I'm just gonna come right out and say it. Ace in the Hole is a major BADASS!
I know most of my cigar names are all about tits and ass but this blend needed something with a darker edge.
I couldn't wait to get Ace in the Hole released. If it doesn't get at least one Cigar of the Year Award then the system is rigged! I would put this cigar up against any of the top tier boutique companies. You know who you are!
I'm sure that you're speculating on who made this blend with me. I can tell you that whomever you think--that this is the best cigar that's come out of their factory!
For some street cred...I'll mention that the first CFT release received a 99 Rating this week. And I'll let you in on a little secret: Ace in the Hole is even better IMO!
Ace in the Hole is a densely packed 5 x 54 with golden-honey colored Habano wrapper. This wrapper leaf looks like silk! No veins. No seems. Absolutely flawless!
I used an Esteli ligero in this. A LOT! When I do a retrohale on it, it waters my eyes. In a good way! Full body, full strength, full flavor!
Flavors include cayenne pepper and custard. Very leathery with coffee beans and chocolate. We also tasted cinnamon, maple wood, brown sugar and iced tea.
Super complex. Sh*t is amazing!
We've only got 2 of these and I recommend you get them fast!
