This cigar is 7 years in the making!
Story Time! ...7 years ago in Aug 2012, a small boutique company no one had ever heard of set up their tiny booth in the "new brands" section at the IPCPR trade show. Armed with only one cigar named "Inception" we set out with no experience, no slick sales-pitch, and just let the tobacco do the talking!
It's been a life-changing journey ever since!
We've gone to some amazing places and met some of the greatest people you'd ever have the privilege to know. Best of all, we get to share our passion for cigars with people from all over the world. It's amazing!
To celebrate a journey that epic....we had to make a cigar that epic! The 7 Year Anniversary!
7 Year Anniversary is a full-bodied, med/full strength classic 6x52 toro. The wrapper is an oily Connecticut Broadleaf maduro (the picture doesn't do it justice.) Fillers are from various regions in North, Central, and South America but specifics will remain a closely guarded secret. All tobaccos are aged between 8-11 years.
I'm gonna make a bold statement, but I know it's true...7 Year Anniversary will be one of the most sought after and coveted unicorn cigars in the Ezra Zion ethos!
First light is overwhelming with flavor! Big notes of dark chocolate, creamed coffee, black pepper, vanilla bean, heavy whipping cream and nutmeg. (And that's just the first puff!) Notes of licorice, cedar wood, and brown sugar linger on the finish. The retrohale adds a sweet cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, sweet tea, cocoa, and clove emerge. Hints of candied nuts, honey, and white pepper. Subtle note of Tootsie Roll stays on the palate until the next puff.
Halfway, it gets even more amazing! The chocolatey notes grow with added hints of cinnamon stick, cappuccino, and buttercream. Sugar cane sweetness with tanned leather and earth appear. Big blasts of caramel wash over the palate. (I'm speechless. Wow!)
Last third is completely unbelievable! Bourbon barrel, toasted marshmallows, molasses, and hot chocolate are added. Toffee, fresh roasted coffee beans, hickory, and all-spice. The burn is cool and the complexity continues to increase all the way to the nub of the nub! This is--without a doubt--one of the most delectable and delicious cigars I've ever tasted!
7 Year Anniversary is a cigar to be cherished! We poured our heart and soul into this project to make it the most phenomenal cigar we could possibly achieve!
7 Year Anniversary will be SOLD OUT so fast! Sincerest apologies to those who miss it! We try to let everyone know ASAP whenever there's a new release. (Make sure to join our text notifications by texting EzraZion to 31996.)
I can't stress to you enough how astounding this cigar is! Do whatever you have to do to get as many of these as you can...as fast as you can!
Getcha Some NOW!
