Reserva Selecta – Torpedo Barber
6 X 50 – Mild Bodied
Wrapper: Aged Connecticut Shade and Dominican Corojo
Filler: Dominican Republic
This beautiful cigar, a true work of art from master roller, an artisan, was the first PAYNE-MASON I smoked. This cigar also made me a huge fan of the torpedo shape, having preferred the robusto beforehand. The candy cane of a barber pole has been replaced by two wonderful wrappers resulting in a two-toned, double wrapped cigar. This is one of the most eye appealing cigars you will ever see; another one of PAYNE-MASON masterpieces that you almost don’t want to smoke.
And then you do.
I have introduced this cigar to hundreds of people and the response has been universal. This is one of the best cigars they have ever smoked.
That was my reaction when I smoked my first Torpedo Barber. One of the top five smokes of my life then and now. The complex combination of fillers results in a sweet, delicate and well-balanced smoking experience that is sophisticated enough for an aficionado and highly enjoyable for the new cigar smoker.
