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.0 0
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!0 0
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.0 0
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.0 0
