Tasting Notes

For Flatbushers, this name must conjure warm feelings of a quaint neighbourhood beautifully lined with homes and parks. Whether used as a cigar company name or to represent the people of this unique portion of the world, Flatbush is synonymous with art, diversity, flavour, commingling, uniqueness, and symphony.

Just to enlighten you, there’s a new kid on the block or should I say on the stoop. Flatbush Tobacco Company conceived of Gotham Cigars is the new talk of the town and for many reasons. Let’s find out what that’s about.

About Flatbush Tobacco Company

Flatbush is a rather interesting name for a Cigar Company, wouldn’t you say? But such is the uniqueness of the brand, the story, the founder, and the flavour profile! Flatbush Tobacco Company is owned by Gotham Cigars, the largest online purveyor of cigars in the United States. Over 20 years ago, Gotham Cigars’ founder and president, Manny Balani was having a meeting in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn. The result of the tête-à-tête complimented by rum and cigars was the birth of Gotham Cigars.

“The story behind the story of Flatbush Cigar Company is that a conversation that I was having about the cigar business many years ago while in Flatbush generated the idea that has become Gotham Cigars. I have always known that I wanted to honor that meeting, and one of my favorite areas in Brooklyn, with a cigar…and now here it is. These are really fantastic cigars that are affordable. We look forward to introducing them to the market, and following that up with a few other creative ideas we have planned for the Flatbush Cigar Company”, says Manny Balani, owner and President of Gotham Cigars.

The cigars under Flatbush Tobacco Company embody the stalwart and assiduous character of the people of Flatbush area in Central Brooklyn. With premium, aged, stand-alone profiles, these cigars aim to offer a deeply satisfying experience at pocket-considerate prices. All Flatbush Tobacco Company cigars are rolled at Best Cigars S.A. in Esteli, Nicaragua.

Flatbush Tobacco Company Blends

The launch of Flatbush Tobacco Company comes with the release of three cigars: Yellow CabThe Doorman, and Stoop 526. These are the premier smokes under the Flatbush Tobacco Company. As a sneak peek, here is what to expect from these three stogies.

Yellow Cab: Blend and Flavour Notes

Flatbush Yellow Cab Gordo

This is the mild to medium offing. Yellow Cab is a beautiful toasty blonde cigar flaunting an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. It utilises a Nicaraguan Habano binder and choice pickings from Condega and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua as filler. The result is a pleasant light-tan stick full of flavour. The sweetness is so potent on this cigar that you can taste it right from the cold draw. Coffee, cedar, and toasty hay waft off the shaft. It’s a solid cigar, well constructed with a flawless double cap.

The billows of aromatic smoke are difficult to miss. The smoke smells like hay on a hot afternoon, sweet with a little nutty chip on the shoulder. True to the cold draw, this smoke offers a sweet, toasty, and creamy profile with coffee, baking spice, white pepper, cedar, and leather being especially dominant. A long buttery finish drags on to the next draw.

Maturer notes of light spices, cedar, coffee, almonds, leather, and toasted bread take over in the mid section. The coffee is roasted, almonds are more like cashews, and the spices are more like white pepper towards the beginning of the final third.

Overall, the cigar is still supremely sweet, rich, and creamy with a surprising hint of citrus tang. The finish is still extremely long and pleasant, filling your mouth with an aromatic cottony feel.

Towards the nub, the medium body is a little strong. Maybe stronger than some mild-loving botl and sotl would like. All the flavours amp up to close on a high. Sweet roasted coffee, warm creamy nuts, cedar, leather, toasted bread, light citrus zing, and a warm, sweet, spicy, toasty, earthy long finish.

Yellow Cab is ideal for those who love a mild to medium smoke. It’s easy, toasty, and spicey without being overwhelming, But it’s also a little strong, which may be one of the unique qualities about it. It comes in three vitolas: Toro (6 x 52)Gordo (6 x 60), and Churchill (7 x 50).
