Ezra Zion Tantrum Review

The Label Factor:

The Ezra Zion brand is one which I had been dying to try for quite some time. A lot of that had to do with the awesome labels they’ve designed for their cigars.

I imagine a competition in the offices of Joya de Nicaragua to name this cigar. The guy who wanted to call it the Fuerte was probably pissed at that new girl in accounting who came up with Doble Fuerte.
