Latitude Zero Experimental

It’s alive!

Where would we be as a species if Sir Isaac Newton never had that apple fall on his head, or if Benjamin Franklin had decided, “No, I don’t feel like experimenting with my metal key and kite in this lightning storm tonight.” I for one certainly couldn’t even imagine, and that’s why I’m delighted to see that experiments are continuing to pay off. Latitude Zero Experimental Blend achieves something that no cigar maker has been able to do before by employing an Ecuadorian Cameroon wrapper leaf. Previous attempts to grow this temperamental leaf outside of Africa have all failed miserably, but you know what they say about trying and trying again. This exclusive, literally one-of-a-kind wrapper leaf hails from the fertile farms of Oliva Tobacco Company, and since it comes from a small and experimental crop, you’re not likely to see it again anytime soon. If you’re gonna try it, you better do it pronto.

Experimental Blend is a home run, and is poised to surpass even the original Latitude Zero core line, which would be no easy task. Graced with that extraordinary Ecuadorian Cameroon wrapper from 2009 that I was discussing earlier, the physical appearance sure is easy on the eyes. Underneath this fine cloak, a rare Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 binder from Oliva’s La Joya farm envelopes a mix of Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 long-fillers. Medium-bodied and brimming with nuances of cedar, sweet-spice, and oak, Latitude Zero Experimental Blend is one prize that you won’t want to let slip through the cracks. It’s quite simply a must-try.

This may be an Experimental, but if you like Cameroon wrappers, with a smooth even draw beginning to end this cigar is for you. This medium smoke will be on my list of best ever buys forever, or until the supply runs out. I truly hope this will become a regular production instead of experimental. This cigar is definitely on my Christmas wish list. Loved them.
Customer Testimonials
A good cigar, but not as good as the original Latitude Zero. The major problem I encountered is the 3 to 4 inch wide band on the cigar which can not be removed without destroying the delicately thin wrapper. Same result no matter whether you remove before lighting when cigar is cold or after lighting and letting burn line get close to band and cigar is warm which should soften the glue....
This is a great cigar, very smooth, creamy, nutty, and barely hits medium body. I really enjoyed this one. Unfortunately, the band is the only drawback. Like others mentioned, you have to be extremely careful when removing the band. Mine had too much glue, which resulted in me peeling a piece of leaf off the wrapper.
This was a phenomenal cigar. One of the few I have smoked down below the one inch mark. Note: I did have to use a small sharp knife to get the very large label off without damaging the leaf.
The smoke is dry on the tongue and palate and there is a metallic aftertaste to the smoke that I find off-putting. The comically large band is almost impossible to remove without damaging the fragile wrapper.
What a nice smoking cigar, for the most part. It smoked nicely with great flavor the whole way down. Though I usually prefer a more full cigar, this was very good for a medium. However, they need to rethink the wrapper as it was glued to the cigar and caused some damage upon removal, causing a weird burn in that area. Overall though, worth the smoke!
I got a 5-pack free when I bought a box of the regular Latitude Zero about 4 months ago. I've smoked two so far, (just finished one), and had no issue with the band sticking to the wrapper on either one. The cigar is good-looking, well constructed, draws nice and easy, and burns slowly and evenly. But to my taste, the flavor seems a bit off. I don't know if it's just the Ecuador instead of a true Cameroon wrapper, but it tastes "green" to me, as if it needs more aging. I think I will let the other three rest for a year or so and re-visit them then. But not to worry, I can still enjoy my go-to Cameroon smoke, the Black Pearl Moardo. A wonderfully flavorful and enjoyable cigar at an equally wonderful price at C. I. Very highly recommended. By the way, the regular Latitude Zero is also a very good cigar. You can read my review of it and the Morado, too.
I purchased 10 of these to give them a try. I've had 3 so far, and each and every time that humongous band has split the wrapper while taking it off. Not worth the trouble or frustration to keep this up. The cigar actually tastes good, but you have flaking, flaming ash to deal with when it gets to the torn wrapper sections.
Fantastic. Don't even waste your time with a 5 pack, just get a box. One thing against it, you have to be very careful taking off the band or you risk damaging that beautiful wrapper leaf.
This is a very fine medium-bodied smoke that has a slow even burn and just a hint of sweetness that complements the mellow oak from start to finish. I normally smoke medium to full-bodied cigars tending towards full but decided to try a 5-pack of this one. It will be an exception as long as it's available. My only complaint is the you must be careful taking off the paper wrapper band or it can damage the wrapper leaf...
The Latitude Zero Toro I smoked was interesting, the mild nuttiness of the Cameroon seed leaf and the more bright and spicy filler left me wondering what this cigar was trying to be. Complex, but not in a way I prefer, the flavors seemed incongruous and counterproductive. The draw, burn and construction was perfect and if you like these flavors together, you may like this cigar.
Without a doubt one of the finest most well balanced Cameroon wrappers, simply gorgeous. Hurry don't cheat yourself, get this one PDQ before I buy them all...outstanding cigar.
