I was actually turned on to the Kristoff GC (“Glenn Case”) Signature Torpedo by a regular...
Needless to say, there is a lot going on with this cigar.
Like most Kristoff models, the GC’s oily maduro wrapper is dark and veiny, while its closed foot and “pigtail” head give it a rustic “unprocessed” appearance. The wrapper’s pre-light aroma is both distinctive and nuanced; sweet and spicy, coupled with hints of earth and moss. Truly unlike any other cigar I’ve experienced.
The GC’s flavor profile remained fairly consistent throughout the final two thirds of the smoke, although perhaps slightly favoring the cigar’s espresso notes by the middle of the second third.
Kristoff’s process of double fermentation really paid off. The GC was literally one of the smoothest cigars I have ever tasted. Smoking it down to the nub produced only a slight increase in bitterness, while the aftertaste was so mild that I felt little need to cleanse my palate when I was finished. Retrohaling the GC heightened its sweeter notes, while surprisingly resulting in almost no irritation to my nose or sinuses. That’s how amazingly smooth this cigar was.
I don’t often use the word “ethereal” to describe a cigar, but I’ll readily use it to describe the GC Signature Series. Its complex flavor profile, solid construction, and unparalleled smoothness make the GC a perfect cigar both for seasoned smokers, and those just getting into a fuller-bodied taste. Davidus stores are stocked with multiple vitolas of the GC Signature Series, as well as the Kristoff Criollo, Sumatra, Ligero, Ligero Maduro, and the award-winning Corojo Limitada.
