would put it right in the solid medium body category. The flavors are interesting and multidimensional. I was not expecting this kind of depth from a $5 cigar, but I'm getting it!

As the Second Third starts, some spiciness comes to the forefront and lingers on the finish. Although the cigar is still fairly tame strength wise, to have some red pepper spice on your lips and tongue is an interesting dynamic. Usually you only get this kind of up-front spice in a much fuller bodied cigar. Definitely a new dimension to a medium bodied smoke. It has many of the characteristics of a full-body cigar without the knock out strength. This is no easy feat in the blending room.

The Copacabana has an interesting aroma, a sweetness with a grassy or hay-like smell. The cigar has a nice complex array of flavors at this point, the sweetness, a very leathery or earthy taste as well as the perfect touch of spice. The balance of all these elements is great, a truly enjoyable smoke so far.

The last third is very much a continuation of the second with some flavors accentuated. The body is still very medium, possibly medium-full towards the very end, with some vanilla sweetness showing up on the finish. The burn and draw continued to be spot on as they were throughout the smoke. There was no bitterness as the Copacabana came to the end.

Overall Casa Fernandez has created a great medium body cigar with complexity and flavor for a great price point. The MSRP averages around $5.50 per stick, which is money well spent in my book. If your looking into trying some of Casa Fernandez's Aganorsa leaf, and enjoy more of a medium bodied cigar, then the Copacabana is a great place to start.
