Q & A: Cutting Torpedos?

Q.
How should I approach cutting torpedos?

11/06/11 | by BC of Chicago, IL

A.
Torpedos can be a little tricky when making a cut. First, you should always use a guillotine cutter. Any other cutters will only mangle the head of the cigar and leave you smokeless. Now, while using the guillotine cutter on a torpedo, remember to cut above the cap of the cigar; the cap being the very top of the cigar that holds everything together. If you cut below this point, the cigar will unravel as it burns and you won’t get very far. Once you’re ready to cut, remember that where you cut is completely up to you (as long as you stay above the cap). That’s the beauty of a torpedo. You can cut a wide opening or a small opening depending on your preference. Also, you can cut the head on an angle so that you ensure the smoke will be aimed towards your tongue or the roof of your mouth, depending on your preferences. By doing this, you’ll notice that you’ll pick up different flavors on different parts of your palate. That is the beauty of enjoying torpedos; depending on the cut, you can get a variety of different flavors.
