It’s been 4 long years since the last AXx release!
In fact, it’s such a unicorn that you might not have even seen it before!
Let me just tell you right away that AXx DEMON SLAYER is NOT for the faint of heart!
AXx DEMON SLAYER is a crazed, riotous, and downright diabolical cigar. That’s why we love it!
This is our favorite kind of cigar….where we go off the reservation and into the “Way-outta-sphere”…Pairing different combinations of tobaccos together that have never been tried before!
But…you know us. We always gotta keep pushing the boundaries of what’s possible…and make each cigar better than the one before it!
So…after years of painstaking work…we’re finally ready to release the next generation of AXx! It’s got…More RICHNESS! More FLAVOR! More COMPLEXITY!
AXx DEMON SLAYER features some of the richest and most decadent tobaccos from the EZHQ aging vault! We had to reach deep into our tobacco arsenal. This stuff has been aging and aging at the perfect humidity and temp for years! (And, yes, before you email us…it does have tons of Medio Tiempo ligero!)
AXx DEMON SLAYER is a full-bodied, med/full-strength box-pressed 6×52 prensado toro. The wrapper is an 8-year-aged San Andres Claro leaf. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret….but they are all 6-11 years aged.
The first light is a tidal wave of complex flavors! Milk chocolate, white peppercorn, and caramel blast across the palate. Red oak, cashews, raw leather, and port wine immediately followed. Hints of clove, Irish cream, and butter linger long on the finish. The retrohale adds a warming cinnamon burn.
(I’m actually getting “sensory overload” from this cigar. Absolutely magnificent…just from the first half-inch!)
As it progresses, the blend grows even more sophisticated. Dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee bean, and cashew emerge. Hints of a whiskey barrel and cayenne pepper.
Halfway, the complexity continues to build. Cocoa, whipped cream, red pepper, and walnut appear. Blasts of nougat, earth, and malt on the finish. Amazing!
Last third, everything intensifies! Bold notes of maple wood, cake frosting, brown sugar, and dark beer. Vanilla bean and all-spice. The burn is perfect and the cigar stays cool all the way to the lip-burning nub!
AXx DEMON SLAYER is a complete phenom! I can’t even bring myself to pair this cigar with anything because I don’t want to interrupt the symphony of flavors from the tobaccos.
