It's Zulu time.
Yes - that is a child holding a machine gun. But before you start writing your congressman, let me explain. Zulu Zulu cigars were once a private blend of George Rico, of Gran Habano. As part of his initiative to help raise awareness around the world on child soldiers, he released this cigar to the public on an extremely limited-edition scale. Each purchase made benefits the non-profit organization Invisible Children - a group that fights for children's rights through various media outlets. A great cigar for a great cause, now that's enjoyable.
Expertly crafted in Honduras, only 2,000 boxes are slated for total production. Each box is hand painted and signed by the Miami artist known as 'Kid'. Zulu Zulu is available in two equally impressive formats, both boasting ultra-premium tobaccos for a one of a kind experience. And once they're gone....they're gone.
- dressed in a seamless and silky Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, which hugs a well-rounded core of Nicaraguan long-fillers. The smoke is cool and creamy, as notes of cedar, natural sweetness, and a dash of pepper enter the fray. Starts off mild-bodied, and transitions toward mild to medium throughout.
- comes draped in a leathery and thick Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. This leaf houses a rich long-filler core of Nicaraguan tobaccos, producing a medium to full-bodied cigar brimming with notes of spice, leather, cinnamon, and a hint of sweetness.
