LeRoy Neiman 2023 Collector’s Edition by J.C. Newman Cigar Company

03/22/2024
Today was my first time with this luxury cigar… the LeRoy Neiman 2023 Collector’s Edition by J.C. Newman Cigar Company.

Here we go:
The First Third greets me with creamy cedar, earthy tobacco flavors of dark cocoa, and subtle leather. The draw is perfect and effortless.

As I amble through the first third, leather tobacco flavors become more dominant but not overpowering… I think that the FSB (Florida Sun Grown) binder is providing this deliciousness.

The Second Third:
The tobacco flavors evolve… earthy cocoa, with a dash of black pepper, cedar, and leather… this is humming along beautifully. The retrohale? Pepper, pepper, pepper.

The Final Third:
I don’t want this to end. The flavors crescendo—dark chocolate, espresso, and delicious leather. The wrapper, now fully expressive, adds a gentle sweetness. That’s the LeRoy Neiman 2023 Collector’s Edition—a standing ovation in smoke form. I can’t wait to smoke this again.
