(2 customer reviews)

$11.00

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Binder: Dominican
Fillers: Nicaraguan with a touch of Peru

Kings County New York. Otherwise known as Brooklyn. Home to Biggie Smalls. Ex Bad Boy record execs wanted to pay homage to the late, great, Christopher Wallace by honoring him with his own cigar. And what better way to do it than to don it with the most classic medallion of all time, the Jesus Piece. This has to be one of the nicest cigar bands I have ever seen. What’s more is that the cigar may be the best 60 ring gauge I have ever smoked. For now, they want to leave the factory a mystery. I personally would like to know, because whoever made this cigar is a legend in my mind. I do know the cigar has both Nicaraguan and Dominican as well as an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. People argue if BIG was the best rapper. That is irrelevant here. The question now becomes, is this the best 60 ring gauge ever? I’ll let you decide. This cigar is a testament to my work in procuring the best and most unique smoking experiences available. Enjoy.

Description

Tasting Notes: On the body I’m getting saddle leather, barn, cocoa, something like the opening of a barnyard door. On the foot, chocolate-scented oil!! The cold draw is sesame seed, chocolate, wood, walnut, cocoa powder, and black pepper spice on the lips. As I Light, the scent reminds me of roasting a marshmallow fireside. On the first third, I’m picking up on sesame, cocoa, walnut wood, earth, and white pepper on retrohale. Now sweet chocolate, wood, and leather. The retrohale also has baking cocoa powder. A certain nut butter creaminess. Dried tart fruits like dried mango, dark berry, like blackberry or black cherry. Black cherry syrup. Bitter wood on the finish in a good way. A dry sesame seed oil comes in and out. Candied citrus. Little rectangle sesame seed candies…honey…charcoal…like charred wood. Toasted almond! Tanned leather! Candied dried fruits. Without retrohaling, it’s sweet, dark, woody, tangy. There’s a bitterness but it’s the sesame again. About an inch in, florals start to introduce themselves. Raspberry syrup. Leather all day! Smoke texture like olive oil…Olive oil! Amazing. Bright and fruity with a slightly bitter finish. Orange! The second third is a lighter wood, like cedar. Freeze-dried raspberry. Sesame seed oil. Olive oil. Flowers. Dark chocolate. Rosemary. Animal fat? Animal flesh? Pork? Or chocolate and wood… an almond phantom flavor on the retrohale. Charred wood. Sweetness. Charred oak. Fruit syrups. Cocoa. Started super dynamic, and then settled into a nice flavor profile. The final third is ginger, florals, woods, candied ginger, oak, charred oak, delicate white florals.

Pairing Notes: Cognac. Craggenmore or a Speyside scotch. Toasted Walnuts. Black cherry soda an hour before smoking. Dried fruits. Dark chocolate. Dark roast coffee with sugar or cafecito/espresso with sugar. Lager. Root beer. S’mores. Marshmallow. Sesame seed candy an hour before. After Chinese food.

    As mentioned, this 60 is the best I have ever had. I believe that great blends deserve the correct vitola. I find most 60s to be poorly blended and really gimmicky. This 60 is what all other 60s wish they were. The B.I.G. connection is a great story, but this cigar needs no help.

    Damn, this is a very good cigar…..Not a big fan of 60 ring gauges anymore, however this is a must-try. I get fruity notes, coffee, leather, light pepper….
