From the Ezra Zion HQ:
““Bacon makes everything better!” ...No truer words have ever been spoken!
It’s taken us 2 long years to release another Makin' Bacon blend. The reason is simple...it had to be better than all its predecessors!
We know that the various projects we've done--Brass Knuckles, The Raven, Makin' Bacon, Blessed Leaf, Army Men, etc.--have become institutions in their own right.
That sets the bar even higher than usual. Every single release has to not only be a home run...it has to be a total GRAND SLAM!
Well, we finally did it! Ladies and Gentlemen..the MAKIN’ BACON SUGAR GLAZED!
MAKIN’ BACON SUGAR GLAZED is a full-bodied, full-strength 6x46 skinny toro. Wrapper is an oily 10-year-aged Sumatra maduro leaf.. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret. All tobaccos are 6-11 years aged!
First light is a huge blast of caramel and red pepper. Milk chocolate, tanned leather, and nougat follow close behind. The finish lingers long on the palate adding notes of maple wood and clove. The retrohale burns with warming cinnamon spice.
As it progresses, dark brown sugar rushes into the blend along with an espresso bean note. Hints of maple syrup sweetness and black cocoa emerge.
Halfway, notes of Bourbon whiskey appear, and white pepper begins to tingle the tongue.The flavors become more hearty and toasty. Molasses sweetness joins the mix along with subtle taste of Irish Cream liquor.
Last third, things get even more intense! The cigar evolves into even more depth and richness. All of the aforementioned flavors are more pronounced with additional notes of graham cracker, vanilla beans, and honey. The flavor and complexity are incredible!
MAKIN’ BACON SUGAR GLAZED is a cigar in a category all its own! The years of tobacco cultivation, the craftsmanship of the cigar, and the astounding flavors will have it landing squarely on the top of your top shelf!"
