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.

"Aside from the harshness of the initial puffs, I can't say a negative thing about this stick. Bitter flavors typically aren't my go-to when it comes to cigars but oddly they worked in this blend. The transitions were smooth, gradual, and plentiful which certainly made for an interesting smoke. As did the gambit of flavor profiles that encompassed everything from spicy, sweet, salty, tangy, and bitter. I also enjoyed that the flavors came full circle and ended where they began, intriguing me with every puff along the way. I can't help but wonder if some additional aging or time in the humidor would help smooth out some of the harshness at the very beginning. Overall, this cigar was immensely enjoyable and one that I will certainly seek out again." -Noah S. (Noah)
"It is not easy to make a great figurado, at least one that pleases me. This cigar definitely was a hit for me. The construction and draw were spot on. The profile was complex and a great compilation of notes that I relish. You can't go wrong with the sweetness of chocolate-covered cherries and the spice of red pepper. Add in root beer and you've got a fan in me. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"This was a rich earthy coffee cigar with side flavor notes or cabinet spice, cherry stone fruit, and nutty flavor. The cigar has a strong mouthfeel that coats the palate. Huge smoke bomb of a cigar producing a ton of smoke. Retrohale was at first super spicy red pepper and cinnamon and then calms down towards the end of the smoke." -Chad M. (Chad Tchad)
"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)
"Overall, this was an enjoyable cigar with very mild flavors, it remained medium bodied and light throughout the experience. The smoke started off fairly creamy and dried out throughout the cigar but never to a point of dislike. I would definitely recommend this to individuals with a lighter palette and would consider smoking again for sure. It would go well with any light flavor drink from clear soft drinks to lager beers and white wines." -Angel M. (Angel)
"This little perfecto was a flavor bomb from start to finish. There were clear transitions in each third. It should be easily approachable for every cigar smoke and could become someone’s everyday cigar. This might be the best cigar I smoked this year. It will for sure find a home on my top cigar of the year list. I highly recommend you seek this cigar out." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
"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)

"Smooth and perfectly balanced was the name of the game for this cigar from beginning to end. The transitions in flavor profiles were subtle yet plentiful enough to keep my palate engaged while the contrast of bitter and sweet complimented each other in such harmony that was not overly complex or obscure. Every puff was thoroughly enjoyable and even though it was almost a two-hour smoke, I didn't want it to end." -Noah S. (Noah)
