REVIEW NOTES

Pre-Light Observations The Bellaterra Double Deuce Torpedo is an attractive looking cigar sporting a rustic brown wrapper with a waxy finish. It has some fairly large veins and some minor lumpiness, but the cigar looks well put together and feels well constructed throughout. The pre-light aroma and taste of the cigar is mainly alfalfa with a bit of liquorice. I will note here that the draw was a little tight on both samples that I have smoked, but nothing that detracted from the overall smoking experience. I was able to loosen them up a little by massaging the barrel of the cigar, but that can be a bit of a dangerous operation to perform as it risks cracking the cigar or possibly exacerbating the draw issues further. Tasting Notes The Double Deuce fits what I consider to be the normal Nicaraguan cigar flavor profile, but it is done really well. The flavors begin with a creamy vanilla flavor paired with a rich spiciness that finishes with a pleasant coffee after taste. Every now and then a sour dough flavor is blended in. The sweetness tailed off in the second half leaving a spicy Nicaraguan tobacco flavor. Despite the afore-mentioned tight draw, the cigars produced a large volume of smoke. One final note is that these cigars do have a bit of a nicotine kick to them, but nothing too strong. Conclusions The Bellaterra Double Deuce was a surprisingly good smoke. It is certainly a quality premium cigar, and while not priced as an every-day smoke, it is a cigar that you could consider adding to your regular rotation. I definitely would recommend anyone to try these out, and you can find more information (and a sampler pack) at the official web site at BellaTerraRanch.com.
