Kifaro

Tasting Note: A good-looking, pointy torpedo with a faint draw that does not produce much smoke. It starts out sweet and leathery but takes on acidic flavors that carry onto the finish.

Score: 89
Dark and oily, this torpedo draws well. Sweet tobacco flavors carry hints of cherry and coca, but the finish is slightly chemical.

Score: 88
A dark, oily torpedo that smokes well. It’s charry, with sweet cedary notes and a nutty finish. Medium-bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Aug 24, 2004
Score: 88
A potent torpedo with a fine cap and a dark, shiny wrapper. The burn starts out unevenly, but straightens out. Flavors are creamy with notes of coffee and cocoa. There's light spice on the finish with a hint of vanilla.
