You'll need 2 full hours to get through this baby. The 'Egg' is a true one-of-a-kind cigar made from a 4-nation blend that's jam-packed into this rotund, savory bomb. Beginning creamy and smooth, Egg explodes at its center with deep, rich-tasting complexity. A must-try for the adventurous smoker.
Honestly, I wasn t expecting much when I bought this, but I ve been curious for a while and I thought I d give it a shot. It doesn t taste anything like the other Natural vitolas, but it s surprisingly good. I couldn t see how it could last two hours, but then it hit the egg part and turned way mellow and slow-burning. It was great as far as novelty cigars go, and way better than I expected. I wouldn t pay full price for it, and I didn t, but I would buy it again if it was on sale.
Title says it all
My Egg came included in an Auction purchase that was filled with many Name Brand cigars that had been stored away in the basement of an old Victorian house long abandoned by a family with too much worth . It looked aged but somehow maintained its integrity = great care was put into making this odd egg. I babied it for six months rehumidifying it along with the other dried out aged smokes. The first puff made me smile and it held true to it s two hour enjoyment claim. I put it up high on my list of surprising and satisfying stogies. For sure it is not for everyone, it s shape alone will separate the herd with most shying away from it due to appearance alone. I recommend this only to my more seasoned cigar connoisseur friends. Yes, a cork was quickly pulled on my finer Brandy. It was an experience rather than just another smoke with friends who share the enjoyment that can only come from a quality smoke. Age may have played a part with this one s tastse. I will know how it compares to it s more modern Family. I say enjoy one but prepare before you embark on it s journey. Make the time and correct compliments to get the full value an Egg Offers.
It was a pretty good, but not exceptional smoke. It was mild, with surprising changes in taste, but was an uneven burn and began to fall apart toward the end. I wasn't disappointed, but it's not something I would choose to smoke often.
