Fall is great for a lot of reasons such as pumpkin beer, spiced whiskey and Halloween festivities. It’s also the perfect season for cigar aficionados. Binny’s Cigar Buyer George Eshou recommends these four cigars because they fit the theme and the season well with their peppery and spiced flavors.
This Nicaraguan Puro is covered with a near vein-free wrapper that gives off an attractive barnyard aroma. Initial flavors of spice and nuts lead to the addition of dark chocolate and leather notes on this medium to full-bodied smoke. The blend lingers on the palate for minutes at a time and is relentlessly complex. A great expression of what well aged Nicaraguan tobaccos can produce when properly blended.
Surrogates Skull Breaker
A Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper covers the Nicaraguan tobaccos that make up the blend of the Skull Breaker. Black pepper, espresso, and cedar notes dominate this cigar’s flavor profile yet perfectly marry together on the palate. This is a cigar that’s intended for the experienced smoker with its “full plus” strength profile. While strong, it’s balanced and extremely complex.
Edgar Hoill OSOK
These cigars come beautifully packaged in ten count boxes that are wrapped with bandanas displaying artwork related to the theme of the cigar. Each cigar is individually wrapped with tissue paper and more artwork sheets. As gorgeous as the packaging is, the real beauty lies beneath all that glamour. The blend is simply delicious and delivers perfectly balanced flavors of café con leche, touches of vanilla, sweet cedar, and leather. A must try!
Asylum Straight Jacket
The Straight Jacket is Asylum’s attempt at combining strength and finesse all in one blend. This full-bodied cigar uses a combination of different Nicaraguan tobaccos that hail from various valleys from this renowned tobacco growing country. The use of more ligero leaf in this blend delivers a sophisticated punch that reveals an array of flavors that span from cocoa, coffee bean, spice, and roasted nuts. Enjoy this blend right away or put it down to transform over time.
