KNIFE FIGHT ‘22 Special Edition is a full-bodied, medium-strength 6×50 toro wrapped in a gorgeous 11-year-aged Criollo 98 leaf. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain secret…but all tobaccos are between 9-14 years aged!
First light is awe-inspiring! Huge waves of milk chocolate and aged leather instantly wash over the palate. Immediately following, rich flavors of caramel, heavy cream, and roasted coffee beans appear. The finish is long adding vanilla bean and dark brown sugar. Retrohale is adds a warming cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, cocoa and leather come to the fore. Hints of black walnut and red oak. The finish continues to impress–very clean with hints of clove and spice.
Halfway, maple wood, white pepper, and Scotch whiskey emerge. The finish brings waves of black licorice, toasted marshmallow, and sweet tea. The age of tobacco really starts to be tasted. It’s a mature, refined flavor that only comes from extra aging. So delicious that it’s hard to describe!
The last third everything crescendos! Creamy espresso, dark leather, and cinnamon stick become pronounced. Balanced perfectly by flavors of toffee, pie crush, and cashew. It’s absolutely unbelievable down to the nub!
