Rojas Bluebonnets PCC Exclusive Aged 2 Years

$12.00

6 1/2×42

Two years and two months ago, Noel Rojas came to my house to deliver 10,000 KSG Red and 10,000 Blue Bonnets both in the same Lonsdale vitola. They were both an exclusive size to the Privada Cigar Club. I see that Noel recently released the Red in the exclusive size, but it’s been 2 years and I cannot get mad. The KSG Red cigar has gone on to receive a rating of 92, and will most likely be in a Top 25 list. I also noticed a cigar of the month club that always trash talked us put it in their monthly box. My, how time changes things! I still have the original batch in stock on the site, feel free to pick some up. Noel has been asking me when I’m going to release the Blue for the last two years on a monthly basis. I kept putting it off but because it is nice to have cigars that we age ourselves. We are the leader in post-production aging of cigars and after questioning the true age of cigars from certain manufacturers, we do it ourselves! Just another bonus to being a PCC member.

During the visit Noel also filmed a rather famous video with us where we rolled cigars and shared tobacco blends. The video has been viewed by quite a lot of people on Youtube and highly recommend you check it out. Noel is a rising star in our industry and has made quite a few popular cigars in the last few years. So here it is, a chance to smoke a professionally, 2 year aged, Nicaraguan Corojo Cigar with an Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper on it. It may not sound like a long time, but 2 years, in this ring gauge, aged the way we do it with boveda in coolers, is rare. Let’s see how it has developed. We should be able to keep enough of these on the site for you to check in on them every year or so.

Description

Body: Natural habano tobacco.
Foot: Faint tobacco and chocolate.
Cold Draw: Caramel, milk chocolate, and nougat, sort of like Twix plus salt and a slight red pepper.

Tasting Notes: The first third is toasted sesame seed, oak, cream, and golden habano tobacco which I will relate to golden cereal grain, like a Honeycomb. There are Italian dried herbs and a slight twang of a dried peach on the finish. The smoke is creamy and the retrohale is black pepper, dried currant, and oak.

In the second third, the oak is front and center, behind it is a semi-sweet apricot jam along with white pepper on the palate, white toast, and those Italian herbs. The smoke texture is creamy, but also leaves a nice minerality in the mouth. The finish is oak and black pepper. The retro is where it becomes dynamic. I get a blast of strong white pepper, but a fruit note I would describe as blackberry. The age is showing maturity by way of smoothness and balance. At the end of the second third, the body flavors catch up with the retro and it becomes much fruitier. I wonder if that fruitiness would have been closer to the first third had we not aged it?

The final third brings raspberry, butterscotch, white pepper, wheat toast, apricot zing on the finish, lemon candy flavor, almost lemons with black tea and honey, the smoke is still creamy. The retro is more white pepper now, and powdery. The finish is lemon zinger black pepper and oak.

Pairing Notes: Highlands scotch, peach tea, Spanish red wines, cream soda, blackberries an hour prior, special k, coffee cake, coffee ice cream, light roast coffee.
