BG Meyer Standard Issue Churchill is a 7 inch by 48 ring cigar. You may be asking yourself just who in the world is The BG Meyer Cigar Company and what is the deal with their new Standard Issue cigar? At the same time, it’s worth considering whether the answers really matter when the stogie in question is a quality Habano-wrapped Nicaraguan puro stuffed to the gills with Corojo ’99 from Esteli and Ometepe, some of which have been aged a full 8 years. Since the pedigree shouldn’t matter for such a quality cigar, it’s just gravy that BG Meyer is actually a division of Camacho and is helmed by Hollywood director, producer, and writer Rob Weiss who sits on Camacho’s ‘Board of the Bold’. Together these forces have created your next favorite cigar.
The translucent parchment sheath stretching from the foot band to midway up the cigar offers some words of wisdom for the smoker to consider while clipping the well-applied cap and tasting hints of cinnamon spice in the cold draw. Small puffs of cedar-scented smoke released while the foot is toasted offer tantalizing hints of the tastes to come, with a rich woodiness blooming during the first long pulls after lighting. Primarily infused with a dark earthiness, the flavors of a slow burning Standard Issue often veer into impressions more of cocoa or coffee with a better than average chance of finding hints of sweet vanilla cream throughout the last two-thirds of the cigar.
Now that you should be feeling more comfortable with the origins of the BG Meyer Standard Issue cigar, it’s time to get really comfortable. As in it’s time to sit back with your feet up, with a heavy glass in your hand and time for yourself to reflect and enjoy this medium-full bodied treat. Or invite some rowdy friends over to burn through a box while recreating your college garage band days. That works just as well.
