From the Ezra Zion HQ:
“It's time to belly up to the bar and get a deep pour of BLACK RUM!
It's taken us almost 4 years to get this one just right! This blend had to be meticulously tweaked and changed to get the nuanced flavors and layered complexity we wanted in the BLACK RUM LIMITED EDITION project!
Traditionally, Black Rum (the liquor) is made from years and years of extra-aging in charred rum barrels. In fact, its the longest aged style of rum. It adds intensely rich flavors of spice and syrupy sweetness.
We’ve captured the same richness, depth of flavors and intensity in the BLACK RUM LIMITED EDITION blend! And…It's so luxurious and elegant that it's almost hard to describe!
This is—without a doubt—one of the most unique and delicious Ezra Zion blends we've ever created! Cheers y’all…you’re gonna love it!
BLACK RUM LIMITED EDITION is an alluring full-bodied, med/full-strength 6x52 classic toro. We've procured some very proprietary tobaccos for this blend so we aren't disclosing any of them. But, I can tell you that all tobaccos used are between 5-12 years aged.
First light is an instant wave of pure cane sugar, leather, and honey. Spiciness of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg follow. The finish is clean and balanced adding vanilla bean. The retrohale is warming and brings another layer of sweet cinnamon.
As it progresses, molasses, coffee beans, white pepper, and brown sugar emerge. Hints of earth, European butter, and dried fruit join the mix. Subtle white chocolate notes on the finish.
Halfway, the blend rounds out and the age of the tobacco shines through. Oak cask wood, heavy whipping cream, and toasted almonds come to the fore. Hickory, anise, and all-spice follow. The finish lingers for several minutes on the palate adding notes of graham cracker and leather. Unbelievable!
Last third is utterly amazing! Cocoa powder, malt, and espresso appear. Hints of floral, cashews, toasted marshmallow, and beer hops. The burn is a razor's edge and the cigar burns cool all the way to the very nub! A masterpiece!
BLACK RUM LIMITED EDITION is an achievement of achievements! We've devoted so much time and attention to this project and we can't wait for you to smoke it!"
