It just doesn’t get any better than an Ice Cream Sandwich!Anytime creamy vanilla ice cream gets smooshed between those 2 chocolate cookies...it’s gonna be a really good day! We just can't imagine a better flavor profile for a dessert-style Ezra Zion cigar!
We’ve had the ICE CREAM SANDWICH xCRÈME project on the table in the EZHQ blending lab for several years!We’ve been blending and experimenting...trying different wrappers, fermentations, primings...to get this exactly perfect for you!
“xCRÈME” stands for “Extra Creamy”! We took the ice cream flavors of this blend and went beyond anything we thought was even possible!
The “deliciousness” of ICE CREAM SANDWICH xCRÈME is off the charts! It’s intensely rich and extremely decadent!
And, in our (biased) opinion, this cigar is our top contender for Cigar of the Year (so far)!
If you're a fan of ultra-creamy, sugary sweet, and deep rich chocolatey flavors...then you just might have a new favorite cigar with the ICE CREAM SANDWICH xCRÈME!
ICE CREAM SANDWICH xCRÈME is a full-bodied, medium-strength 6.5x50 toro-extra. The wrapper is a silky Criollo 98 leaf. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain a closely guarded secret...but all tobaccos are 7-13 years aged!
First light is an explosion of flavor! Huge waves of dark chocolate chips, vanilla ice cream, and baking spices. Fresh-roasted coffee beans, black pepper, and cane sugar immediately follow. The finish is long, adding notes of milk chocolate and butter. The retrohale brings a warm cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, notes of Oreo cookies, dark brown sugar, maple wood, and macadamia nuts. The blend gets toastier with hints of nutmeg and cocoa powder.
Halfway, it gets even richer! Bold notes of Tootsie Roll, cafe latte, cake frosting, and aged leather emerge. Toffee, cardamom, and graham cracker immediately follow. The flavors are so complex, they’re almost hard to describe!
Last third, everything crescendos! Warm caramel, white oak wood, and nutmeg join the mix. Creamy espresso, custard, and toasted almond are detected. The flavors continue to layer and layer over each other. The complexity is unreal!
