Isabela Cigar Company is releasing our first Ltd Edition of 2022:
The Mammoth 660 PepperHead.
It is based upon our extremely popular “Mammoth” larger gauge portfolio. The Mammoth 660 is a ‘more accessible’ 6 x 60 vitola with a hopped up blend of higher priming tobaccos.
It is designed to give the Mammoth some extra punch and more transitions.
We blended the 660 to reveal ever-changing flavor profiles of honeys, vanillas, chili-peppers and spices.
It has 2+ years of post-production aging in order to take a slight edge off the spices so that it will enhance an exotic journey of spinning flavor changes!
MSRP is $12.95
Total production is 2000 cigars
Available at All Official Isabela Retailers. A list is available at the Isabela Cigar Co. website.
We had many many requests over the years for larger gauge cigars.
As I mentioned upon release of the Mammoth 770 and 880 last year, the large gauge sticks were probably one of the most difficult blends that would meet my standards. We wanted a large vitola to reflect our identity of multiple transitions.
We also wanted to craft a blend that would not require extensive post production aging; and we were able to accomplish that with the 770 and 880.
We also wanted to have a “Sizzler” available in the Mammoth line…a blend that went much further with depth of flavors and a slew of transitions, so we blended the Mammoth 660 in what we call our “PepperHead” format.
It has the barber pole wrapper with a bigger baseline for the Nicaraguan Habano Prieto wrapper and a smaller Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. Plus, we added higher priming binder and fillers.
We wanted to release all 3 at the same time, so we blended and produced the 660s over 2 years ago, let them age for a year, and then crafted the 770s and 880s.
When our tentative release schedule for the Mammoths arrived, the 660 was still not quite where we wanted it to be. We needed far more flavor reveals, so we held it back and only released the 770 and 880 in 2021
Finally, the 660 is ready…so here we go!!
