New Cigars 12.8.15.
Last night I had a dream that I smoked every single cigar ever created, from every town, city, country, and providence in the world. I traveled high and low to sample the best and the worst stogies that the planet has to offer. When I finished the very last one (in Nepal,) I had achieved Cigar Nirvana, complete tobacco-induced enlightenment. It was a crazy dream. Crazier than the one I had about fighting Mike Tyson in the graveyard, and the one about getting one of those car dealership key mailers that actually won me a new car. Upon waking, I immediately reached for my stash of these New Cigars; it was the only thing I could do to keep the good vibrations going:
Psyko Seven Maduro Psykorillos
Adding to the growing list of high quality cigarillos that have been showing up here lately, Psyko Seven Maduro Psykorillos somehow manage to corral the riotous taste of Psyko Seven cigars into a convenient 3 1/4×20 quick-smoke that you can revel in on your 15 minute coffee break. With the temperatures hitting new lows all across the country each day, one could say that these little flavor-bangers have arrived right on time. The Psykorillos will help make even the frostiest of winter days more tolerable as they warm the senses with dense, earthy taste and a spicy pepper kick. Have at them here.
Espinosa Laranja Reserva
Erik Espinosa’s Laranja (Portuguese for “Orange”) Reserva takes its name from its vibrant Brazilian wrapper leaf which has a unique and distinct, orange hue to its natural color. But the uniqueness of this excellent Nicaraguan-made cigar doesn’t end there – the Laranja presents one of the most colorful flavor profiles ever to hit our humidor, with tones of hickory sweetness, peppery spice, rich almond paste, espresso, and, yes, orange citrus. This blend is relatively new to the market, but that hasn’t stopped it from already scoring as high as 93 in Cigar Aficionado ratings. Strong in body and striking in taste, if you like an engaging and adventurous smoke, Laranja Reserva should be your next conquest.
La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse
La Aroma de Cuba’s first ever limited edition release, the Noblesse ain’t cheap, but nothing this great ever is.
Handmade in Nicaragua by My Father Cigars S.A., the La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse wraps a special Ecuadoran Habano Rosado leaf around a proprietary blend of Garcia Family tobaccos to bring us a supremely silky, perfectly balanced flavor profile. The Noblesse’s laundry list of tasting notes is enough to make Marvin Shanken blush, with layered tones of nuts, leather, fruit, spices, coffee, honey, and cream pouring thick through a smooth and generous draw. Showing up with these smokes at your holiday party would be akin to serving Filet Mignon at Christmas dinner – so top-of-the-line that it’s almost overkill. Almost. Grab them right here and smoke like a big shot at a considerable discount.
That’ll do it for now. Mosey on back here next week for more updates, y’hear?
