Big personality, BG Meyer Gigantes.
Running amuck in the industry the past couple years, the Board of the Bold (Mike Ditka, Matt Booth, and Rob Weiss) have dished out a gaggle of top-tiered blends. This powerhouse conglomerate prides themselves on delivering cigars of the utmost intensity and character, and the newest release from Rob Weiss’ BG Meyer line is as intense as they come. Crafted to pay homage to the pioneers of bold character, people who dared to speak their minds when no one else would, has a character of its own that can easily go toe to toe with the strongest personalities on the planet.
Packing a combined age of over 20 years, the tobaccos utilized in this masterpiece are as refined as they come. Gigantes features a dark chocolate-colored, oily Nicaraguan Habano wrapper leaf cultivated in 2007. Underneath, this concoction boasts a Brazilian Mata Fina binder aged for a minimum of 6 years which hugs vintage Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers also with at least 6 years of aged behind them. Medium to full-bodied, bold notes of black pepper, licorice, and a lingering sweet spice are all noticeable with a hint of leather sneaking in on the back of the palate. Make time for this blend because it is sure to grab your full attention.
BG Meyer Gigantes received a well-deserved 90-rating noting: "Packed solid with tobacco, this Churchill has a firm draw but delivers plenty of sugary sweet notes that range from malted chocolate to toasted almonds. It's balanced by notes of black pepper and oak."
