Red Army Men
The next installment of in the Army Men Series is gonna blow you away!
Red Army Men is vintage as vintage gets. We reached way back into our aging vault to get the oldest and rarest tobaccos in our arsenal. These tobaccos are the crown jewel of our stash! The top shelf! The creme de la creme!
Red Army Men is a full-bodied, med/full strength skinny toro. The wrapper is a silky Corojo 99 leaf from the 2011 crop. Fillers are all aged from 8-10 years!
It's in a word: Perfect!
First light, the age of the tobacco is tasted right away. Toasty leather notes complimented by cocoa, white pepper, and buttercream. Hints of clove. Retrohale adds a warm cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, the creaminess begins to grow. Spanish cedar, amber ale, and raw sugar emerge.
Halfway, the blend "rounds out" and really comes into its own! Beautiful flavors of caramel, nougat, and milk chocolate add more sweetness to the blend. Hints of black coffee and red pepper appear. The finish is big and stays on the palate for a long time. It's like the flavors just don't want to let go. You'll be smacking your lips after every puff!
Last third, the richness of the flavors deepens. Each puff is an explosion of complexity. The woodsy notes tick up a notch. Vanilla bean and baking spices appear. The construction and draw are perfect. The burn line is straight and true! It's an unbelievable smoke!
If you liked the previous Army Men...you're gonna LOVE Red Army Men! It's--in our opinion--the best one yet!
Red Army Men will be SOLD OUT very fast! Apologies to those who miss it! Our production on these is less than usual. We just didn't have very much tobacco on this one! It's an instant unicorn for sure!
