Shirtless Mike’s Cigar of the Week- January 11, 2023 – Knuckle Sandwich Habano Corona Gorda

Knuckle Sandwich Habano Corona Gorda

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Binder: Nicaragua 
Filler: Nicaragua

This week I have decided to review another knuckle sandwich cigar by Erik Espinosa and Guy Fieri. This time it is the Habano in the corona Gorda size!

Upon first light I am getting a nice white pepper note right off the bat. Along with the white pepper I am getting some cedar notes mixed in and a little bit of nuttiness. As I progressed in smoking this cigar I started to get some floral notes mixed in with notes that remind me of the saltiness of sunflower seeds.

This cigar is a solid medium smoke from the time I lit it and the burn on it has been nothing short of exceptional. After noting how well the cigar has burned I started to taste notes of graham cracker and cocoa that kind of reminded me of a muted version of a smore with the slight sweetness that I was getting. After that went away some baking spice took over along with some black pepper notes on the back end.

As I approached the end of the cigar I started to get some leathery notes and hints of basil. Overall this cigar was very enjoyable. If you like a solid medium bodied cigar then this is definitely worth checking out next time you come into the shop. After all the boxes say Made In Flavortown so that is exactly the experience you will have when you smoke a Knuckle Sandwich!
