This one has been a long time coming and has been on our list for awhile. Originally created for a shop release, which never happened, this cigar finally made its debut at the IPCPR show in 2014 as a limited edition release.
Can you say construction perfection? It looks to good it almost looks fake. Perfectly symmetrical it actually tricks your eyes into thinking it's not real, but I promise you it is. They just did that good of a job creating this masterpiece.
Both samples smoked had some issues burning as intended, from a tight draw, multiple abrupt outages that caused us to make a few relight attempts. Goes to show you that beauty on the outside doesn’t always mean beauty on the inside.
The cigar undoubtedly has a great balance to it. From the start you get a pleasant creaminess which plays a lead role through the entire cigar, but the enhancements that surround the main component i think are equally as important in making this cigar truly great. Subtle christmas spice towards the middle of the cigar, a nuttiness and butteriness throughout made this cigar not only unique, but one that was extremely palatable.
This cigar commands a high price. It will be tough to buy one under the intended $14.00 price point, which is slightly inflated for this cigar, but if you love that smooth creaminess, we would recommend getting your hands on one to try it.
