Jake Wyatt: Herbert Spencer Belicoso Cigars
Product Number: 007-908-0018
Prioritizing medium-bodied smokes marked by exceptional balance, delightful nuance, and overall smoothness, Jake Wyatt cigars are all hand-rolled at the Tabacalera JVM in Tamboril, Dominican Republic, showcasing exceptional tobaccos and often featuring subtle barber pole-like wrapper accents. The brand was founded in 2022 by Neil Garcia and Gerard Abajian and named after their two sons, Jake and Wyatt, with many of their blends drawing inspiration from the founders' previous experience in retail and professional sports and love for philosophy and literature.
The Herbert Spencer cigar is part of Jake Wyatt's regular-production core lineup, and its name is a tribute to the 19th century English philosopher who coined the phrase "survival of the fittest." The series draws specific inspiration from his quote, "There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all argument, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance. This principle is, contempt prior to examination." In summary, "Don't know something until you've tried." The Herbert Spencer line commemorates Spencer's influence on Garcia and Abajian's lives, and as a blend it showcases Dominican binder and fillers within a Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper accented with Ecuadorian Connecticut leaf. It's among Jake Wyatt's most robust blends, offering a medium- to full-bodied smoke.
