Initial Impressions – Ferio Tego Summa Torpedo

Appearance: 96

“This is a nice looking cigar. Dark brown with an oily sheen, it is fairly smooth with a couple of prominent veins showing. There is nothing that distracts from the look of the cigar. The filler is mostly a dark brown a shade or two darker than the wrapper. I noticed a few little gaps in the filler but nothing that should affect the burn.” – (ArmyRN)

Aroma: 93

“Neither the foot nor the wrapper give away much with regards to aroma however I am able to detect some subtleties of leather and graham cracker.” – (Noah)

First Third
– Blind Cigar Review

First Third

Flavor: 93
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium

“The first few draws reminded me of cavendish pipe tobacco. The notes are reminiscent of a cup light roasted coffee with the inhalation of campfire at the same time. The flavor notes have some depth to them but it is still a very light body for me. Farther into the first third there is not much progression to the flavor but there is a slight leafy note and a hint of leather mixed with the smokiness.” – (ArmyRN)

“Clipped the tip off and used my jet flame to light it since it was fairly windy out. Right out of the gate there were an abundance of dark leather, rich chocolate, toasted oak and a slight caramel sweetness. What an amazing first third.” – (maninblack77)

Second Third
– Blind Cigar Review

Second Third

Flavor: 95
Strength: Medium-Strong
Body/Complexity: Medium-Full

“Complexity steps up in big fashion entering the second third. What started out as a mild mix of muted natural flavors is certainly now more definable and complex. Cedar, nutmeg, baking spice, white pepper, salted caramel and hints of chocolate all crowd the palate in the most delightful of ways. White pepper and chocolate team up on the retro that is also becoming more robust, rounding out a near perfect balance. The finish seems to lengthen with every puff leaving a nice creamy mouthfeel and a distinct saltiness that lingers on the lips. Strength kicks up a few notches to a solid medium-plus as a pleasant nicotine buzz settles in.” – (Noah)

“Working my way into this second third the spice has become more pronounced. Jalapeño flavor covers my entire palate. This leave little room for anything else. The flavor in the retrohale has become more defined too. It is sweet cream with some artificial vanilla added. The two profiles are completely opposite of one another but work very well together. The mouthfeel has stayed heavy and oily with a really long finish.” – (TheRealBanzi)

Final Third
– Blind Cigar Review

Final Third

Flavor: 95
Strength: Medium-Strong
Body/Complexity: Medium-Full

“In the final third, everything remained fairly similar in relation to the second third. The leather and cedar dominated with a small amount of cocoa and baking spice in the background. The smoke remained very smooth all the way through each third, which is very enjoyable, the temperature also remained very cool as well.” – (Angel)

“Only a couple of very subtle changes occur between the second and final thirds. The same gambit of flavors continues to mingle on the palate but this smoke is becoming significantly more spicy especially on the lingering finish as I am noticing a tingle on my lips and the tip of my tongue. The sweeter notes of nutmeg, salted caramel and chocolate seem to drop back a bit. They're still very much present, just in a subdued kind of way leaving the cedar, baking spice and white pepper to out do one another in what has turned out to be one incredibly flavorful cigar. The retro further amplifies the spice of the smoke right up to the very end.” – (Noah)

Overall Impressions – Ferio Tego Summa Torpedo

Draw: 97

“A draw that sat just on the snug side of perfect contributed to a superb smoking experience and insane amount of smoke from the first puff to the last.” – (Noah)

Burn: 96

“Started off wavy and then became razor sharp.” – (maninblack77)

Construction: 95

“The construction was really good. There were no issues with cracks or lifting of the wrapper. The V-cut held nicely and didn't collapse or deteriorate as I progressed. The ash was phenomenal and had to be tapped, only twice during the entire smoking experience. Ash was a light gray with a dark gray interior.” – (ArmyRN)

Overall Strength: Medium-Strong
Overall Body/Complexity: Medium-Full
Experience Overall: 96

“Overall, this was an outstanding cigar. The Transitions from third to third were pleasant and interesting, starting with heavy cashew, fading into heavy leather and cedar all the while maintaining a background of cocoa and baking spice. This cigar maintained a very smooth and creamy smoke and stayed cool in temperature all the way through. I would definitely recommend this cigar to friends and family and look forward to putting it in my rotation.” – (Angel)

“This is one of the most enjoyable cigars I've had in recent days. The amount of flavors ranged from toasted oak, leather, rich chocolate, baking spices and I'm sure there were others I may have missed. Each third was more satisfying than the previous and each one was great. I can't wait to hear what this is so I can buy more. Highly recommended.” – (maninblack77)

“This was a good cigar. Not a great one for me as I prefer more complexity and transitions along the cigar thirds. It would be a great smoke if I was doing something and wanted to smoke as I did it. Sitting and simply concentrating on the flavors was a bit boring on this cigar, but overall it was constructed well, burned well and provided a few moments of good flavors.” – (ArmyRN)

“First and foremost the flavor profile maybe too intense for most smokers. With that being said, if you are a fan an intense, oily flavor profile this is the cigar for you. The construction, draw, burn put it on par with the best brands on the market. I could see myself reaching for one of these when I am looking to spice it up a little but it would fall short of making my rotation of cigars cause of the intense.” – (TheRealBanzi)

“In my opinion, this cigar more than checked off all the boxes that qualify it as a stellar smoke. From the first puff to the last the smoke was undeniably smooth and creamy, surely an indicator of well aged tobaccos. What began with mild strength and light-medium body blossomed into a powerhouse featuring medium-full strength and complexity. Even though the flavors throughout the first third seemed subdued, they were pleasant and balanced none the less. It was the final two thirds where this smoke shined the most and truly knocked my socks off. Not only did a gambit of balanced flavors come out of the woodwork to delight my palate but they did so with such intensity that I had to wonder if I was still smoking the same cigar. A trouble free burn, near perfect draw and solid buzz all rounded out a delightful smoking experience that I will gladly have again anytime.” – (Noah)
