Isabela Release Limited Edition 2021 PepperHead Gordo
Johnny Piette and his band of merry men are at it again announcing their newest project at Isabela Cigars: The PepperHead Gordo. Piette stated only 2,500 of the limited-run cigars would be produced and feature a respectable MSRP of $10.95. The barberpole cigar will only be available in a single vitola: a standard gordo with a length of 6″ and 60 ring gauge.
Included in Isabela’s official May press release, John Piette stated, “For this release, we take you on a magical journey to far away lands, and their myriad of different exotic peppercorns and spices , a true “tour de force” of twisting, turning ever changing transitions of flavors. To effect the myriad of multiple reveals in this blend, we utilized multiple strains of different high-priming tobaccos, each of which was aged at different lengths before blending, with an additional 4+ years of post-production aging , to meld the tobaccos into a harmonious blend of many, many different flavor reveals, a true “ebb and flow” experience !”
The 2021 PepperHead Gordo is the second installment in the project originating at Isabela’s IMAGINE studio. The inaugural PepperHead launch focused on a corona vitola in 2019 and according to Piette was “highly rated.” He further mentions that the PepperHead Gordo was actually blended and produced along side the corona, but held the launch to allow for two additional years of aging due to it’s size. The PepperHead Gordo is now available at all official Isabela retailers. – In Fumo Pax!
