Earlier this year, Logan & I attended the CATS Festival in San Antonio, TX. At one of the many booths set up there, I was given a few cigars from Outlaw Cigar Co. Including a couple Black Powders and this WTF. So, this particular cigar has been resting for 207 days. ;)

The WTF has a very nice appearance. Smooth dark chocolate wrapper, with a “soft” box press. It almost looks like an oval. Smooth pressed seams & veins. It has a subtly sweet smell, with a cold draw of a sweet woodiness.

 

The first third is nutty, with a very slight spice on the background. I keep getting hits of smokiness. The burn is very straight and I haven’t found the need for touch-ups. The smoke production is nothing crazy, but it is plentiful.

 

The second third of the WTF loses the spice, and the nuttiness intensifies. There is a lot of smokey wood weaving in and out. The burn continues to be smooth and consistent, with about a medium amount of smoke.

 

One of the first things I noticed about the WTF in the final third, was how the ash turned into a dark grey and black color, with a texture similar to that of more charcoal ash. Then I noticed that the smoke and flavor of the cigar became very dry, but the flavors remained similar to the second third. The smoke production really picked up, just before the band.

 

It was an interesting smoke. It wasn’t completely within my flavor profile, but I did enjoy it. And I enjoyed smoking a cigar with “WTF” boldly written on the band. :)

Sounds like a good one! Their Bad To The Bone cigar is great too, if you get a chance to try that one

Haven't had that one yet, but I did like the Gunslinger Black Powder. Not a bad lineup at all so far. :)

Yes I am 12 and cant stop laughing at it being called WTF

LOL. I hear the Black Powder is great too. Will have to check them both out for sure

Haven't had the pleasure of WTF, but a lot of Ken's flavors tend toward woodiness, as I have referred to the Black Powder as possibly the best campfire smoke ever. The Bad to the Bone was their first house blend, and was Dominican, as opposed to the new Gunslinger lines that are Nicaraguan. Lots of wood and pepper in the black powder, without a lot of sweetness. I will need to try this one someday, as well as their other stick, simply named 13. Ken makes good cigars and runs a world class lounge. Can't beat it.
