El Septimo Luxus X-Trem Shot Green
El Septimo Luxus X-Trem Shot cigars (not to be confused with Extreme Shot Green) are among some of the most popular El Septimos out there. Sometimes, a bit of a gimmick just works, and a nice super bite-sized cigar with flavorful tobacco is one of those times. Folks just love these little smokables.
And they’re not throwaways by any stretch! These feature seven-year-aged tobacco in the mix and likely incorporate some of the company’s signature Costa Rican leaf. While everyone is focused on some of the more mainstream growing regions (with good reason), El Septimo dares to be different and is helping bring a different type of blend to market.
So let’s get into specifics. El Septimo Luxus X-Trem Shot cigars are 2 x 56. Sorry to be so blunt, but two inches is pretty tiny. However, it’s perfect to suit the purpose of these appetizer smokes. The company reports that they’re crafted to give “a moment of intense pleasure.”
Hey. Where we come from, that’s exceeding expectations.
Anyhow, if you’re going to be brief, you have to be memorable, and the X-Trem Shot cigar is. El Septimo states that “flavors and immediate strength are its main characteristics,” and it seems like the cigar does indeed deliver. Light it up and right out of the gate, there’s a lot going on. Dark chocolate, pepper, leather, and hints of sweetness on the finish are the core experience. There’s plenty of complexity to go along with it, so savor your limited time with this one.
How long does it last? El Septimo describes it as “A great cigar to be paired with your morning espresso for a 20-minute energizer boost to get through the day.” It also sounds like an outstanding break cigar in the middle of a workday on a job site or outdoors. If you have to quickly get back to work and stub it out, there’s not much lost. It gives you a surprisingly interesting cigar for a moment and then sends you on your way.
Oh yeah. El Septimo says that “it must be hand-lit with precaution,” so don’t burn yourself getting it started.
