From the Ezra Zion HQ:
“The Blessed Leaf projects hold a very special place in our hearts—practically sacred!
Those who know us know that we pull out all the stops for every Blessed Leaf blend that we create—Going way beyond what even we think we’re capable of!
Blessed Leaf cigar releases are a way for us to share and celebrate our faith in Christ. So they all have to be perfect!
It is the absolute best of our best!
Blessed Leaf LION OF JUDAH is the culmination of a project we started back in 2018. We’ve been secretly collecting the rarest and vintage aged tobaccos…and setting them aside just for this blend!
After all these years of meticulous blending, the result is a tremendously rich and decadent cigar...with flavors and complexity that are unrivaled!
I’d go so far as to say “Divinely inspired”!
Blessed Leaf LION OF JUDAH is a full-bodied, med/full-strength 6x46 skinny toro. Wrapper is a 10-year-aged Corojo 99 rosado wrapper. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret. But all tobaccos are 6-12 years aged!
First light is extremely rich! Caramel, leather, toasted almond, and white pepper blast across the palate. Hints of brown sugar, hazelnut, and cinnamon follow. The finish is very creamy and lingers long on the tongue. The retrohale is strong adding a black pepper burn.
As it progresses, heavy cream, sugar cane, cocoa, and black tea appear. Cashew and milk chocolate begin to emerge as well.
Halfway, the blend rounds out. The body becomes very silky and creamy balanced by red pepper and cedar wood. The finish becomes sweeter with notes of vanilla bean and cappuccino.
Last third, everything intensifies and becomes very chocolatey! Raw leather, black coffee, and amaretto are added to the mix. Clove and nutmeg tingle the tongue. Bourbon flavor emerges and remains all the way to the nub! Absolutely incredible!
Blessed Leaf LION OF JUDAH is a sophisticated and sultry cigar! The perfect combination of complex and rich flavors with impeccable balance and strength!"
