El Septimo Alexandra Marilyn
A “ladies’ cigar” is an interesting thing. While there are certainly women who prefer petite and milder smokes, there are also women who roast up some of the most flavorful, Medium-strength and full-spice stogies on the market. We really should get the data on it, but for now, let’s assume that they’re not the majority.
El Septimo seems to agree with this Alexandra series of cigars. They describe how each stick was “designed and blended exclusively for women after intensive market research, testing, and blending techniques.” These Alexandra cigars are crafted to “fit women’s preferences in regards to flavor, size, strength, smoothness, aroma and combustion.”
Ladies, El Septimo Alexandra Marilyn cigars are made for you. Only you.
But of course, anyone who wants can smoke them. They’re quite nice!
The focus in the line is on lighter smokes, but this isn’t a hard and fast rule. There are definitely stronger experiences available. For example, the Marilyn cigar comes in at medium strength and offers plenty of personality.
El Septimo Alexandra Marilyn cigars are 5 x 58 parejos that provide an impressive amount of smoke time. And the flavors are a real treat. Branding aside, any guy would love this stogie. The 5-year-old Costa Rican tobacco used brings in wonderful layers of aroma and taste.
El Septimo describes the flavor profile as a “delicious blend of chocolate and nutmeg” with “a light sweetness.” This is a cigar built for development over time, though. The company explains how the “second and final thirds of the smoke bring a strong flavor of dark roasted coffee.” As a final observation, they say that customers describe it as having the “ultimate buttery texture, paired with pleasing, but contrasting musky spices.”
We’re getting jealous of the ladies who will be toasting these up. Can we get a few puffs?
