Cigar Review: Hooten Young Gothic Serpent Torpedo

Initial Thoughts:

When I first saw Hooten Young on Instagram, I thought to myself, “Wow! That's an awesome-looking cigar!” So, after doing some research, I found myself in possession of two Hooten Young Gothic Serpent cigars, one in a torpedo, and one in a toro.

As soon as I took this cigar out of the cellophane, I was hit with an absolutely wonderful smell. The aroma of the Hooten Young Gothic Serpent torpedo was incredible! The stick was leathery in color and the wrapper was visually perfect. A quick snip from my guillotine and we were off to the races! The burn on the cigar started pretty well, and the draw was smooth and easy.

Final Thoughts:

For a first production cigar from a brand new company, the Hooten Young Gothic Serpent Torpedo is an excellent cigar. The build quality was nearly perfect, the draw was never tight and was always consistent (which can be rare in torpedos), and the burn was practically perfect. The initial flavors which were slightly rough gave way to delicious notes of Nicaraguan tobacco. However, for a $15 cigar, I think the Gothic Serpent could benefit from some time aging in a humidor.

Watch out for Hooten Young – they're going to be a cigar brand to watch (and hopefully buy from) for years to come. Since I would have no problem recommending these cigars and smoking one with you, the Hooten Young Gothic Serpent Torpedo earns a CigarScore of 4.
