Very enjoyable cigar, the pen broadleaf is dark oils, and sweet, the binder and fillers give pepper, dried fruits and a morning coffee. Ash was loose, and flake like, but didn't ruin the cigar. A firm construction and an enjoyable time exploring what the Ace of Spades offers. For its price its an excellent cigar. And I will definitely be keeping a few Rebellion Cigars in my collection. A great non pretentious Cigar....
Today's cigar is named after Motorhead's famous song "Ace of Spades". This product is perfectly suited to this time of year: autumn is coming and the call to more enveloping and meditative notes is getting stronger. This cigar has precisely these characteristics. The first puffs are dedicated to a creamy hint of coffee, a very important aroma that will accompany us throughout the smoke. Subsequently, more spicy notes take over, among which we find pepper and hints of pine. Later we find leather notes, accompanied by a nuance of honey and citrus. These last hints are very particular and characteristic, capable of giving the cigar those notes that you would not expect from a smoke of this kind. The cigar ends with notes of toasted almonds and dark chocolate. The smoke has considerable strength and is recommended after having a good meal. It turned out to be a very satisfying smoke!
What a wonderful cigar .. The Ace of Spades ♠️ Size: 52 x 5" Wrapper: Pennsylvanian broadleaf maduro Binder: Brazilian Filler: Cuban-seed Dominican, Nicaragua, Panama.. What a great construction, oily Maduro wrapper , construction was superb. The draw , burn line and smoke were superb . Retrohale was lovely and brought out extra dried fruit flavour . So many flavours in this cigar , chocolate, sweet cocoa , sweetness like a mix of caramel and honey , slightly peppery not overbearing at all , earth and wood were prominent in places , I found all the flavours intermingled beautifully and were delectable on the palate and senses . I would recommend this cigar . It’s strength to me was medium and not heavy on the palate at any stage . I thoroughly enjoyed this it is indeed an ace in Rebellion Cigars pack . 9/10 in my Humble Opinion.
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.
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
Had this one tonight and its my favourite so far !
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.
