El Septimo Diamond Double Shot White
El Septimo Diamond Double Shot White cigars are some short super fat smokes from a high-quality collection. The Diamond blends are built around aged Costa Rican tobacco from El Septimo’s valuable aging vault. The company is known for leaf from this region and extensive aging in particular, so getting select blends that combine the maker’s biggest strengths is bound to produce some decent smokes.
Double Shot White cigars feature tobacco aged for around 5 years, which is a solid amount in the world of cigars. The vast majority of aged blends are using leaf that has spent a year or two developing. 5 years takes you into the realm of tobacco that has gone beyond straightforward notes and that has begun to show the subtle and complex aromas you only get with more extensive aging. Blends go 10, 15, and even 20 years before you get into truly crazy and rare vintage smokes, but 5 years is the entry point of long aging, in our opinion.
El Septimo Diamond Double Shot White cigars are considered by the company to be the “younger brother of the Fabuloso,” another Diamond Collection smoke. We’re guessing that this means the blends are similar and the size is what sets them apart. Those who have tried the Fabuloso Dark Ruby know it to be a huge, rich smoke with plenty of flavor. We expect that you’ll get something similar in the Double Shot White, just in a much shorter format. Instead of being a monster stogie, this one is a 3 ¾ x 68 fatty that definitely gets the job done in a more brief session.
The maker describes the Double Shot White as having a “motherlode of leather notes,” making it comparable to some decent Dominican smokes out there. It then continues into a “nice blend of black pepper and almond with a silky coffee finish.” If it sounds pretty decadent, you’re starting to understand what this piece of puff is all about. “Textures are as creamy as homemade ice cream, adding warm notes around a semi-sweet, plummy draw.” This is a wonderful dessert smoke, perfect after a good meal with whiskey, wine, espresso, or just good old strong coffee.
You bring the beverage. We’ll bring the smoke.
