Everyone knows that crescendo of all of our cigar releases for the year is the Ugly Christmas Sweater! This is the third annual release, and as such we absolutely pulled out all stops for the 2017 blend!
Our goal with this year's Ugly Christmas Sweater blend was to make a cigar with the classic flavors of Christmas. Ya know, the one's that make you all toasty inside. We wanted to invoke the nostalgia of this special time of year!
Ugly Christmas Sweater 2017 is a classic 6x52 toro with full body and strength. The wrapper is an 11-year-aged Colorado leaf. Fillers are vintage San Andres and Nicaraguan tobaccos. It's outrageously complex!
First light is a rush of smooth leather and dark chocolate. Toasted almond and black pepper follow immediately after. The finish is very creamy with a hint of clove and anise. The retrohale burns with cinnamon and cayenne.
As it progresses, the strength continues to grow. Woodsy flavors of cedar and oak come to the fore. These mix with a spicy maple flavor to create (no joke!) a taste reminiscent of gingerbread.
Further on, hints of Cognac begin to appear at the beginning of each draw. The body of the cigar rounds out adding a gorgeous leathery character. The finish is long bringing vanilla bean and caramel to the mix.
The last third sees a dark roasted coffee bean note appear. Cocoa, cinnamon, and hints of toffee finish out this masterpiece of a cigar!
Ugly Christmas Sweater 2017 is in a word...Unbelievable!
My friends, we'd love to come to each one of your homes and smoke a Christmas cigar together with you. Because we can't do that, we've made you Ugly Christmas Sweater as our gift to you so that we can celebrate the birth of our Savior together--albeit from long distance apart.
