From the Ezra Zion HQ:
There's just nothing better than Cookies & Cream! Anytime ice cream meets Oreos...it’s gonna be a good day! We can't imagine a better flavor profile for a dessert-style Ezra Zion cigar!
We’ve had the COOKIES & CREAM ‘23 Ltd. project in the EZHQ blending lab for almost 4 years! We’ve been blending and re-blending...trying different wrappers, fermentations, primings...to get this exactly perfect!
And, in our opinion, we’ve absolutely hit it outta the park!
If you're a fan of creamy flavors and deep rich chocolatey flavors...then you just might have a new favorite cigar with the COOKIES & CREAM ‘23 Ltd.!
It’s DECADENT and EXTREMELY DELICIOUS! (Take my advice...hoard these and don’t share them!)
COOKIES & CREAM ‘23 Ltd. is a full-bodied, med/full-strength 5.5x52 short-toro. The wrapper is a gorgeous, specially-fermented Oscaro leaf. Fillers are a closely guarded secret...but all tobaccos are 7-11 years aged!
First light is a wave of black cocoa, dark chocolate chips, sweet cream, and baking spices. Fresh brewed coffee, black pepper, and vanilla ice cream immediately follow. The finish adds a lingering dark chocolate and buttercream. The retrohale brings a warming cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, notes of Oreos, dark brown sugar, white oak, and whipped cream appear. The blend gets toastier with hints of clove and cocoa. The balance is impeccably perfect!
Halfway, it gets even richer! Bold notes of milk chocolate, cappuccino, cake frosting, and aged leather emerge. Toffee, dried fruit, cardamom, and graham cracker immediately follow. It's hard to describe how deep the flavors are. It's completely incredible!
Last third, everything crescendos! Caramel, whiskey barrel, and nutmeg join the mix. Creamy espresso, custard, toasted almond, and chocolate cake are detected. The flavors continue to layer and layer over each other. The complexity is off the charts!
COOKIES & CREAM ‘23 Ltd. is...dare I say it...one of our favorite blends ever! I don't mean to sound cliche, but it's just so magnificent! It's phenomenal!"
