From the Ezra Zion HQ:
KNIFE FIGHT XQ Edition is badass and outta control!
You love Machine Gun, Sawed-Off Shotgun, Revolver...and the original Knife Fight release still remains one of the most sought after cigars we've ever done!
But KNIFE FIGHT XQ Edition turns up the action even more!
Just prepare yourself for some seriously tasty and intense tobacco! KNIFE FIGHT XQ Edition is very bold and uber-rich. BUT it's so complex and loaded with layers upon layers of flavor...that it's a mouthwatering stab-in-the-neck (in the best way possible!)
But word of warning...KNIFE FIGHT XQ Edition is a cigar for the seasoned cigar smoker! It's loaded with so much phenomenal ligero tobacco...that the novice smoker is gonna be punching way above their weight-class.
The “XQ” in the name of this blends stands for “Extra Quality”. Again, the tobaccos featured this cigar are absolutely incredible. (I know we always “nerd out” on the tobaccos, but our excitement for the cigars we create is kinda indescribable!)
KNIFE FIGHT XQ Edition is a full-bodied, full-strength 5x52 short toro wrapped in a luscious Corojo 99 rosado leaf. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain secret...but all tobaccos are between 6-13 years aged!
First light is awe-inspiring! Huge waves of extra-dark chocolate and aged leather instantly wash over the palate. Immediately following, bold flavors of caramel, heavy cream, and dark-roasted coffee appear. The finish is long adding vanilla bean and dark brown sugar. Retrohale is very warm with a red pepper burn.
As it progresses, cocoa and leather come to the fore. Hints of black walnut and red oak. The finish continues to impress--very clean with hints of clove and spice.
Halfway, maple wood, white pepper, and cask-strength whiskey emerge. The finish brings waves of black licorice, toasted marshmallow, and sweet tea. The age of tobacco really starts to be tasted. It's a mature, refined flavor that only comes from extra aging. So delicious that it's hard to describe!
The last third everything gets intense! Creamy espresso, dark leather, and red pepper become pronounced. Balanced perfectly by flavors of toffee, cinnamon stick, and cashew. Unbelievable down to the nub!
I’m just gonna be blunt—KNIFE FIGHT XQ Edition is intoxicating! It's an excessively rich and complex blend! Wow, for once I'm speechless!
