Who is this Edgar Hoill name that has been buzzing through the grape vine? This is a good question if you are just finding out about this brand. Edgar Hoill is a world renowned photographer whose cutting edge photography of “more than unusual” urban surroundings has earned him the nickname “O.S.O.K. aka One Shot One Kill”. His shots are powerful, the messages he conveys are heart-felt, and when it comes to breaking the barriers to the most exclusive individuals and lifestyles, Edgar is there to capture the true essence of each setting. Edgar “One Shot One Kill” Hoill has now returned to the cigar business in the form of “Edgar Hoill Cigars”, a new company in association with Christian Eiroa. Available in three unique vitolas, EH Cigars' debut line is a complex and full-bodied Nicaraguan puro.
The first in the Edgar Hoill line is the ‘Cultura’. A pyramid style (or trompeta) shaped cigar. Each one of these unique cigars in the Edgar Hoill line come individually wrapped in a ‘white tissue like’ paper with a spider and spider web embossed across the entire sheet. The Edgar Hoill Cultura is a big ring gauge cigar from the foot and winds down by the time you finish. The Cultura sports a Nicaraguan wrapper and binder along with a special blend of Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. The wrapper itself has a beautiful dark chocolate hue and a light oily finish. The flavors are that of cedar, light pepper, sweet chocolate truffle and subtle woody notes to give it a wide range of complex flavors.
The second line in the Edgar Hoill series is the ‘Vida’. A Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper engulfs this perfecto cigar, using Nicaraguan binders and fillers. The cigar itself is thick in all the right places and is a full bodied Nicaraguan Puro with a multiplex array of flavors and aromas that literally gives ‘Vida’ to the cigar aficionado. As Edgar Hoill himself would describe it, The Vida gives a corresponding state, existence or principle of existence conceived of as belonging to the soul.
The last cigar featured is the Edgar Hoill ‘Passion’, a strong and barely controllable emotion. It is the object of such love or desire. The EH Passion an all Nicaraguan binder, filler, and wrapper combination. It has a light cocoa colored hue with minimal veins and a slight oily finish. The flavors consist of earth, oak, notes of coffee and even subtle hints of red pepper. It’s a uniquely flavored cigar no doubt.
As an amateur photographer, Edgar started over a decade ago capturing the beauty he found in what others would consider horrific or less than appropriate living conditions. From gangland imagery in the poverty ridden streets of Los Angeles to the high-profile organized crime bosses of the Yakuza in Japan, Edgar has seen, experience and captured what others only watch in movies. He has conveyed that same awe, excitement, and life with passion into his new line of cigars.
