CFT COLOR PROJECT GINGER (SOLD OUT): It’s been 4½ EXTREMELY long years since the last release of GINGER! In fact, most people have only heard of this cigar. Never even seen one in person....let alone smoked one. Fans of the COLOR PROJECT blends, it’s—as they say—dream come true time! GINGER is a full-bodied, medium-strength 5x52 robusto. Wrapper is a flawless Corojo rosado leaf draped over Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. FLAVORS: Heavy cream, powdered sugar, coffee beans, milk chocolate, Spanish cedar, cinnamon, vanilla, toasted almond, raw leather, white peppercorn, cardamom, and caramel.

KING OF SPADES (PRE-RELEASE): You get the first behind-the-scenes look at the newest Cigar Federation Tobacos release, KING OF SPADES! This 6x52 belicoso has been several years in the making! It’s covered in an oily Corojo 99 wrapper leaf with fillers from Nicaragua and San Andres! Full-bodied with Medium-strength. Flavors are smooth and delicious! Expect notes of caramel, heavy cream, cinnamon, coffee bean, tanned leather, and milk chocolate (just to name a few!)
SOUTHERN DRAW BRIMSTONE OBLIVION: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder BRIMSTONE is one of the hottest NEW releases of 2020! (pun intended!) OBLIVION is about the coolest vitola you’re ever gonna see. It’s a 5x58 Perfecto size/shape. OBLIVION is a full-bodied, full-strength powerhouse cigar! I can tell you from personal experience that it not only packs a wallop BUT it packs TONS of complexity and flavor! OBLIVION starts with full-throated flavors of creamy espresso, black pepper, and tanned leather. Dark chocolate, candied almond, and heavy cream immediately follow. The retrohale is strong with a warm red pepper burn. The second third begins with notes of warm caramel, white pepper, dark brown sugar, and cloves. Hints of bourbon whiskey and vanilla bean appear and balance the cigar perfectly! Last third is a show-stopper! Big bold notes of dark ale, cafe latte, chocolate cake, and raw sugar are added. Hickory wood, raw honey, cinnamon stick, and burnt marshmallows round out the flavors! (Literally one of the best cigars I’ve ever smoked!)
DISSIDENT SOAPBOX: It just so happens that the Dissident SOAPBOX is made by our friend and new Dissident owner, Ben Holt. He's taken this brand, re-done the branding, the blends...everything! The Dissident SOAPBOX features a Brazilian wrapper, Ecuador binder, and Nicaraguan filler. It's made at Oveja Negra factory in Nicaragua. SOAPBOX a phenomenal cigar in every way...the complexity, balance, flavors, burn. It's the total package! Expect notes of cocoa, caramel, heavy cream, hazelnuts, cinnamon, nougat, cedar, whiskey, coffee beans, and clove. Bottom Line...Dissident SOAPBOX is an incredible cigar!
WHIPPED CREAM: Whipped Cream is RIDICULOUSLY tasty! It will probably induce you to mutter a little profanity to yourself because of how amazing the flavors are when you first light it up. (You know what I'm talking about. We've all done it.) Whipped Cream is a medium strength, smooth little number wrapped in a specially fermented Connecticut wrapper. And it's beautiful. It comes from one of the finest growers of Connecticut tobacco in the industry. Flavors are (you guessed it!) VERY creamy, buttery, and sweet. Milk chocolate, cashew, and toffee all make appearance along the way. The candy like flavors are balanced perfectly with hints of cedar wood.
