Edgar Hoill happens to be the guy who teamed up with Matt Booth of Room 101 cigars, and their collaboration resulted in the underground sensation, One Shot One Kill. Now Edgar has decided to partner with Christian Eiroa (of Camacho fame) for this tasty new line of cigars. Each handmade is wrapped in delicate tissue paper with an elaborate spider web design on the outside, and is then encased inside a classic cedar box. The aesthetics alone are enough to pique your interest.
But as any seasoned enthusiast knows, packaging isn't everything. This Nicaraguan puro is legit, and starts with a dark and oily Habano wrapper. The long leaf Nicaraguan fillers are generously proportioned, and the construction on these gems is top-notch. This medium to full-bodied blend releases complex notes of black pepper, earth, and cashews while hints of espresso come through on the finish. While delicious right out of the box, Edgar Hoill cigars are even better with some age on them. They're a fantastic addition to your humidor.
As the second line to Foundation Cigar Company, The Upsetters is taking the industry by storm with its powerful message and inspirational packaging. Jamaica, having a long history of growing tobacco that rivals Cuba, is representative as the main component to this stunning blend. Paying homage to the Underdog, The Upsetters is one cigar sure to come out on top.
The Upsetters Django begins with a recipe that rocks a unique Jamaican tobacco inside, which imparts an essence that's extra savory and memorable. This Caribbean leaf is then paired with premium Nicaraguan long-fillers—these tobaccos draw a connection between each country as they are linked through an underwater shelf in the Caribbean known as the Nicaraguan Rise. A sleek Sumatra wrapper leaf is applied and supplies a slight spice and some natural sweetness with some extra sugarcane on the cap. Going further down the flavor spiral - the special 'Caribbean atmospheric herbal infusion' process each Upsetter undergoes creates an overall experience reminiscent of the popular ACID line of cigars, but quite different in its own impressive way.
