The Cannoli PCC By Amendola Cigars

(4 customer reviews)

$10.00

Tasting Notes: Leather and chocolate on the body along with a faint fruit note. The foot has a note of chocolate syrup. Chocolate and leather on cold draw along with these artificial fruit flavoring notes, like fake strawberry. Once lit the cigar opens up with bitter dark chocolate covered strawberries and charred wood. There’s dark black espresso and a very interesting spice that reminds me of strong peppermint. There are roots in this as well. I would say more sarsaparilla and anise but there is also this tamarind flavor along with espresso. Powerful red pepper, chocolates, espresso, fruits, leather, and wood. What could be better? The 2nd third shows more of the root notes with sweeter chocolate and charred woods. Some cola notes and the leather still remains. Further in I am reminded of chocolate-covered peppermint bark and red pepper. In the final third, I am still reminded of chocolate covered peppermint and Sambuca with lighter roast coffee and cream now. The end is calming down slightly with roots, woods, chocolate and black pepper on the finish. This is a closeout-the-night kind of stick.
Pairing Notes: Holiday fruit cakes. French toast. Maple syrup. Chocolates and fruits. porter or stout beer. High proof whiskey. Jack Daniels neat. after chocolate, anything. cannoli 🙂 Medium to dark roast coffee. Anything Christmas- like or flavored.

Description

There are a lot of guys trying to be in the cigar game. I’m always looking for a rich heritage. I get approached by a lot of business guys that say they have their own brand, and to be honest, I discredit most Americans trying to start their own company. You really gotta prove it to me that there’s a real story to your brand and you’re not just some guy that went on a cruise to the Dominican Republic and thinks you met a cigar master blender and can start your own brand. So at first when two Italian ex-New York guys approached me, I didn’t pay much attention. Then I found out that they roll their own cigars. Ok, now I’m interested. But then I kept hearing about this cigar called the Cannoli. I don’t know if you’ve ever had a Cannoli, but it’s one of the best desserts in the world, and one day, you’ll need to go down to little Italy in NYC and have one. Either way, if I have two Italian guys that sound like mob guys who got trained to roll cigars and have the passion to travel to Nicaragua and blend their own, then I’m all ears. Respect. Now, getting the Cannoli was not easy. It also comes to you like a red velvet cupcake that’s been sitting in a paper bag with the oil staining the bag. Wet and gooey. So you have to let them sit. I aged these cigars for another 4 months on top of their 4 months and I’m still going to tell you that when you are ready to smoke this cigar, cut the end, and leave it out 24-48 hours in low humidity. But even if you smoke it right out of the bag, it’s ready. And boy oh boy what a treat it is. The Cannoli is a confection of a cigar. A dream of chocolates and sugars and coffees. It’s a post-meal culinary climax if I may say so, and if you like dessert Maduro you’re gonna love this. So let Amendola get an “Ayyy” on social media when you smoke this.

    This cigar is scrumptious. Rich with sweet chocolate flavors. My first Amendola cigar and they have quickly made my short list of producers to try.

    I had this cigar with a double shot of cappuccino with no breakfast and it was fantastic.

    This cigar had a wonderful natural sweetness to it that turned creamy as i smoked. I got very little pepper if any and only on a retrohale. This cigar stays creamy throughout with some coffee, chocolate, and even mint note about halfway through that reminds me of those York Patties we all love. The mint fades away and again are left with only sweet delicious cream, chocolate, and a little spice. I am so glad I ordered more and that I was introduced to the Amendola brand. I’ve stalked up on some more and sent one to my father to try. Privada has been a hitter with every cigar I’ve tried. “We don’t smoke the bad stuff and neither should you.” Brian Desind from Privada Cigar Club.

    I’ve made multiple orders and have always been impressed with the shipping, the care, the quality, and the respect these wonderful smokable pieces of art deserve.

    Creamy, chocolate, slight spice, phantom mint tingle.

    Fantastic cigar.
