Scandalous is full-bodied, full-strength 6x54 box-pressed toro. Wrapper is an 11-year-aged Corojo 99 leaf. Binder/filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret. All tobaccos are aged between 8-12 years!
First light is incredible! Huge blasts of dark chocolate, vanilla bean, and sugar cone rush over the palate. Heavy whipping cream, aged leather, and red oak wood follow. Retrohale adds a warming cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, caramel, toffee, and white pepper appear. A nutty note that tastes like toasted cashew and almond emerges. Some might say it tastes kinda like Almond Roca.
Halfway through, fresh brewed coffee with cream, all-spice, and vanilla ice cream are tasted. Graham cracker pie crust, dried fruit, and maple wood.
Flavors crescendo on the last third. Everything intensifies! Retrohale has a gorgeous cayenne pepper burn. More waves of nougat, vanilla bean, and walnut. Espresso beans and white chocolate emerge. It perfectly balances the complexity and sweetness of the other flavors.
