Ace Of Spades- Aroma - farm yard with tight seams and fairly veiny & cold draw was clean and very firm with a sweet earthiness. At start was hint of earthiness with a creamy espresso & smoke output was light and plenty with touch of spice & hay on the retro and nice draw line. Halfway - great construction ash very solid and fell in 1-inch chunks and got tastes of espresso & earthiness with hint of pepper. Final Third - a nice draw line with delicate spice with sweet finish and a honey hint and continuing with the earthiness all the way through. Creamy cedar and toasted nuts still smoke light and coats palate with a sweet taste. This gritty cigar become a full-bodied cigar leather notes and bits of pepper and with this being said in my opinion very medium to full strength cigar- tastes were creamy-leather -earthiness with sweetness of honey & toasted nuts and touch of honey & creamy espresso and touches of cocoa -Time was 1hr 20. Real nice easy cigar.
Had this one tonight and its my favourite so far !
As I conclude my journey through the Rebellion Sampler, Ace is the 'big brother' of Sweet Child. I ABSOLUTELY loved Sweet Child, and Ace takes it up a peg flavour-wise. So Sweet Child is dark chocolate - Ace is espresso. The slightest pepper comes back, whereas Sweet Child didn't have it. The three-amigos of the sampler, for my money is Voodoo, Sweet Child and Ace. I won't be in bad company with any of these 3. A wonderful cigar again. This is the evening cigar of the trio. Bravo again Rebellion xx
Strap yourself in this baby is strong, initial thoughts was it was bit too powerful, but it soon settled, lovely espresso notes, would pair well with a morning coffee but it feels like a late evening cigar. A lovely spice starts to come through at the second third a slight nutty pepperiness running with the flavours. I paired it with a Belgian tripel and they complimented beautifully, smooth pleasant draw too. Very nice and a sublime experience.
