I’ve mentioned before, this is my favorite brand. This cigar is the original blend of that line. Very full-bodied and packed full of intricate flavor. From the Cigar.com description:
The secret to this full-bodied blend stems from its rare and expensive Habano Ecuador wrapper. The leaf is taken from the upper middle portion of the plant, known as viso, which is where some of the richest, oiliest and most coveted tobacco can be found. These viso leaves are then put through a three-year fermentation process that is personally overseen by Fernandez himself. Once this incredibly tasty wrapper is ready, it is combined with a blend of aged Nicaraguan filler, harvested from three separate farms. AJ then personally proportions the tobacco, since this blend is one of his most closely guarded secrets, to create an incredibly rich and complex cigar that falls right in line with the best premium sticks on the market. These cigars have all been aged at least six additional months after being rolled, to ensure that the wrapper blends harmoniously with the complex mix of filler. Man O’ War produces hearty, earthy flavors with hints of cashews and almonds that are masked by a peppery aftertaste and a touch of sugar.
Please try this blend and anything else from the entire brand out. Just this month Man O’War came out with a new blend called “Skull Crusher”. Just based on the name alone I cannot wait to try it out.
PS: I added a greyscale picture, just to be a little bit more artistic. Let me know what you think!
PPS: I seem to be having a problem with the glare off of shiny cigar bands. If anyone who’s better at photography than me (shouldn’t be hard) can give me an ideal solution, please comment and let me know your solution to fixing that. Thanks!
