Cigar News: Isabela Cigar Company Announces Release of PepperHead Mammoth LTD

Isabela Cigar Company is releasing the company’s first Ltd Edition of 2022 – the Mammoth 660 PepperHead! Based off of the company’s extremely popular “Mammoth” larger gouge portfolio, the Mammoth 660 is in a ‘more accessible” (6 x 60 vitola) with a hopped up blend of higher priming tobaccos. This tweak gives the smallest release in the Mammoth line some extra punch, and more transitions.

Blended to reveal ever-changing flavor profiles of honeys, vanillas, chili-peppers and spices the new PepperHead Mammoth went through 2+ years of post -production aging, to take the top off the spices, revealing an exotic journey of spinning flavor changes.

Johnny Piette, owner of Isabela Cigar Company noted:

“We had many many requests over the years for Larger Gauges Huge Gauges as I mentioned upon release of the Mammoth 770 and 880 last year…the large gauge stuff was probably one of the most difficult blends ever,,, to get such a large vitola to reflect our identity of multiple transitions….we also wanted to craft a blend that wouldn’t require extensive post production aging, and 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 more transitions, so we blended the Mammoth 660 in what we call our “PepperHead ” format, dual wrapper, with more of a baseline Nica Habano prieto wrapper, and a smaller Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper….with added higher priming binder and fillers…..

We wanted to release all 3 at the same time….so we blended and produced the 660s 2+ years ago, let them age for a year, 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, as far as the flavor reveals, so we held it back, and just released the 770 and 880., in 2021

Finally , the 660 is ready, so here we go !!”

The company notes that production will be limited to 2,000 cigars packaged in 25-count decorative boxes and have set the MSRP at $12.95/cigar. They are available at All Official Isabela Retailers , a list of which is available on the company website
