Well, here I am sitting in the cat bird’s seat. I have a cigar to review that the wonderful, and lovely, Abe Dababneh, of Smoke Inn sent me; 2 months before they go on sale.
And even better, is that they are Matt Booth’s latest incarnation made exclusively for Smoke Inn, called Big Delicious; which is Abe’s nick name around the shop. This is the 6th installment of their Microblend series. The previous releases are the Tatuaje Anarchy™, Padrón SI-15™, My Father El Hijo™, Arturo Fuente Solaris™, and the Tatuaje Apocalypse™. I’ve reviewed all but the Padron.
The official national launch is scheduled for April 26th, 2013, at Smoke Inn’s new Boynton Beach location. An already sold out fancy schmancy dinner will occur on February 15 as sort of a sneak peek for those attending. Pre-release orders will be taken on April 5, 2013.
The cigars are to be made in one size – a 6 1/4 x 42-54 torpedo with a shaggy, closed foot. The cigars will sell for $8.95 and be packaged 15 per box. A box will go for $134.25.
The cigar is to be produced at the Tabacos Rancho Jamastran in Danli, Honduras. At the moment, the binder and filler are somewhat of a mystery as information about what is what is still a secret. But it’s been disclosed that the wrapper is a very high grade Habano 2000.
A web site has been put together at Room101BigDelicious.com which will be part informational and part fun.
On to the cigar…
