Enter the new boutique creation - Cult. Hey, I know what you're thinkin', meetings in the woods, weird rituals, dark cloaks, alien abductions, that sort of thing. But luckily, Cult cigars have nothing to do with any of that hoopla. Cult is carefully handcrafted in Esteli, Nicaragua, at the revered TACASA factory. This is a small boutique factory, known for producing top-notch handmades. As weird as Cult might sound, I assure you it's as legit as they come.
From the very first puff, Cult is different, and that's a good thing. Initial notes reveal a pleasant tea-like flavor, complemented by a gentle note of spice. As the burn progresses, notes of tobacco, leather, and cream enter the fray with a tick of sweetness on the finish. Each Cult produces thick velvety smoke, that is medium in body, and occasionally touches on medium to full. Due to its well-balanced blend, Cult is never overpowering, or unbalanced, and provides smooth soft flavors you can enjoy any time of day. Each Cult is packed with Nicaraguan long-fillers, and is hugged by a feisty Indonesian binder. The real icing on the cake is the velvety Ecuador Habano wrapper draped over the outside. Smooth and soft to the touch, each Cult looks and feels inviting, and is attractively packaged in eye-catching boxes. I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical of Cult at first, but once you try one, you’ll become a believer too.
Talk about attention to detail, this box is simply stunning! Each Cult comes perfectly packed in a gorgeous chest-style black box, complete with metal corner guards and accents, before being finished off in grand fashion with a Cult inscribed plate. Heck - even the hinges and clasp are well-done. This is one box worthy of collecting.
Nice mellow smoke, not too heavy on the spice. First one third held a beautiful solid ash, has a soft spot about half way in. Still a good smoke. My favorite is the box, nice crafted, beautiful box. I honestly bought these for the box, cigars were a bonus.

Got one of these at CigarFest 2015. While ring size is huge, smoke started off very nice with good taste and draw. Half way through the wrapper started coming apart. Not pleased with the construction.
