Camacho Imperial Stout Barrel-Aged - Cigar Review

Camacho & Cigar Dojo
Imperial Stout Barrel-Aged
650 Toro

Have you listened to my "Hairy Legs in a Floral Sundress" Kaplowitz Radio: July 30, 2017? Please do, gentlepersons. After fully reviewing the title, my wife raves: "It's insensitive." I think it's on iTunes et al, if I did it right; but listen HERE from any device at any time.
Veiny and not too tightly wound -- a lot like moi. It doth burn cleanly tough, and tightens up-on progression. Dense silvery ash. Retro-hale is a schnoz fulla wasps. Notes of Dark chocolate and fruit syrup with heavy peppercorn. Sarsaparilla-espresso drenched peaty compost under-belly. Twixts are a top & bottom melange.

Vice President of Marketing for Davidoff of Geneva USA, Mr. Dylan Austin: "We could not be more excited to share the results of this project with everyone. Imperial Stout Barrel-Aged is something we’ve been working on for more than a year and the result is so unique. We took our Triple Maduro blend as the base, and aged the Original Corojo Maduro fillers in spent bourbon barrels, which then held Ten FIDY Imperial Stout. The taste experience is one of a kind."

Cigar Dojo owner Eric Guttormson, via press release. "Without question the Cigar Dojo/Camacho Imperial Stout Barrel-Aged is the most complex project we have ever been involved with. For our seventh special cigar release, we wanted to stretch the boundaries of what could be done with a small-batch, craft cigar. The flavor that the tobacco has developed from the barrel that was once used for bourbon and then Ten FIDY Imperial Stout is truly a work of art." The fella just rubs me the wrong way even as I read that. Oh, well. 

Owner of Smoke Inn Cigars (to which this offering is exclusive), Abe Dababneh, "Bourbon, Beer, and Cigars, what’s not to love about the new Dojo Imperial Stout Barrel Aged made by Camacho Cigars?! Smoke Inn couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this unique project that will never be replicated."

I wrote this Camacho Triple Maduro - Cigar Review forever ago. Again, that is the base of this blend.

Sample courtesy: Mr. Toar Campbell, 

Ya got some barrels that Bourbon was aged in. 
Then them same barrels were used to age a stout. 
Then they were used to age some a' this leaf.
Then I got dizzy on my porch whilst not tasting a lotta tastes.

"Tisha B’Av, the 9th day of the month of Av (Jul. 31 - Aug. 1, 2017), is the saddest day on the Jewish calendar, on which we fast, deprive ourselves and pray. It is the culmination of the Three Weeks, a period of time during which we mark the destruction of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem." - Chabad.

... what better a reading accompaniment than:
"You Nazy Spy! was the first American comedy film to satirize Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany. It beat, by nine months, Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator, out of the starting gate. It also helped in the making of The Great Dictator in a not-so-subtle digs aimed at those trying to censor the Chaplin film..."Please, gentlepersons, read my full review a' The Three Stooges - You Nazy Spy! (1940).
