There's a new sheriff in town.
Obsidian’s debut will not go unnoticed. It dares to be different, and in doing so, sets a new standard among premium handmades. The size listing is stacked – a slew of big-ring vitolas, figurados, and more. The blend is dark, meaty, and enticing, delivering a wealth of dense tobacco flavor in an unconventional format. Packed in chunky, Spanish cedar boxes, Obsidian’s most remarkable trait is the price. Premium quality and memorable flavor, all for a fee that’s most similar to an ordinary yard ‘gar. Literally, they would be a bargain at twice the price.
Check out Obsidian's resume:
- a rich, densely flavorful blend
- plenty of power, but a notable smoothness
- a specially tailored lineup of artisanal sizes
- prices starting at just $2.49 per stick
Obsidian employs a dark, oily Brazilian Habano ligero wrapper overtop a bold blend of Cuban-seed long-fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican, secured inside a spicy Criollo ’98 binder. The result is a densely rich and chewy blend, loaded with complex notes of espresso, pepper, earth, toast, and cream. Full-bodied, but extremely smooth and balanced, Obsidian is thoroughly great.
