Ave Maria Dark Knight
Ave Maria Dark Knight cigars aren’t branded on medieval fables where the dark night is the evil villain. The only thing making this stick dark is the toothy oiled-up Nicaraguan Habano Maduro wrapper. This leaf conceals a Nicaraguan binder and rich, aged Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos. This is one strong Nicaraguan puro that many say is the strongest Ave Maria offering to date.
On the cold draw, we're getting wood, leather, and cocoa. After lighting one of our Ave Maria Dark Knight cigars up, we're immediately hit with black pepper. A lot of black pepper. Beneath this pepper invasion, there is leather, cocoa, and earth. The draw is effortless, and so far, the burn line is fantastic.
Smoking a little further down, and we're starting to get the hint that this black pepper note is most likely here to stay. That's cool with us because this potent puro is making us feel alive! Moving into the last third of the stogie and the black pepper, earth, wood, and cocoa are all going strong, with the black pepper pulling way ahead.
Please enjoy Ave Maria Dark Knight cigars at your leisure.
