CLEAVER ‘21 is a full-bodied, med/full-strength 6x52 prensado box-pressed toro. The wrapper is a flawless Corojo 99 leaf. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret. All tobaccos are aged between 6-12 years!
First light brings monumental flavors! 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 and vanilla. The retrohale is warming with a black pepper burn.
As it progresses, big blasts of caramel and cashews 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 brings everything to a crescendo! Huge notes of dark chocolate, dark stout beer, and jalapeño emerge. The brown sugar sweetness grows. The finish is long adding whipped cream and black coffee. The burn is perfect and cigar stays cool all the way to the nub of the nub!
