The El Baton brand is produced by J.C. Newman, being one of the company's original historic brands. Re-released in 2010, El Baton cigars are available in three different sizes; Robusto 5 x 54, Double Toro 6 x 60, and Double Torpedo 6 ¾ x 54. Each size comes packaged in cabinets of 40 or can be bought individually at your local brick and mortar stores. This week's review will be on the double torpedo and I’ve only heard/read great things about this cigar.

Background Info

This cigar was reintroduced to the J.C. Newman (makers of Diamond Crown) family of cigars in 2009. One factory in Nicaragua makes this cigar, and nothing else.

Mission Debrief

This cigar will always hold a special place with me as this was the cigar I was smoking when I found out that my wife had started having labor contractions. When my wife told me that the process started, I returned to the basement and hastily finished the cigar. Needless to say, I was glad that I bought two of these cigars, if only to give this cigar its full due.
