“From the darkest shadows and farthest reaches of EZHQ...Another RAVEN is born!
THE RAVEN BLOOD RED adds yet another glorious chapter to the epic Raven Series saga. And this Raven is--just like it’s predecessors--a total and complete masterpiece!
But you know our #1 Rule...Each RAVEN release must be even better than before!
I can tell you for a fact…we put our Blood, Sweat, and Tears into THE RAVEN BLOOD RED project! (Hence, the name.) We are just completely obsessed with surpassing our previous work—and exceeding all expectations!
If you’re an Ezra Zion fan, THE RAVEN BLOOD RED is one of the best cigars you’re ever gonna light up!
It features some of the most elegant and sophisticated tobaccos we've ever smoked! It’s toasty and sweet, but expertly balanced with cocoa, leather, and spices.
This is a cigar that you will absolutely CHERISH!
THE RAVEN BLOOD RED is a full-bodied, medium-strength 6x52 classic box-press toro. Wrapper is a beautiful Colorado leaf. Fillers will remain a closely guarded secret. But...all tobaccos are aged between 8-12 years!
First light is an explosion of milk chocolate, white cake frosting and tanned leather. Brown sugar, coffee beans, whipped cream, and cardamom immediately follow. The finish adds a long note of Madagascar vanilla. The retrohale adds a warming cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, caramel, bourbon whiskey, and candied walnut emerge. Hints of cloves, graham crackers, and cedar wood add amazing layers of complexity. The age of the tobacco is already shining through—giving the blend a richness that completely opulent!
Halfway, the flavors continue to grow even richer! Mocha and heavy cream emerge. It's balanced beautifully by white pepper and nutmeg. A sweet powdered sugar note lingers long on the fInish. So luscious!
Last third, everything crescendos! Coffee beans and raw cane sugar come to the fore. All-spice and raw honey join the mix. The flavors intensify all the way to the nub of the nub! This cigar is a complete masterpiece in every way!
THE RAVEN BLOOD RED is the most LUXURIOUS Raven blend we’ve done yet! The richness and depth of flavor are going to absolutely astound you! You’re gonna love it!"
