Bee's Knees is one of the most popular cigars we've ever released. And for good reason, the rare and vintage Nicaraguan tobaccos used in it are legendary! It won a 96 Rating and was a Top 10 List Award Winner in 2015.
Well, we knew we could do better than that. Ladies and Gentlemen, the Bee's Knees XL!
Bee's Knees XL is a gorgeous super-toro Nicaraguan puro. It took us nearly 2 years to track down the tobaccos we needed for BKXL, in fact, some of them were so old we couldn't read the ink on the bale tag.
Bee's Knees XL starts with a caramel and cream blast across the palate. The age of the tobacco is tasted right out of the gate. Subtle notes of cashew, dark chocolate, and nougat appear. The retrohale is warm with a beautiful cinnamon burn.
Halfway, BKXL evolves further into a creamy dream come true. The creaminess is thick, like drinking a breve latte. This is balanced by the wood notes of oak and cedar. Leather and vanilla gradually appear. Hints of toasted almonds and raw sugar cane round out the finish.
The last third is magical! Gentle blasts of toasted coconut, coffee, and wildflower honey. The retrohale grows in strength adding savory black pepper to the blend. Amazing!
Bee's Knees XL is a 100% must have cigar! I sound like a broken record every release...."you'll wish you'd bought more than you did!"
I apologize in advance to everyone who missed out on this. It's going to be SOLD OUT very fast! And believe me, once Bee's Knees XL is gone, it's gone forever! Getcha some NOW!
