Cuban Stock cigars is one of those boutique companies that is flying under the radar but deserves to be seen, heard, and smoked. I have had a couple of the regular Chubby in the past and enjoyed them very much. This ultimate line is no exception and its a nice looking cigar. According to their website:
“After years of trying to find the best tobacco for the Ultimate, we finally decided to grow our own tobacco. Using cuban seeds in a very unique area in the Dominican Republic, we managed to get a full flavored tobacco. We ferment the tobacco for two years in wine barrels, resulting in a very smooth, but strong tobacco. We use a Dominican binder and wrapper which makes for the ultimate power house in cigars! This is a cigar for the experienced smoker or the smoker who wants big, bold flavor. The Chubby Ultimate is full bodied, dark and oily. It has a large ring gauge, is masterfully constructed, and is firm with a loose draw. We have the cigar you’ve been waiting for! The Ultimate Chubby!”
With a description like that how could I not try this new ultimate version out? Well let me tell you it did not disappoint. What a rich flavor this cigar produced, upon initial light up there were flavors of leather and spice followed up with earthy undertones. The cigar had a couple of touch up issues but that is to be expected form such an odd shape. This is one of my favorite cigars when I want something slightly powerful but full of flavor. The only downside is that they are really hard to find. I can’t even tell from their website who their distributors are… http://www.crowndavid.com/ Hopefully somebody from the company will chime in the comments section.
