Spiked Eggnog Special Edition is a full-bodied, med/full-strength box-pressed 5.5x52 short-toro. Wrapper is a 10-year-aged Corojo 99 rosado wrapper. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret...But they are all 7-14 years aged!
First light is a complex blast of custard, vanilla bean, caramel, honeycomb, milk chocolate, and red pepper. Undertones of nutmeg and leather follow closely and strike the perfect balance in the flavors. The retrohale is strong adding a warming cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, whipped cream and mocha emerge. Big notes of vanilla ice cream appear with hints of clove and white pepper on the finish.
At the halfway point, the blend rounds out. Dark chocolate, sweet tea, cinnamon stick, and bourbon emerge. The body of the cigar becomes toastier.
Last third, everything intensifies! Unbelievable flavors of brown sugar, maple wood, and graham cracker begin to develop. Hints of all-spice and black pepper add subtle spiciness. A chocolate buttercream frosting sweetness follows.
