Top 5 Torpedo Cigars of 2021
Over time I’ve grown a certain fondness for all different types of cigars. One cigar that stands out above the rest, at least by the looks of it, is the Torpedo cigar. Torpedo cigars, also referred to as “pyramid cigars” may be a bit tough to cut and smoke at times, but that’s all apart of the allure of Torpedo cigars. The shape and construction of a Torpedo cigar provides a plethora of complex flavors that hit the palate differently than a Robusto or a box-pressed cigar.

Top 5 Torpedo Cigars of 2020
The torpedo shape is one of the most recognizable in the cigar industry. Its unique tapered edge has been showcased on thousands of different blends and remains one of the more iconic forms a cigar will take. For this list, we’ve decided to break down our Top 5 Favorite Torpedo Cigars.
Montecristo No. 2 Torpedo
The Montecristo No. 2 is the most popular and well-known of all the torpedo cigars. Dating back from the Cuban Montecristo brand, the No. 2 was the iconic size and shape of this legendary brand. This Dominican version, covered with a silky smooth Connecticut wrapper, is creamy mellow and flavorful, making it a natural choice for a true connoisseur.
Arturo Fuente Sun Grown Queen B
This might be one of the smaller torpedo’s on this list, but it sure does pack in the flavor. The Queen B from Arturo Fuente uses aged Dominican tobaccos for the filler and binder, followed by a stunning and oily Ecuadorian sun-grown wrapper. This distinctive outer leaf emits notes of spice, wood, cedar, and earth making this little number a flavor bomb.
Leaf by Oscar Maduro
The Leaf by Oscar line took everyone by surprise. What seemed like a gimmick turned into one of the most talked about cigars of the year due to its terrific construction and rich bold flavor. The Leaf by Oscar Maduro in the torpedo size is one of the most stunning perfecto cigars I’ve ever seen. It is visually flawless with smaller veins and an almost perfect taper to the end. Combined that with a top-notch blend and you have one of my favorite torpedo’s on the market.
Oliva Serie V Melanio
The Oliva Serie V is one of the best cigar lines ever created. The original V and the Melanio have been named a top 25 cigar of the year 9 times, which is nearly a record. The Melanio its in box-pressed glory does make for a beautiful torpedo. It feels good between the teeth and has a terrific burn rate. Notes of cedar and spice with a dash of sweet flow effortlessly from this iconic smoke.
Padron 1926 Series 40th Anniversary
It wouldn’t be a Top 5 list without a Padron. After testing a number of different Padron torpedo’s, I decided that the blend that worked best in this shape and size was the Family Reserve 40th. This award winning cigar is perfect in nearly every way, from its flavor, construction presentation and draw.
