ru - in - a - tion [roo-uh-ney-shuh-n]
-noun
1. the act or state of ruining or the state of being ruined.
2. something that ruins.

Strap on your bike helmets gents. Behold, Man O’ War Ruination, a supremely flavorful handmade offering superior layers of bold, Cuban-esque flavors balanced by velvety smoothness that pours forth with raw spirit and intensity. Ample flavor abounds, driven by its bold mixture of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan and Honduran long-leaf ligeros. These hand-selected tobaccos have been picked from the plant's highest priming, bringing maximum flavor and richness. To conceal this deep, dense blend of tobaccos, an oily Habano Ecuador ligero leaf was chosen as its wrapper - one that's thick and juicy, even outshining the flavorful core within. An explosion of spice greets you up front, as Ruination deliquesces into softer notes of oak, earth, toast, wood, and leather. The velvety smoke coats the palate, leaving a long and satisfying finish filled with the wonderful lingering aroma of toast and charcoal. Toward the nub the roller-coaster continues....closing with a concentrated, layered, full-bodied finale. Nothing short of a religious experience!

It's bit, it's bold, it's going to be your best friend for the two hours you will spend savoring this cigar. It's not for everybody, especially newbies, you gotta work up to this this kind of pleasure, but well worth the effort. Construction is solid, burn is even, and smoke is more than plentiful. I keep these in my humidor for those days when I feel I deserve a treat.

Recieved theses as a freebie. Great smoke output. Would work best after a meal,due to their strength. The bulk of flavor is dark roast coffee, cedar, and leather. I would consider a conversation on purchasing Ruination cigars.

These sticks are very well made. They have a nice draw and burn slowly and evenly. If you let them set out a bit the strength picks up. Definitely will be keeping these in my humidor,

The cigar draws well, ocassionally canoes. The Honduran ligero gives an overwhelming peppery taste. Not one of AJ Fernandez’s best in my book.

I bought a five pack of these, big mistake, i should have bought more., You can feel its high quality, construction, but its burn and draw prove it. As for taste it is both sweet and spicy while remaining smooth and creamy. My only other regret is after trying amd loving it ,is having to fit it into my daily repertoire. i

Man O' War Ruination

Keith

Man O’ War Ruination. Oh yes. This holy cocktail of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan and Honduran long-leaf ligeros along with Habano Ecuador ligero leaf is a veritable powderkeg. Ligeros are the tobacco plant’s highest priming (the leaves on the top of the plant). This means more sun exposure which in turn leads to maximum strength and robust flavor. And since Man O’ War Ruination features both ligero filler and wrapper, I braced myself for a searing, flavor-packed powerhouse. It delivered…and then some.

Pre-Light: gorgeous. In the hand it’s a weighty, firmly packed stick with an impressive looking wrapper that’s deep brown in color and shimmering with natural oils. Even pressing the foot of the cigar to the nostrils yields an enticingly fragrant aroma. See it, touch it, smell it….you’ll know what I’m talking about son.

Strength: the power is all consuming and noticeable the instant you spark it up. An intensely heavy smoke along with a bold accumulation of spice and pepper characterize the first inch or so, but it mellows a bit from there. It never loses its zesty character – not by a long shot – but the strength settles to a point where it’s balanced and downright addictive.

Flavor Profile: strength aside, Ruination is no one trick pony. When the dust settles after the first inch, Ruination’s brilliant array of flavors take center stage. Its distinguished profile is characterized by notes of cedar, espresso, leather, spices and a long, toasty finish. MOW Ruination’s most cherished characteristic is balance. Just when the intensity teeters on overbearing, it settles into a smooth smoke brimming with flavor – and then the cycle repeats. Considering its complex and disarming multi-layered flavors and constantly shifting roller coaster of taste and strength, this blend is the complete package.

Conclusion: for dudes seeking strength, complexity and flavor all rolled into one tidy package – your search has ended. Man O’ War Ruination is the pinnacle of the cigar blending craft. A tad pricey fellas, but this is worth every penny.
