Designed for the cigar so-called Torpedo shape, also referred to as a Pyramid cigar, which merges complex flavors directly on the palate with a sharply tapered head. Torpedo cigars tend to burn more slowly as a result of the tighter draw they produce, which will fluctuate depending on how deeply the cigar is cut.
