A solid budget stick from Oliva.From the original growers of the Ecuador Habana wrapper leaf and one of the largest tobacco growing families in the world comes Latitude Zero Tortas. A value-priced edition to the stellar Latitude Zero line, this new blend offers the same rich flavors and complexity without putting a dent in your wallet.

This new, highly-affordable handmade line from Latitude Zero is truly something special. Crafted with 100% Oliva Tobacco Company tobacco, this ‘Cuban Sandwich’ blend makes use of their broken leaves. Delicious, ultra-flavorful tobaccos which if intact, would have ended up in a top-dollar handmade from one of their many well-known customers ranging from Davidoff to Montecristo. Draped in Habano Ecuador wrappers and brimming with rich, Cuban-esque flavors, these handmades will save you plenty of cash without sacrificing one ounce of flavor.

  1. I just ordered a bundle of 15 for $19.99 through CI. I thought it was so cheap I might as well try! I have very little experience in the budget cigar arena. I know that these won't compare to my usual Oliva V Melanio but what the hell.

    You mentioned Quorom as your fav budget stick. Which version do you suggest, Connecticut, maduro or dark Ecuador sun-grown wrapper? The reviews of the Quorom are astoundingly positive so that will be my next experiment lol.

  2. Great review! This is the only review of the Tortas I can find so here's my own thoughts: Got a mazo of Toro sized Tortas, $13 for 15 (cigarbid) which seemed like an absolute steal. I had a box of the original Latitude Zero (Torpedoes) that I really enjoyed, so I decided to give these a shot. Punched my first one and the whole top 1/2" of the cigar split! I persevered and used the upper band to maintain the cigar's structural integrity. They might have been dry, as I didn't give them much time in the humidor. In general, the construction left a lot to be desired but the burn was surprisingly even and only required a single touch up. The first inch of the cigar was sweet, creamy and smooth, but for the remainder of the first third I mainly noted very mild hints of earthiness and cocoa. The second third was more of the same until about where the Tortas band would have been, when I started to get a little bitterness which I'm not a fan of. It was cold out so I only managed to do the first two thirds, but for less than a dollar a piece I was more than satisfied. Overall the flavors were pleasent and fairly mild, I'd say no more than mild to medium, as was the nicotine level.
