Matt Sieminski of Atlantic Cigar noted:

“Atlantic Cigar is honored to be the exclusive online retailer for the Viva La Vida by Artesano del Tobacco in the Torpedo vitola. We have had a long relationship with Billy and Gus Fakih. From the beginning of their launch of Viva La Vida cigars, to their next release of El Pulpo cigars.

We have enough trust in the brothers that we even had a private release of Viva La Vida 6×56 Box-Press commissioned. Not only does the tobacco stand for itself, but the blend is something that cannot be replicated. There is something about a Torpedo size that you cannot get from other cigar sizes. The way the smoke hits your pallet, just plain works. As we look forward to being the sole proprietor of the Viva La Vida Torpedo.”

The Viva La Vida torpedo is a medium-to-full bodied cigar measuring 6½ inches with a ring gauge of 54. This Nicaraguan puro uses a Habano Oscuro 2000 wrapper, Corojo 1999 binder and Criollo 1998 filler. The wrapper has a slightly toothy sheen. Seeping with oil, its near-black torpedo tastes of caramel, toffee and sweet jam with dark roasted espresso cafe finish. The Viva La Vida project is a collaboration between cigar master A.J. Fernandez and Artesano Del Tobacco, All of the cigar’s tobacco are grown in Nicaragua by AJ. Fernandez.
