Jenneff Maduro Torpedo - First Impression

This is not a full review. It is a medium+ review. Typically, my complete write-up reviews are full+, however. So it might very well be fair to refer to this review as -full. Dependant upon, of course, how it hits yer palate.

The long and short if it all is that a full+ review will be written in short+ order. Herein, however, is simply my First Impression, of this Jenneff Maduro Torpedo. Hence the title: Jenneff Maduro Torpedo - First Impression. I think we're all on the same page now, gentlepersons. As a professor once said, 
"It is my job to cover the curriculum. It is not my concern if I cover you with it."
