Warfighter Tobacco Company, LLC, is owned and operated by combat Veterans. Warfighter Cigars are hand rolled in Nicaragua by the Plasencia factory and blended by the owners of Warfighter with the expert help of David Blanco. All of our cigars come in two versions: Garrison and Field. Every Warfighter has a duty uniform and a dress uniform. This particular cigar is The Garrison: 7.62 mm Garrison has a Rosado wrapper form Nicaragua, the binder is Nicaraguan, and the filler is Nicaraguan and Dominican. (Medium Strength)
The metallic band is a bit hard to see/read unless on top of a white background. It displays the WF logo with the bearded gentlemen with a cigar in his mouth and donning shades. The cigars’ wrapper has a nice slick/shiny sheen to it. The wrapper does seem a bit toothy as there are quite a bit of visible veins, but I am not seeing any seams to speak of.
Upon inhalation of the body I get a sweet musty aroma with a bit of some barnyard and earthy aromas. A deep inhale from the foot gives me more sweetness with some coffee elements. On the cold draw I get that same familiar sweetness along with some white pepper.
Upon lighting the cigar there is a rich amount of smoke which pleases me. The first few puffs and there is already a party in my mouth with a sweet mustiness, some black pepper and nuts and cream. There is a really nice white ash that has formed. Rounding out this third nuts are more dominate on the finish and retro hale.Definitely a medium in strength.
Starting off this third, there is quite a bit more black pepper along with more of that musty sweetness underneath, which makes for an interesting & tasty experience. Strength is staying at a medium, at the end of this third the pepper is all but gone, and the mustiness is front and center.
Spice has really picked up making the strength ramp up a tad to medium plus. There are flavors of leather, wood, black pepper & coffee. I am mostly picking up walnuts on the retro, with just a tiny bit of sweetness to round it all out.
Warfighter Tobacco Company have only been around for the past couple of years. I applaud the men behind the brand. They are group of veterans who passed the time during their deployment smoking cigars, and decided to start their own company, from Nebraska no less……this is no small feat, but they did it through blood seat & tears. Congratulations gentlemen.
Their cigars are backed with a guarantee, that if there is anything wrong with your cigars, be it draw, too wet or damaged, they will replace it with no questions asked. Luckily my samples were just fine, and there were no touch ups needed on the burn, the draw was nice and open with just a tiny bit of resistance. This Toro last me right under the two hour mark, and it was an enjoyable smoke from beginning to finish with plenty of transitions to hold my attention.
