Biggest pepper bomb you've smoked?

I've probably asked this before but I couldn't find the thread. So what's the biggest pepper bomb cigar you've smoked that you can recall? This excludes artificially enhanced sticks like the punisher.

For me it's perdomo 2005 small batch maduro  (shocking yes but try the retro flame ball) 
and AJ new world that come to mind.

     For me it was the Tatuaje Fausto. It had some age on it too, but I couldn't finish that sucker. Spice bomb city. Mind you, I'm not a big spice/pepper fan like some guys.

    Diesel Wicked.  It just flat out burned on the retro.  I thought it was worse than the Punisher.

     Gurkha's Hellish nightmare, strait up eye watering, sinus destroying pepper blast. it took 2 days too recover from this. 6 out of 10 failure rate.

    The CAO LX2 was spicy foe most. As with many cigars the slower yiu smoke it the less spicy it was. So in my hands it wasn't . Haven't had those in years.
    DPG blue had some good spice notes. 
    Iduno.... I just smoke so damn slow...

    The LFD corajos were short spice bombs. I really should get more of them.

    I'll admit that I have a hard time labeling my flavors. 
    Spice and pepper are elusive labels for me to pin on cigars.
    It's hard for me to label any specific flavor.
    Usually it's just an up or down vote on the cigar for me.
      
    (That reminds me, I'm behind on those weekly reviews. I'll try to be more introspective towards my palate but you may still just get an up or down vote from me. LOL) 

    I don't consider myself a pepper fan. 
    But, I've enjoyed a few of these cigars that you guys are calling "pepper bombs"
    without telling myself they're too peppery.

    "artificially enhanced sticks like the punisher"
    And, what does this mean?  
    Somebody gimme the rundown on this.
     I have a punisher on hand so, fill me in. 
    Do they add cayenne pepper to the blend?
    What other sticks are "enhanced"? I've had a few sticks burn my lips as I was carrying them around in my mouth prior to cutting/lighting. Is that natural with some wrappers or are they "enhanced"?

    @Bob_Luken  Think sweetented cap, but with capsaicin. How do you think the get t to taste so spicy? 

    Recently, the viaje jalapeño.  It really does have some interesting pepper flavors.  I like the DPG Cuban classic for a peppery smoke.

    So, they do that?  I'm not that fond of it.  I'd rather just have tobacco.

    I'm not sure anyone has heard an official word on it, but it seems to be the consensus.  I would challenge anyone who says it's just the tobacco they use.  After smoking a few, there's just no way that is only tobacco.

    I know the spice sensation that you are referring to on other cigars, and i think it's totally different than this one and a normal occurance.

    MOW Little Devil… It's very similar to the Puro Authentico but with a lot more spice.

    Gotta agree with this one, although I think the Oliva Serie O #4 would surprise a lot of people too. Way more pepper than any other Oliva I've smoked. Something about that size must bring out the pepper notes in a cigar.

    Hatuey cigars (local B&M) has more pepper in there sticks than anything I've ever tried. There have been a couple that made me tear up. One bit so bad I couldn't smoke for a couple days afterwards.
