1502 Black Gold Toro Cigar Review
This 6x50 box-pressed stick has a dark brown wrapper that almost looks black. It features tight invisible seams, a triple cap, a firm pack, minimal veins, and an oily, very toothy feel. The first light shows a perfect draw and medium-bodied flavors. The third brings in more flavor and keeps the tobacco the main runner. The tobacco is very fast and delivers a straight burn. At 30 minutes, the burn slows down to mild-medium. The same profile is found in the smoke output, which is quite impressive at this point. The last third of the smoke is a solid medium-bodied finish that brings up the tobacco quite a lot through the long finish. 1502 Cigars, thank you for this review.

1502 Emerald Torpedo Cigar Review
This box-pressed stick measures 6.5x52 inches. It has a dark-tan wrapper that is firmly packed. There are a few small veins, tight visible seams, and a dry, rough toothy feel. The cigar also smells rich with peppery wood aroma. The perfect draw is evident at first light. It produces a rich, full-bodied smoke with plenty of flavors. The third drop the ash in half-inch chunks. This keeps the full flavor combo going. The ash produces a rich, light earthy flavor with some cream and pepper. It leaves a slight zing on the tongue. The 1/2-way point is still very good after 45 minutes of construction. However, the flavors begin to change to a medium-full flavor. They shift to a richer earthiness and big pepper flavor with no spice or zest. While the finish is long and rich, the ash remains very short and fluffy. The last third of the draw ends at 1:20. It adds a little creme to the draw and helps to soothe the peppery finish. The construction is excellent and the band has a medium amount of strength. Thank you 1502 for this sample!
The 6.5x52 box-pressed stick has a dark brown mottled wrapper. It features small veins, a tight invisible seam, a soft satin feeling, and a faint musty hay smell. The first light shows a great draw, with medium-bodied smoke that has the flavors of straight tobacco and grassy hay. It also has a smooth finish. The third section quickly changes to a leathery core with a slight sweetness and black pepper flavor. This continues through the long, thick finish that has quite a lot of texture. At the 30 minute mark, the ash had dropped in a solid chunk. The burn was near perfect and the flavors were still abundant. As the leather begins to fade to a soft, plain earthy background, the core flavors shift to dried cherries, sweet cream, and a building pepper on the end. The last third of the process takes just over an hour and is characterized by a bright cherry with a minty-nut zing, especially at the warm end.
