After smoking the Pasha, I was eager to see what the El Diario brings to the table. The favours are not as complex as the Pasha but provides the smoker an easy to enjoy a very uniform experience, without many changes in flavour. The flavours that are present in the El Diario Torpedo are pronounced enough to keep even a seasoned aficionado pleased. While I prefer the Pasha to the El Diario Torpedo . The price alone would lead me to purchase a box without thinking twice.
