Ezra Zion – Cleaver

Ezra Zion - Cleaver

CLEAVER Special Edition Ltd. is a full-bodied, full-strength box-pressed toro. The wrapper is a gorgeous Corojo 99 leaf (just look at that pic!). Fillers are medio tiempo ligeros from Nicaragua…and some secret places…all aged between 9-12 years!

First light is a huge wave of flavor! Milk chocolate, tanned leather and sweet tea rush across the palate. Immediately following are espresso bean and clove. The finish adds notes of red oak wood and vanilla. The retrohale is warming with a cinnamon burn.

As it progresses, big blasts of caramel and black peppercorn emerge. Buttercream appears on the finish along with hints of all-spice and nutmeg.

Halfway, the aged of the tobacco begins to shine through! Custard, white chocolate, and almond begin to dominate. Hints of whiskey barrel, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes. The flavors layer on top of each other so perfectly–that you’ll be smacking your lips after every puff!

The last third, things get intense! Huge notes of dark chocolate, dark stout beer, and jalapeño emerge. The brown sugar sweetness grows. The finish is long adding cashew, red oak wood, and licorice. The burn is perfect and cigar stays cool all the way to the nub of the nub! 

CLEAVER Special Edition Ltd. is an absolutely phenomenal cigar! Period. I’m not even gonna beat around the bush. The precision balance and complexity of flavors are almost indescribable!

2020 Alec Bradley Shamrock

The 2020 Alec Bradley Shamrock is available now in singles and boxes of 10!

2020 Alec Bradley Shamrock

Purchase them online for $112.50 by Clicking Here! After April 30th, prices go back to $125!

The Shamrock is a gorgeously-wrapped 6 x 50 barberpole with three different wrappers:

  • Honduran Candela
  • Habano Maduro
  • Habano Seco

The filler remains an international mystery….

This cigar is both decadent and rich, with a subtle complexity derived from its triple-wrapped construction. The candela wrapper adds buttery-smooth notes of earth, while the Habano Maduro and Habano Seco add body and intensity into the mix.

After smoking this year’s release, we can definitely suggest grabbing a box before we sell-out! After that, you’ll have to wait until next March!

If you’re free, join us March 17th for a Longest Ash Contest, featuring the Shamrock’s sister-cigar: the Filthy Hooligan! While you’re there, don’t miss your opportunity to try the 2020 Alec Bradley Shamrock–they won’t last long!
