Out of cellophane cigar smelt of hay and earthiness Sniffing foot and cut was chocolate and hay with sweet finish.. Wrapper was a dark tan, veiny and bumpy with a slight sheen/ oilyness. Seams were visible. Cold draw was slightly earthy with a definite chocolate there. 1st 3rd was spicy/peppery, light wood with a touch of almond on finish. Retrohale light pepper and zingy. 2nd 3rd lots of leather, peppery and woody. Slight hint of nut. Hasn't lost peppery retrohale. Last 3rd still leather for me, a burnt toast and almond. Time was 1hr 15 another great smoke..!
I didn't think I was going to like this one, I'm not usually a fan of peppery and spicy cigars. Most cigars go a bit overboard for my tastes, but the wizards at Rebellion balanced it perfectly all the way through to the nub. Flavour notes I got were hay, light wood, a hint of chocolate, creamy nut like almond or cashew with some leather coming in the second 3rd. Time was about 1hr 20 and a stonking great smoke. Adding to my favourites!
Just tried my first Rebellion last night: You Shook Me All Night Long and it did. A terrific, chewy stick with a perfect burn and draw all the way. Flavours of leather, florals, woods, a bit of citrus & a surprising chocolate chip cookie note that made the finish so enjoyable. If you haven't had tried it, get into the spirit of Rebellion!
MINI REVIEW - ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ Rebellion Cigars. What an excellent smoke that I truly enjoyed. Fantastic construction on this 52 gauge 5inch long cigar. Even when I took it out of the wrapper I could smell its nutty and leathery aroma. Its wrapper is Ecuador Habano, Brazilian binder and the filler is a mixture of Dominican Republic, Panama and Nicaragua. The draw was flawless not to tight not to loose, its burn was superb and the ash held on nicely keeping it at a good temperature throughout the smoking experience. It was absolutely consistent from start to finish. One of the main things I liked about this was the slight peppery and leathery notes were not overbearing and it therefore gave a chance for the lovely nutty flavours to come through at a perfect balance. I even got a lovely taste of what in all honesty I could say chocolate chip with an taste of sweet cookie dough; also a slight hint of marzipan. The flavours were complex enough to satisfy anyone into medium cigars. It also was creamy and very satisfying on the palate. I easily got over 1 hour 45 minutes from this delightful cigar and would highly recommend it. Taking everything into consideration, I would definitely give this excellent smoke 9/10 in my Humble Opinion.
Wow. One of my favourites. Not too spicy/peppery and with a beautiful smooth creamy, slightly sweet/chocolatey finish from beginning to end. No nasty aftertaste just sit back and enjoy every mouthful from beginning to end. I’m going to make sure my humidor has a few of these in it.

Its a spicy/peppery, light wood cigar with a touch of almond on finish. You're gonna get lots of leather, and a bit of pepper as you enjoy this beauty.
