Today’s cigar is the Gunslinger Cigars “Drifter” a 6 X54 Torpedo. This comes from an independent maker out of Kansas City, MO and rolled at the AJ Fernandez factory.
At first look the cigar was a real beauty, flawless and clean wrapper with enough oils to give it a nice shine on the Ecuadorian wrapper. The smell of the cigar pre light was a little earthy and had the hint of pecans or maybe almonds.
The first third of the cigar had a nice leathery flavor and maybe a hint of a oak taste. This cigar started out medium bodied but quickly shifted about half way through to a full bodied smoke with quite a bit of spice. As the full flavor crept up so did the hint of coffee and the smoke increased quite a bit.
This was a really good cigar, it could definitely be an everyday smoke and I think with a bit of age this could be one heavy smoke. I have a few resting and I will revisit them in a few months. I am going to give this a 7 Smoke Rings rating and I am sure I will be bumping it up in the near future.
