Ezra Zion is a company that is fairly new to the cigar market however, they continually impress me with the cigars that they are producing.  One of the newest cigars they have releases is the Ezra Zion Eminence.  The Eminence will be available in six sizes; Belicoso Gran Toro 5×58, Belicoso Box Press Gran Prensado 7×54, Exquisito Box Press 6 ¼ x52, Churchill Box Press 7×48, Corona 6×46, and Gran Robusto 5 ¼ x50.  Total production of the Ezra Zion Eminence is going to be 300 boxes each with 21 cigars.  Distribution of the Ezra Zion cigar lines are handled by Emilio Cigar.

Looks wise this cigar is a good looking stick.  The first thing I noticed was the box pressed shape and triple cap of this churchill.  The Nicaraguan wrapper leaf is a medium to dark brown and is somewhat toothy with minimal veining.

The flavor profile of the new Ezra Zion Eminence is where this cigar really shows what it is made of.  The cigar offers very attractive nuttiness with hints of leather and molasses.  The wood flavorings that are present in this cigar taste almost like that of charred oak barrels.  A quarter of the way into this cigar, you start to notice very subtle bits of pepper flavor.  The more I smoked this cigar, the more it opened up with flavor and the more enjoyable it became.

Burn wise this cigar held up pretty good.  The Eminence burned all the way through requiring only two touch ups, not bad for a Churchill cigar being smoked outside.  The smoke on this thing was running like a freight train bellowing out tons of thick white smoke.  The ash held firm only falling when tapped off.

Buy it?  Heck yeah.  This cigar is available in a number of sizes to fit everyone’s favorite sized cigar.  The flavors are simply amazing on this stick and continually develop and surprise throughout the smoke.  I can honestly say this is a cigar that I was sad to see end and smoked it until my lips were about to burn.  The price is on the higher end, but don’t let that prevent you from trying this great stick.  The quality of the tobaccos in this cigar truly makes it worth every penny.
