Wise Blood is a mild-to-medium bodied, delicately balanced cigar, carrying sweet almond notes, with hints of lemon zest that delight the palate and reward a patient smoker.
Its name inspired by the first novel of famed Georgia author Flannery O’Connor, Wise Blood invites a reflective smoking experience, encouraging an attention to nuance and an appreciation of the harmony of a balanced blend.
O’Connor’s novel, and the cigar’s namesake, tells the story of a Southern veteran in the mid-20th century, a man of deep faith who struggles to reconcile his convictions with his lived experience. His pursuit of truth leads him on a journey through religious innovation, unfamiliar associations, and physical and emotional exhaustion in the gritty streets of a mid-sized Southern town. The novel’s complexity is no less satisfying than it is redemptive; in other words, it was a book made to be enjoyed in the presence of fine tobacco.
Wise Blood is the third ATL cigar created in partnership with Master Blender Luciano Meirelles (Fiat Lux, Luciano The Dreamer, Maria Lucia, and many others) and is the first ATL cigar to be produced and distributed exclusively through Meirelles’ new vertically-integrated company, Luciano Cigars.
