I can't seem to find much information on it, but it's called Spectre. So far as I can tell, only CI and Cigar.com are selling them right now. What catches my eye is the description on CI. They use a "secret blend" of fillers (which is not really a selling point for me) but they say they are wholly unusual, and guaranteed to be extremely novel. Among the descriptors is, along with other things which are fairly run of the mill like black pepper, leather and cocoa, is "pine." Cigar.com mentions "smoked meat" among the flavors, and CI also describes it as "smokey." Now I've been saying for some time that I'd like to see a cigar or two blended with at least a portion of pipe tobacco. Apparently Drew Estate's "Natural" line does a little of this from time to time, but I've only tried limited samples of that brand, often considering it but generally steering clear. But these two descriptions have hit on some signals for me....Cigar.com makes a point of using "secret" in quotation marks, as if it isn't really that big a secret. What I take from this is that the "secret" ingredient will be apparent to people who have tasted it before. Based solely on the descriptions, my hunch is that this cigar may be just what I was hoping for. My suspicion is that the "secret" component of the blend may in fact be latakia - a radical break from traditional cigar blending, guaranteed to stand out, and offering a smokey, sometimes faintly meaty, flavor. The predominant ingredient in the smoke used to treat lat is pine smoke, and I've found a few latakia blends faintly piney from time to time. Cocoa, leather, and a little spice wouldn't seem out of place with a lat blend, either. This is just a wild guess, I haven't tried them. When I search google, I don't come across any reviews yet, and some cigar forum folks seem to be scared off by the suggestion of pine. So my question is: have any of you smoked these, and if so how were they? A followup: does my hunch sound reasonable to you? It would be unusual, sure, but it's said to be unusual after all. If this is correct, I'd be super interested in trying one. Boxes of ten are in the neighborhood of 50 bucks.
