Mad Monkey 6×46 Stallone Collaboration

$11.00

Do you remember the story of the mad monkey? It was straight out of a Halloween legend. If you do not know the story please search for mad monkey cigars on YouTube. It is one of our more theatrical videos and it certainly adds to the smoking experience. So the Mad Monkey himself was spotted about a year ago in Nicaragua. In between looting bodegas and bars, he stopped at Tabacalera Perla where he arm-wrestled Tony Barrios of Stallone Cigars. After Tony’s quick loss Tony agreed, under duress, to blend Mad Monkey a cigar using only the finest and fullest flavored Nicaraguan tobaccos. The monkey also stole some of the wrapper leaves from the adjacent factory owned by a man named Pepin. After several days of angst under the pressure and hostility of the monkey, Tony re-emerged from his blending lab with the cigar you now hold in your hand. By this point, the monkey was gone. Here we are almost a year later and the monkey never returned for his cigars. Where are you Mad Monkey? There have been sightings of the monkey from Costa Rica to San Antonio. Cigar Heists are happening more frequently.

Description

Tasting Notes: Dark chocolate, and dank earth off the body, and I get a sweet, somewhat musty cedar and natural tobacco off the foot. On the cold draw I get a very artificial cherry, cedar, damp earth, and black tea. After lighting up I get a very silky textured smoke, medium-full bodied, and really kicks some spice. Getting very rich notes of graham cracker, chocolate chips, sweet almonds, nougat, black pepper spice, marshmallow cream, and cedar. Yeah man! There is a bright citrus, dried cherry, caramel, white pepper and more cedar on the retrohale. I start getting a delicious toasted coconut aroma on the retrohale deeper in. Into the middle third I start getting a mix of chocolate-covered cherry, coconut, phantom flavor like a banana Laffy Taffy, coffee beans and cream, with red pepper spice and a toasty cedar on the finish.  In the final third, the flavors start to really go crazy.  It reminds me of a moist banana spice cake, sugar cane, creamy dark chocolate, maple cream cookies, chopped peanuts, faint caramel sweetness, and more of that awesome toasty cedar note. The retrohale stays consistent but does emphasize the citrus and white pepper a little more now. As the cigar draws to a close I notice a more nutty shift in the draw flavors, with peanut, hazelnut, chestnut, and almonds, with notes of earth, coffee beans and a dry woody cedar. BANGER!

Pairing Notes: Dark rums, spiced rum, Malibu coconut rum, hazelnut coffee hot or iced, or a coffee with cream and a shot of Frangelico, try with a Pina Colada if you are feeling festive, after banana bread or a banana spice cake with cream cheese frosting, with chocolate-covered almonds, after pancakes with maple syrup. Try eating a milky way bar about 15 minutes before.
