All My Ex's Special Edition is a full-bodied, med/full-strength 7x38 lancero. The wrapper is a gorgeous 9-year-aged Criollo 98 leaf. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret...but all tobaccos are 7-12 years aged!
First light is a HUGE blast of flavor! Brown sugar, caramel, cinnamon stick, and red pepper rush across the palate. Candied almonds, heavy cream, and woodsy notes of whiskey barrel immediately follow. The finish is long adding raw sugar and leather. The retrohale adds a warm pepper burn.
As it progresses, espresso beans, maple, and black peppercorn appear. A wave of vanilla bean immediately follows giving a lingering creamy sweetness.
Halfway, the flavors get even more rich and intense! Tootsie Roll, melted butter, and aged leather join the mix. The vintage tobacco notes start to shine through beautifully. Cocoa powder, cloves, and white cake. Phenomenal!
Last third, everything crescendos! Huge flavors of dark chocolate, macadamia nuts, and cayenne pepper. Sweet tea, hazelnuts, and licorice emerge adding to the extremely complex bouquet of flavors! Absolutely incredible!
