My Blue Heaven
Tasting Notes: On the body, sweet barnyard and slight sour cheese. On the foot, Fritos/corn chips. The cold draw is black tea and pretzel. Once lit I am hit with a burned pretzel note, black pepper, espresso, leather, light floral notes, and an earthiness. A bit further in I get more of the dark pretzel, black pepper, sweet cinnamon and woods, a nutmeg note, espresso richness, a mushroom like earthiness as well as floras and leather as undertones throughout. The cigar reminds me of really fancy French toast with maple syrup and vanilla. The smoke is powdery and the retro is minerally. The 2nd third shifts a bit. I get heavy woods and espresso, browned butter, a maple syrup like sweetness, breads, cinnamon, raspberry fruit like notes and each puff changes from a slight cocoa to a slight vanilla which reminds me of a soft serve ice cream swirl. In the final third we see pine nuts and pine wood notes, a lime like citrus, charcoal notes, fresh fruit notes, heavy cola, vanilla, pepper, woods and peanut butter. Well my friends, at just under $10 per stick in our shop, this is a heck of a smoke you can enjoy more than once per week. I’m so happy we finally have our house blend.
