From the Ezra Zion HQ:
“We love our beer!
Making a cigar that tastes like our favorite beer varieties is the coolest thing in the world to us. Being able to share it with the #EzraZionNation is just awesome!
PEANUT BUTTER STOUT has been in the making for 3 years. It’s taken us that long to search out and procure the intensely delicious tobaccos needed to make this extremely special cigar!
Frankly, I'd need several hours, smoke at least 2 cigars, and a (very) generous pour of bourbon to fully tell you the amazing backstory of this blend. It's taken us literally years of searching--countless miles traveled--and going to some places you've never even heard of--to get the ultra-rare tobaccos that are in PEANUT BUTTER STOUT!
I just gotta tell ya...the complexity of flavors in PEANUT BUTTER STOUT are monumental! Seriously...it's even hard to describe some of the notes that we've detected in this phenomenal blend!
(In fact, the members of our super-secret tasting panel literally couldn’t believe the flavors that we achieved in PEANUT BUTTER STOUT. When you get a reaction like that from top cigar blenders/makers…you know that it’s something EXTRA SPECIAL!)
But a word of warning...This is a cigar for the true aficionado! (The novice smoker probably needs to pass on this one!) The flavors and character are deep, heavy, and rich...with a complexity that is absolutely astounding!
MARK MY WORDS...If ever there was an Ezra unicorn cigar...this is it!
PEANUT BUTTER STOUT is a full-bodied, med/full-strength 6x52 box-pressed toro. Wrapper is an oily 9-year-aged Sumatra Maduro leaf. Fillers will remain a very closely guarded secret...but they are all between 6-12 years aged!
First light is a massive wave of flavor! Dark chocolate, all-spice, brown sugar, toasted peanuts, and heavy cream rush across the palate. Hints of cinnamon stick, and mocha follow immediately after. The finish lingers long on the tongue with notes of nutmeg and vanilla bean. Retrohale adds a warming pepper burn.
As it progresses, the age of the tobacco starts to be tasted immediately. The flavor is hard to describe...but it's magnificent! Along with that are hints of raw cane sugar, bourbon barrel, and white pepper.
Halfway, the richness goes up another level. Peanut butter, caramel, milk chocolate, and aged leather emerge. Hints of cocoa, hazelnut, and clove appear.
Last third, everything gets even more intense! Blasts of dark chocolate appear. Powdered sugar, walnuts, star anise, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and butter. The last third of this cigar could possibly be the most complex flavors I've ever experienced in a cigar!
PEANUT BUTTER STOUT is intoxicating! It's amazing that we achieved these dimensions in a cigar--with no flavorings or infusions. It’s an absolute masterpiece!"
