"This was a cigar of interesting finishes. From the onset, the primary flavor was espresso, and remained so throughout. What changed was the nature of the finishing flavors and the accompanying strength. Initially creamy, the finish transitioned to peat and finally to salted caramel. I thoroughly enjoyed the transitions and I think most smokers would as well. I would gladly smoke this again!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"From the mouth-watering dinner rolls to the unique ending, this cigar was all over the place. It kept me engaged the entire time, waiting to see what came next. Add in the fact that it wasn't overly light or heavy-bodied, it hit just right for me. I was pleasantly surprised with the entire experience and it is one that I could see myself picking up a fiver to have again." -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"Overall this was a very good cigar. There was plenty to like about this stick in its presentation, to is flavors, and to its performance. This cigar started out with a bang by giving me heavy chocolate soufflé flavors then switching it up to walnuts and eventually giving me must notes all bringing me cream and butter on the retro and black pepper on my palate that would not leave......it's just lingered. I would venture to say this is at a minimum worth picking up a fiver, and I am curious to see what I smoked. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
"Overall, this was an excellent cigar. It started off a little rough, but the rough patch only lasted for just a moment. Shortly after a few draws, everything transitioned into a much smoother and more flavorful cigar, so don’t let the first few puffs fool you. It does have a little nicotine punch, so maybe not for someone too sensitive to nicotine. The dominating flavors of Coco, baking spice, and cedar along with the leather kicking in towards the end, made for an overall enjoyable experience. I did find that although the smoke was smooth during the second and final third, it did dry out my mouth a little bit, so you would want to have something on hand to drink while smoking this cigar. I would definitely recommend this to individuals with a more robust pallet and would definitely smoke this again. " -Angel M. (Angel)

"If it weren't for the fact that this cigar had me woozy, I'd rank it higher. I'd love to see this in a smaller vitola, perhaps a robusto or Corona Gorda. If you love these powerful cigars and have a couple of hours to kill, this cigar is definitely for you. Rich bold flavors with a ton of strength. Not sure I'd smoke this again, especially in this vitola. Anxious to see what this was. Happy holidays to all of our readers out there!!" -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
"It's rare to say I've had an epic experience with these blind reviews, but this is definitely one of those times. The flavor profile hit my palate in all the right areas. Chocolate, cocoa, black pepper, earth, and baking spices came together to create an amazing smoking experience. I can't wait to hear what this cigar is because I'll definitely be looking to buy a box. Thanks for the chance to try this." -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
"I really couldn’t be happier with this cigar in regard to performance and the flavor profile. It was never overpowering but had the fuller flavor profile that I prefer. I paired this with a barrel-aged stout (2022 Black Tuesday) and it was a perfect match. I would gladly recommend it to any of my cigar-smoking friends, and I will absolutely seek out more when I find out what this is! Very good cigar!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
The Knuckle Sandwich maduro might be my favorite cigar of the last year, and this one comes close to it. It is more refined, but without the power and spice that define the Knuckle Sandwich Maduro. I only have one of these cigars and I can't wait to pick up more to age and enjoy. This collaboration between Espinosa and Guy Fieri knocks it out of the park at every opportunity, and everyone should try a Knuckle Sandwich whether it's this one, or one of the other options.
"Overall, a very good cigar. With enjoyable flavors of cedar, cinnamon, and leather along with a pepper background. there was a small nicotine buzz that kicked in towards the end but nothing I couldn’t handle. The texture of the smoke was fairly smooth and the temperature was between warm and cool. I would definitely recommend this and put this in my rotation." -Angel M. (Angel)
