Tasting Notes

  • Upon opening i notice the construction of this new .50 is completely different than Rolling Thunder Cigars previous releases. He mentioned having a new manufacturer and it definitely shows. The quality of construction is outstanding.
  • The cold draw brings notes of bitter cocoa. As I light and get into this cigar Im rushed with a black pepper spiciness, strong leather with very faint cocoa on the exhale.
  • The 2nd 1/4 to the middle bring all the usual flavor suspects you would expect from a full bodied cigar. Pepper, leather and wood/cedar. A strong hay profile comes out. Its burning perfectly so far. Let rest between draws.
  • 3/4 of the way down the pepper wanes substantially in the front of the mouth on the inhale but a spice lingers strongly at the back of the throat on the exhale. No doubt about this being a full bodied cigar. Hay and leather flavors continue and a slight acidic flavor profile appears.
  • To the nub the spice on the back of the throat slightly grows while the leather and earthy flavors take over the cigar. While not a complex stick it produces smoke like a 3 alarm fire. I had to touch up the burn a couple of times on the last 1/4 but it burned beautifully throughout.

This sticks aroma brings back childhood memories of my Grandfather...who always had a cigar in his mouth. This cigar has an old-school feel...no frills just good strong tobacco. While not complex, this cigar definitely packs a punch and it got me a "cigar high"! Congrats to Dave Cribbin and Rolling Thunder Cigars for stepping up their cigar game. Great price point, grab a box. www.rtcigars.com

I have been smoking cigars for 14 years. The past couple of years I’ve taken the cigar lifestyle and culture very seriously and started to seek out information on the  cigars I was smoking like the origin of the tobacco, the blending process, production and other aficionados cigar experiences. I love many cigars…but the recent boom in boutique cigar production has provided me the opportunity to learn about new cigars from initial concept to final product. I’m very active on Social Media and enjoy discussing cigars with people from all over the world. I’m a tradesman by day and Pit Master for my own BBQ catering business in Sarasota, FL called Mouthole BBQ…Look us up!
