“Bacon makes everything better!” …No truer words have ever been spoken!
It’s taken us over a year to release another Makin’ Bacon blend. The reason is simple…it had to be better than all it’s predecessors!
We know that the various projects we’ve done–Brass Knuckles, The Raven, Makin’ Bacon, Blessed Leaf, Army Men, etc.–have become institutions in their own right.
That sets the bar even higher than usual. Every single release has to not only be a home run...it has to be a GRAND SLAM!
Well, we did it! Ladies and Gentlemen..the MAKIN’ BACON BLACK MAPLE!
MAKIN’ BACON BLACK MAPLE is a full-bodied, full-strength 6×48 toro with a pigtail cap. Wrapper is a 7-year-aged Sumatra rosado leaf. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret. All tobaccos are 7-11 years aged!
First light is a huge blast of caramel and red pepper. Leather, milk chocolate, and nougat follow close behind. The finish lingers long on the palate adding notes of maple wood and clove. The retrohale burns with warming cinnamon spice.
As it progresses, dark chocolate rushes into the blend along with an espresso bean note.Hints of maple syrup sweetness and dark porter beer emerge.
Halfway, heavy whipping cream appears and white pepper begins to tingle the tongue. The flavors become more hearty and toasty. joins the mix along with subtle taste of Irish Cream liquor.
Last third is colossal! The cigar evolves into even more depth and richness. All of the aforementioned flavors are more pronounced with additional notes of graham cracker, vanilla beans, and honey. The flavor and complexity are incredible!
MAKIN’ BACON BLACK MAPLE is a cigar in a category all it’s own! The years of tobacco cultivation, the craftsmanship of the cigar, and the astounding flavors will have it landing squarely on the top of your top shelf!
