Posts Tagged ‘OSOK’
My man main Matt Boofy is back (Not that he went anywhere) with the release of another stellar line of cigars called the OSOK or better know to our military snipers as One Shot One Kill. The OSOK has a Ecuadorian Habano wrapper with Honduran binders and a mix of Honduran and Dominican fillers. The foot is reminiscent of a Salomon. Room 101 marketing head Dylan Austin explained that the entire OSOK production is being made by one man rolling about 3000 cigars a month (100 a day) the production will consist of 30,000 cigars of only 1000 boxes of each size. The cigar for today’s short review was the Filero a 52 x 42 vitola, all cigars in the line have a beautiful black and silver band that’s wrapped in tissue paper with another outer wrap that adorns a skull and tribal art work reminiscent of Room 101 jewelry that Matt produces and that he gained inspiration from being in the far East during his military service. Like the original lines from Room 101 cigars including Namakubi and the one that’s on my top 5 list the Conjura the OSOK did not disappoint. Toasting my Salomon shaped foot I was treated to spice right off bat but as I got to cruise control burn the cigar was full of pepper and had nuances of leather, earth and wood I was also getting short blasts of nicotine that seems to be the signature flavor I have grown to love from Room 101. This was a wonderful cigar that was in the medium to full range that was very complex and extremely well blended. Well done Matt.
Cigar Rabbi: “Starts off with leather and pepper that intensifies as the cigar progresses, I also got wood”
Ed: “The initial few puffs were amazing and had a slight hint of wood and leather. A bit into it spice became more prominent, but always keeping a slight hint of wood the duration of the cigar. An enjoyable medium bodied smoke that was well constructed and held a nice tight ash all the way to the end”
