Xhaxhi Bobi Grinchy Aged 3+ Years

(1 customer review)


Wrapper: Mexican San Andres
Binder: Pennsylvania
Fillers: Dominican and Nicaraguan

Back at it again! Some of you were lucky enough to smoke the Xhaxhi Bobi Halloween themed cigar that he made for the LCA in October. For those of you who were not, you are welcome! The cigar was a hit. What we did not mention in the release is that we made another batch of very similar cigars for the holiday season. There really is not much difference between the two except that the LCA release had more Dominican filler and this has more Nicaraguan filler. If you missed it, Xhaxhi Bobi is a Dutch cigar box maker who is a rockstar among the Dominican cigar makers. On any given day, you will find Bobi traveling between factories with a bottle in one hand and a box of cigars in the other. He is a wild guy who likes to prank and scare people. I cannot tell you how often I am on FaceTime with a cigar maker and Bobi jumps into the screen. Overall Bobi brings cheer to the people he works with, and this cigar should bring cheer to you as well!


Tasting Notes: The body sees a faint aroma of smoked chili powder and barnyard. The foot gives off something that reminds me of gingerbread and raisins. The cold draw also sees signs of gingerbread along with dried fruits. The first third is pine nuts, baker’s spices, molasses and you guessed it, gingerbread. The retro gives me a bright, sweet, blend of allspice, orange, citrus, and almonds. The smoke texture feels rather syrupy in the mouth and leaves a spicy tingle on the finish. The second third sees some butterscotch, oak, apples, and cinnamon. I also get a phantom flavor of ginger ale on the retrohale. Sweet and effervescent with a light lemon and lime citrus zing. Caramel, candied orange, and subtle raspberry notes appear. In the final third is dry butter pecan, brown sugar, or faint maple syrup and a musty charred oak. In the very nub, I get sweetness, florals, and an orange zest. WOW. BANGER!

Pairing Notes: Orange chicken. Have a ginger ale earlier that day. Ginger and Rye. After gingerbread. VSOP or XO Cognac. Dark aged rum. Candied orange candies or Grand Marnier. Pork fried rice. Christmas cake.

    The body has a smoked floral paprika aroma.
    The foot gives of dark chocolate.
    The cold draw is raisins.
    The tasting notes included baking spices, molasses, chocolate, and a bright almost minty floral flavor.
    Bottom line mint chocolate chip and very nub worthy.
    There is a smooth rich smoke texture.
    I get a sweetness off the wrapper that made me like my lips the whole time I was smoking it.
