Smoking characteristics of various shapes

Fellow Apes, smoking a Cacique torpedo in the wee hours of the morning. Good cigar. Brought to mind a conversation I had with my local tobacconist. I commented that I had enjoyed the torpedo or pyramid shape in any number of cigars that I had smoked. They always seemed to draw and smoke better than conventional shapes. He pointed out to me that there was a good reason for this. The figurados are harder to roll correctly and therefore are relugated to the most experienced torcedores.This is probably commen knowledge to you experienced Apes but was a bit of a revelation to of those things where you say oh yeah, makes sense now.

:u Makes sense to me, Frank.

I just got a box of Pirates Gold Pyramids that look simply delicious...can't wait to test the theory.

I have read where they put the best rollers on the difficult shapes also. It makes sense.
I have always found that when smoking a pyramid you can cut off just a little more if the draw is too tight. They don't unwrap like the other size/styles.
