From the Nomad HQ:
"Most have only heard rumors of this cigar! It’s one of the rarest Ezra Zion releases of all time!
WINTER ALE was originally released in 2018...and it fast become one of the rarest and most sought after Ezra Zion Unicorn cigars in the world!
After setting the bar so high with our beer-style releases—Chocolate Porter, Chocolate Stout, Amber Ale, etc.—we had to make this WINTER ALE SPECIAL EDTION release absolutely colossal!
You know us by now...we are OBSESSED with making cigars better and better! More delicious— More flavorful— More decadent!
So, after 5 long years, WINTER ALE is finally back to warm your soul during these cold, dark winter months!
I gotta tell ya—WINTER ALE SPECIAL EDITION is the absolute perfect combination of smooth cream and complex spice!
(Seriously, I can’t believe that we achieved these flavors in a cigar blend!)
Winter Ale is a full-bodied, medium-strength 6x52 classic toro. Wrapper is a silky 11-year-aged Connecticut leaf. Fillers will remain a very closely guarded secret...but they are all between 8-11 years aged!
First light is a wave of white pepper, creamed coffee, and cinnamon stick. A blast of milk chocolate and oak cask follow. Finish adds a caramel and vanilla note. Retrohale is smooth with a warming cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, the blend takes on an extremely creamy body. Black pepper, cocoa, and malt appear. Subtle hints of beer hops begin to appear. The balance is perfect and the finish is long and clean.
Halfway, toasted nuts, semi-sweet chocolate, and spruce emerge. The sweetness begins to grow with the taste of cake frosting. Multiple baking spices appear: nutmeg, clove, and more cinnamon. Very aged tobacco flavor lingers on the palate on the finish. Mind blowing!
Last third, whiskey barrel and leather emerge with hints of caramelized sugar. The strength and body swell. Hints of dark chocolate and heavy whipping cream round out the flavors making the mouth water!
The burn and the construction are absolutely impeccable throughout. WINTER ALE SPECIAL EDITION is a cigar that you will undoubtedly smoke down to the nub! A total lip-burner!"
