Revere by 262 Cigars

What can be said about Clint Aaron that you wouldn’t read in most blogs. First off, Clint might be one of the most down to earth individuals I have met inside or outside of the cigar industry. First time I met him was at the Cigar Station in Spring Hill with Nate McIntrye a little over a year ago. Since then, I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to chat with him and regretted the several times he has been in the Nashville area that I had to miss out on his company. Clint is an interesting guy. Some would say that what drives him is his desire to create something totally unique in the cigar industry.Cigar Genius, Rover lover and a man that  has a sexual appetite that would make Michael Douglas seem gay. Now, on to the cigar.

I managed to bum a robusto off of Clint at the 2012 Chatt Tweet Up, but failed to let the thing stand long enough for me to write a review. So it was with some level of patience that I waited for the release of the Revere with anticipation in trying it in the box pressed toro.

The Building Blocks:

Wrapper comes from the Jalapa Valley

Binder: Jalapa Valley and Esteli

Filler: Combination of  Condega, Jalapa, and Esteli

So Basically this thing is a power house of “bad ass” Nica tobacco.

Be warned my weak hearted friends, while Paul Revere’s famous ride has been debated by Historians for decades, one thing for sure is this Revere will set it’s own true path. The cigar itself has a very slight box pressed when compared to the other lines in the 262 catalog, at least in my opinion. But what does stand out is the great artwork on the band and the magnificent wrapper. It truly is a beautiful cigar to look at.

With this much Nicaraguan tobacco, it is no shock  that spice is present through this cigar. It is however, not a “spice bomb” but a very well constructed, well balanced  full flavored cigar. The burned stays even through out the entire smoke which took just about an hour and a half.

To the Point:

The Positive: This cigar will be on my Top 10 of the Year. Bottom Line. End of story. I don’t know where it will fall, but the bastard will be there. I love everything about the two sizes I have smoked and look forward to grabbing the others in the line up as well. Those sizes include a robusto, corona and the box pressed Toro. A lonsdale is available exclusively through J Shepherds in Louisville Ky. They range in price from $7.50-$9.00 and it’s worth it. TRUST ME.

The Negative: Well the only negative I can think of is that THE LONSDALE IS ONLY AVAILABLE AT J SHEPHERDS. DAMN IT CLINT!!!

Would I buy this again? Absolutely. They arrived at Cigar Station on Monday of this week and I have smoked 3 (it is now Thursday) so if that’s any indication, I will be back for more.

  1. Pat, I totally agree…Clint does have the sexual appetite of….wait…no, I agree that this is Clint’s best so far and a fantastic smoke. It’ll end up in my top cigars of the year as well.
