Boilermaker by Cigar Federation Factory Direct Boutique

9 months later…

The Boilermaker cigar by Cigar Federation is a beautifully constructed and beautiful looking cigar with its dark deep rich oily mottled wrapper and hefty to the touch too this thing is heavy; this can only mean one thing… this is stuffed full of tobacco.

Once lit, earthy coffee and cocoa are welcoming me in to enjoy this cigar. Expectedly, the draw is a bit tight, so we’ll see how she plays out. The retrohale is mild to non-existent at this point. No worries.

At the halfway point, the flavors are creamy and smooth through a snug draw. I might take a toothpick to this to see if will help and to avoid my cramping jaw. On the retrohale, I’m getting a mild cocoa and leather ride.

At the last third, the flavors have become deeper and richer with a mild retrohale that reinforces the creamy flavors I mentioned above.

Wow, the toothpick trick worked. I can now receive mouthfuls of smoke without working out my cheeks on every draw… #SakamotoHappy.

The Boilermaker cigar by Cigar Federation is a cigar that I think I’ll be paying more attention to. I’ve got a couple left and I’ll probably invest in another 5-pack just to have them around. These dandies certainly fulfill a needy craving.

Stay Smoky
Stay Chill

This was an odd experience. My first time with a Cigar Federation cigar with a cracked wrapper, so I won’t count this one.
