Alan Rubin took a huge risk creating the MAXX line. At the time, traditional, smaller ring gauge cigars were en vogue. As an innovator, he wanted to buck the trend. His challenge was to create a line of large cigars with maximum flavour and satisfaction at a great value. For MAXX to be a success, the flavour needed to wow the palate. By using tobaccos from five different countries in a large format cigar, he was able to create balance, sweetness and complexity. Sometimes, bigger is better. And the Freak is a big cigar; it’s size is 6 3/8 x 60! Note: these are now shipping in plain packaging.
