Clear some space off on your top humidor shelf…because this baby is taking the #1 spot!
Now…you know I wouldn’t just go running my mouth off like that if I didn’t have the goods to back it up!
DARK SIDE OF THE FORCE is an absolute masterpiece! It features an Ultra-Chocolately San Andres wrapper is “specially fermented” with a years long proprietary process that brings out it’s oils and fragrance. (Seriously, you can smell the age in the leaf!)
Plus…DARK SIDE OF THE FORCE is LOADED with the absolute BEST rare ligero tobaccos that we’ve ever found! (This stuff is literally prized beyond any other tobacco on Planet Earth)
But don’t just take our word for it….The richness and flavor complexity absolutely astounded our “esteemed” tasting panel! (Who happen to have some of the best palates in the cigar industry!) They couldn’t believe the amazing flavors and ultra-rich body. It’s utterly delicious!
DARK SIDE OF THE FORCE is a full-bodied, full-strength 6×48 toro. The wrapper is an oily 10-year-aged San Andres maduro leaf. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret. But…all tobacco is aged between 7-13 years!
First light is a huge blast of flavor! Dark chocolate, espresso beans, brown sugar, red pepper, raw leather, and almond rush over the palate. Raw cane sugar, and marshmallow follow. The retrohale is strong adding a warm cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, whipping cream and toffee appear. Cinnamon stick and black pepper emerge along with red oak wood and nutmeg.
Halfway, the richness and body grows even more. Waves of caramel and Tootsie Roll emerge. Bourbon whiskey, macadamia nuts, coffee beans, and hint of sweet cloves join the mix. The complexity is almost too much to describe!
Last third, things turn even darker! Huge blasts of dark chocolate, spiced rum, buttercream, and cedar wood are added to the mix. Chocolate frosting, molasses, and toasted nuts. The cigar stays perfectly cool and the burn is a razor’s edge all the way to the nub!
This is Ezra at it’s absolute best!
DARK SIDE OF THE FORCE is a cigar for the true boutique cigar aficionado! The richness, strength, and body are not for the novice smoker. (This is a seriously sophisticated and deeply rich smoke.)
