Upon review of the Griffins Special Edition 2011 cigars, people boasted of the flavors first. It is an innovating change in the tastes available through the smoke. Initially, the stogie starts off with a creamy smoke. It tastes of wood, with caramel and pepper undertones. The tastes are more intense when compared to the company’s usual cigars. The pepper gradually dies down, though it does not disappear until the final third. In the first third, it mixes with a buttery toast and sweet tea taste. The sweet tea often comes as a shock, though it is a welcome change of pace. About halfway through, one reported the change to a medium to full bodied stogie of wooden flavorings. In the final third, once the red pepper dissipates, a smooth vanilla flavor seeps through. A creamy smoke follows with caramel, chocolate, and tea. The stogie seems to be complex with many layers of transitions, each one blending into the next one effortlessly.
