*10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!*
When we first launched The Collective back in FEBRUARY 2014…we decided to take a handful of boxes/fivers and age them for several YEARS!
**THAT MAKES THIS THE 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SINCE THE RELEASE!**
We wanted to see what magic would happen to the cigars—their flavors, their character, their maturity.
Plus…it would serve as an anniversary of sorts. 9 years is a long time in “cigar years”. Lol.
These cigars are from the ORIGINAL 2014 PRODUCTION! And have been kept hidden in our aging warehouse all these years…waiting for today!
THE COLLECTIVE-Original Batch 2014 Production is one of those cigars that you tell other people stories about! You reminisce about that one time you smoked it at the lake. Or you lit one up when you got that promotion. It's just that good.
THE COLLECTIVE-Original Batch 2014 Production is a full-bodied, med-full strength 6.25x52 prensado toro... with insane amounts of flavor!
It features a San Andrés Café Claro wrapper—which had never been used before when we first made this cigar.
Think about it…this wrapper leaf was put on this cigar over 9 years ago. And it was about 5 years aged at that time. SO THIS IS A 14+ YEAR OLD SAN ANDRES WRAPPER!
Binder and fillers are Corojo 99 and Criollo 98 with tons of Medio Tiempo! (This stuff just ages so beautifully!)
So what has happened to the flavors?? Well, we think they are BETTER THAN EVER!
First light is smooth but still has robust body. Flavors of custard, cinnamon stick, milk chocolate, black coffee, heavy cream, and cedar rush across the palate.
Second third, raw sugar cane, dark leather, honey, black pepper, and vanilla emerge. All of the tobaccos have matured into an intoxicating symphony of flavors. Wow!
Last third, toffee, dried fruit, cardamom, and graham cracker appear. Toasted marshmallow, cocoa, and espresso beans join the blend. The burn is beautiful and the construction is perfect!
🏆It got a 93-Rating from Stick Review so you know this cigar is top shelf all the way!
IMPORTANT: We’ve only got A FEW ORIGINAL BOXES of these! Once these are gone…we will be inundated with emails of people trying to get them. You’re gonna have to hurry so you don’t miss out.
