Partagas Black Label Clasico (5 ¼ x 54) Grown in the subtropical climate of Cameroon on the west coast of Africa, Partagas wrappers are unequaled in their rich flavor. To complement their special character, the binders are grown in the famed San Andres Valley of Mexico. The flavorful blend consists of select tobaccos grown in the Dominican Republic and Mexico.
Montecristo Pilotico Toro (6 ¼ x 52). The cigars feature a rare Dominican Pilotico seed that has been rebirthed by Pepe Mendez’s family-owned operation, Jose Mendez & Company, and the Grupo de Maestros. This rare and prized tobacco is the result of the very special relationship they have. The Dominican Pilotico’s complex and robust smoke features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Dominican binder, and both Nicaraguan and Dominican Pilotico filler, all of which give this cigar a nutty, leathery, and sweet-tasting profile, as well as a robust aroma and a slow burn that aficionados can truly savor and appreciate.
Cohiba Black Robusto (5 x 50). The Cohiba Black production is made of tobacco from several countries, including the state of Connecticut - for the wrapper, the Dominican Republic - for the binder and filler and Mexico - for the complex blend. The Cohiba Black delivers an indulgent smoking experience with all the richness and balance of the original Cohiba line. Cohiba Black features a well-fermented Connecticut broadleaf wrapper that gives the cigar its espresso black color. The filler is a blend of Dominican and Mexican tobaccos surrounded by an aged Dominican Piloto binder. This make Cohiba Black a perfectly balanced smooth cigars with robust flavors. The dark, oily, maduro wrapper is smooth and silky to the touch but deliver a powerful flavor as you smoke the cigar and, together with the sun-grown, extra aged, Dominican ligero (the leaves mature in the burn for one year and 3 more in stock piles) each Cohiba Black delivers a balanced, rich and heavenly flavors.
H. Upmann by AJ Fernandez Toro (6 x 54) AJ Fernandez, master-blender extraordinaire, puts his spin on a legendary label with the H. Upmann by AJ Fernandez Cigar. Following in the footsteps of his other Heritage lines, this H. Upmann smoke features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Nicaraguan Corojo ’99 binder and a blend of Nicaragua (Criollo ’98) and Dominican Republic (Piloto Cubano) filler. The result is a rich and smoky sweetness, featuring hearty notes of cedar, dark roast coffee, hazelnut, and hints of cabinet spice.
Avo Syncro Nicaragua AVO Syncro Nicaragua is a four-vitola release and it draws the inspiration from the idea of synchronizing Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco, similar to synchronizing different instruments to create music. The blend uses a darker Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Dominican binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua’s Ometepe and Olancho, Peru. AVO Syncro Nicaragua starts stimulating the back area of the palate with complex spicy and peppery flavours evoking a wild character at the beginning due to the pronounced Nicaraguan and Peruvian filler tobacco.
