“The NEWEST BEE’S KNEES blend is finally ready for you…And it’s absolutely LEGEND!
We've been working for 4+ years to bring you this EXTREMELY opulent cigar! Now the day has finally come to release BEE'S KNEES SECRET HONEY!
We've been blending and re-blending...trying to find just the perfect tobaccos that would be worthy of being the BEE'S KNEES SECRET HONEY.
After all this time...we've been rewarded with a cigar that is in our opinion...PERFECT!
BEE'S KNEES SECRET HONEY is decadent…sweet like honey…and completely luscious!
But this blend has a secret…may float like a butterfly—BUT it stings like a bee! It’s loaded with intense ligero tobaccos!
It’s the precision balance of the candy-sweetness and the fiery pepper that make this cigar a masterpiece!
If you like ultra-creamy, sugary-sweet, and rich-spicy flavors...then you just might have a new favorite cigar with BEE'S KNEES SECRET HONEY!
BEE'S KNEES SECRET HONEY is a full-bodied, med/full-strength 6x48 toro. Wrapper is an 11-Year-Aged Connecticut leaf. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret. All tobaccos are aged between 5-14 years!
First light is a huge wave of creamy white chocolate, honey, white oak, and black peppercorn. Espresso, aged leather, and clove immediately follow. The retrohale (where the magic happens) has a spicy pepper burn. The finish lingers on the palate for several minutes adding massive sweet and creamy flavors.
As it progresses, honeycomb, vanilla bean, and nutmeg are added. Cafe latte and toasted nuts appear along with hints of molasses and black tea.
Halfway the blend begins to "round out" and the flavor of aged tobacco begins to strongly emerge. Big notes of caramel, mocha, custard, and rum barrel. Hints of graham cracker and amaretto. The finish tastes like sugar cookies. I don't know how else to say it...This cigar is phenomenal!
Last third, everything crescendos! Bold blasts of sugar cane, cinnamon stick, licorice, red pepper, and butter. Creamed honey, maple, and brown ale. The burn is perfect and the cigar stays cool all the way to the nub!
BEE'S KNEES SECRET HONEY is an absolutely mouth-watering and delicious cigar! You are gonna savor every single puff! It smokes so perfectly down to the nub that it's hard to finally put it down and come to terms with the fact that it's finished."
