BRASS KNUCKLES SECRET WEAPON is taking no prisoners! It’s aggressive and raucous. It’s got massive flavor and complexity. The balance is perfection and the construction is dead nails!
And it’s loaded with sophisticated and nuanced flavor dynamics that are gonna boggle your brain-housing group!
(In fact, one member of our esteemed tasting panel said “This cigar is so freakin’ intoxicating— that you’d think it would be illegal!)
It’s seriously the perfect cigar!
I could literally nerd out for hours telling you about the rarity of the tobaccos and the years of blending that went into "SECRET WEAPON”. I could go on and on about the richness and the insane complexity. BUT...I’m just gonna let the tobaccos do the talking on this one!
BRASS KNUCKLES SECRET WEAPON is a full-bodied, med/full-strength 6x52 classic toro. All tobaccos for this release will remain a closely guarded secret (It is called “Secret Weapon” after all.) But...all tobaccos are aged between 6-12 years!
First light is an explosion of flavor! Milk chocolate, dark brown sugar, black pepper, tanned leather, and almond rush over the palate. (The complexity is almost overwhelming) Espresso with cream, raw cane sugar, and maple wood follow. The retrohale is strong adding a cayenne pepper burn.
As it progresses, heavy whipping cream and caramel appear. Cinnamon stick and white pepper emerge along with cardamom and nutmeg.
Halfway, the richness and body grows even more. Waves of dark chocolate emerge. Bourbon whiskey, cashew, coffee beans, and hint of sweet cinnamon join the mix. The complexity is almost to much to describe! Amazing!
Last third everything crescendos! Huge blasts of spiced rum, buttercream, and cedar wood are added to the mix. Chocolate frosting, molasses, and toasted nuts. The cigar stays perfectly cool and the burn is a razor's edge all the way to the nub!
This is Ezra at it's absolute best!
BRASS KNUCKLES SECRET WEAPON is hands-down the most phenomenal Brass Knuckles release so far! In fact, it may be our favorite Ezra release so far! (But, seriously...this is not for a novice smoker. This is a seriously sophisticated and deeply rich smoke.)
