    My Review of the Zino Classic Torpedo

    The Zino Classic Torpedo is a short little belicoso, the first new size since the Classic line was reblended by Henke Kelner a few years ago. I picked this up at Empire Cigars.

    This is a nice looking light brown colored cigar with barely visible veins and is firm but with an appropriate amount of give. The wrapper is very thin and soft and silky to the touch.

    This was a big surprise as this cigar was a disappointment first puff. I was hit with wave after wave of ammonia, which has a halting sour that makes you want to throw it down.

    This is a real shame as I had liked the Classic Line as it was a consistent cigar that had a creamy toastiness and oakiness with a hint of coffee that was mild in strength but very flavorful.

    This is not ready ammonia at all. The ammonia tang won’t leave your tongue and you just can’t get rid of the taste. I pitched it. This might be the first time Henke has let me down.
