Not going to lie, I’m rather disappointed…..I really hoped SBC18 stood for Shad Bates’ Cigar 2018. As it turns out it is Surrounded by Champions. This cigar is a tribute to all that have had a hand in the success of Powstaine Cigars – top to bottom, front to back. The SBC is a solid medium plus that transitions to full in body and strength – it is a powerhouse! Flavors are complex (take your time and pay attention when smoking). Those flavors include pepper, espresso, dark chocolate, cream and a sugar cane sweetness. These are very limited production and an annual release – if I have them in stock I suggest you buy some, you won’t be disappointed!
