The Fast Eddie 2019 Limited Edition Made By Blackbird Cigar Co.
Well folks, some of you that know me personally know I have a fondness for the CAO 450 Spark plug. It’s a little smoke that really seems to satisfy me when nothing else does. I tried to work with CAO but its a huge corporation at this point with no real person to connect with, so I set out to make something similar, but better. That’s how we came to the Fast Eddie. Named after Paul Newman’s character in “The Color of Money”, Eddie was a pool shark and tournament champion. He had a quality about him that I cannot quite put into words. He was good, he was bad and in the end he got it right. Sort of the underdog. That’s how I look at this cigar for some reason. It’s on the smaller side, comes with a printed ribbon instead of a band which I actually like. Has a pig tail foot which you almost never see and a great soft box press. The wrapper is Mexican San Andres, the binder is Indonesian Sumatra and the fillers are both Dominican and Nicaraguan. Its a 4 3/4×50. The pig tail foot and ribbon look beautiful. BlackBird Cigar is a cult cigar. Enjoy them while they last.
