Elixir 5-50 is healthy mix of case and flue-cured tobaccos, with a pistachio sweetness unfamiliar to the traditional tobacco fermentation process. Light up and vanilla cream, nougat and crushed peanuts tease the palate in preparation for the buttery smooth-smoke that follows. Very tasty!
I tried one of these while on vacation in Cali, and was hooked. I bought a box to give out as Christmas gifts and everyone loved them "except one, always gotta have one...LOL". If you like Juicy lucy, which burns a little hot for me, well this is like a big one that burns cool. I too found myself smoking them to the very end. It has found a place on my top 10 list.
I'd say this has become one of my top 3 most favorite cigars. I'm a big drew estate fan and this one didn't let me down. I smoked it till my fingers couldn't hold on anymore. The best thing is theres no cigar turd mouth the next morning after having one of these!
Took a vacation over the summer, and picked this boy up by chance. Never heard of the brand before. Could've been attracted to the glass tube :) Anyway, I wasn't expecting anything special, just a good smoke. I was blown away by the incredibly sweet aroma, and no nasty morning-after taste. Great choice. Top pick.
Looks great in the individual glass containers, but the wrapper most probably infused, since the flavor diminishes over time is way to sweet, tasting like a Swisher Sweets. The tobacco in the filler isn t too bad, with a mild profile and not too much complexity yet good consistency throughout and making for an even burn. The binder didn t seem to add anything to the flavor profile. I d rather smoke flavored pipe tobacco than having to put my lips again on this wrapper.
