George T Stagg Bourbon
Age: 15 years Proof: 116.9 Street Price: $650
Wood is upfront followed by a cavalcade of dark sweets, dried dark fruit, spice, sweet tobacco and leather. Like with the nose it’s a dense complex flavor. A bit of water surfaces light notes of vanilla and burnt chocolate.

Bodacious Ecuadorean Habano Wrapper
Age: 24-36 months Strength: Medium Origin: Dominican Retail Price: $10.00
Pre-light this cigar is elegant with a smooth/tan wrapper reminiscent of saddle leather. At first draw you’ll notice the flavors of Tamboril, DR. A background of field and leather married to a hint of black pepper (there is more pepper here than you might expect from a Dominican cigar), citrus and floral essence. As you hit the second third the pepper fades slightly while white oak, toast and coffee join the party. Some even taste a touch of white sugar. This cigar might get lost in a barrel proof bourbon or Islay Scotch but finds a ready home when paired with anything 90 proof or lower. For the heartier bunch this goes well with coffee and a view of the sunrise.
Bushwacker Mexican San Andres Wrapper
Age: 36-48 months Strength: Med/Full Origin: Dominican Retail Price: $11.50
The first thing you’ll notice is the dark San Andres wrapper which even on the cold draw prepares you for what is to come. The San Andres wrapper has a large influence on this blend, bringing its rich undertones of leather, earth and wood as soon as fire hits the foot. As you smoke through the first third, you’ll start to notice more of the nuance provided in the Dominican Pilato Cubano core of the cigar with flavors of coffee, dark cocoa and even some spice. This cigar will make fast friends with hearty or high proof bourbons and whiskeys. With this level of strength and complexity, if you are having 2 cigars, this should be your second.
