We love doing nostalgic projects that take us back to the good ol' days! Rookie Cards, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Punkin' Pie...these were all inspired by great memories from days gone by.
Root Beer Float is a retro-styled cigar that utilizes vintage tobaccos and is blended in a very Cubanesque profile. It's retro in it's packaging, retro in it's tobaccos, and retro in it's *amazing* blend profile.
We know Ezra has a (very well deserved) reputation for strong, in-your-face cigars...and we love those! But, sometimes we like to change it up and really do something very unique and special.
Root Beer Float is a full-bodied, medium-strength 6x54 toro. The wrapper is a 8-year-aged Corojo rosado with fillers from Nicaragua and San Andres. All filler is over 7 years old.
First light is a wave of creamy vanilla, leather, spice, and fresh brewed coffee. Maple syrup sweetness with hints of cinnamon. Retrohale adds a warming pepper burn. The finish is long and clean.
As it progresses, notes of white frosting and milk chocolate emerge. Hints of oak barrel, brown sugar, and a subtle black pepper are tasted. Big vanilla blast on the finish.
Halfway the body of the cigar begins to strengthen. Notes of honey, cocoa, heavy whipping cream and molasses. The pepper grows into a red pepper with a greater bite. The richness and depth of the tobacco increases tremendously.
Last third the blend rounds out and becomes velvety smooth. Licorice, clove, and caramel appear. Additional hints of nutmeg and almond. So complex and delish!
What can I say? Root Beer Float is amazing! A phenomenal vintage project made with vintage tobaccos.
Root Beer Float will be SOLD OUT very quickly! Take my advice: don't wait to get this one! It's an absolute treasure!
