La Galera 1936 Box Pressed El Lector Toro (6x54) “La Galera” means “roller’s room” in Spanish, Jose “Jochy” Blanco is double booking the dedications by also paying homage to the year his factory was founded. A medium to full bodied cigar, the La Galera 1936 is a Dominican Puro that features a Habano wrapper and a blend of Criollo 98 and Piloto Cubano long-filler tobaccos. The blend of tobaccos produces a powerful and aromatic smoke, with notes of fruit, caramel, cocoa and cinnamon, and a heavy red pepper that is powerful and potent.
Flor de Las Antillas The Flor de las Antillas is a box-pressed cigar made by My Father Cigars in Esteli, Nicaragua. The blend includes a sun-grown wrapper harvested from the "Las Maria" farm owned by the Garcia family. Once you light up this cigar, you'll enjoy the delicious notes of espresso, woodsy, spice, dried fruit, oak, and creaminess.
Avo Syncro Nicaragua Toro (6 x 54) 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.
Romeo San Andres Toro (6 x 54) The very first Romeo Y Julieta to use a wrapper of Mexican origin, the San Andres Cigar is another knockout cigar that is born out of collaboration with cigar legends AJ Fernandez and Master-Blender Raphael Nodal of Aging Room fame. The hero of this revolutionary cigar is clearly the dark and dreamy eponymous Mexican wrapper, surrounding a blend of tasty Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos nestled in a spicy Nicaraguan binder. The Romeo San Andrés, the 5th entry in to the Romeo by Romeo Y Julieta line, is a well-balanced and robust cigar, full of complex flavors and a scent that is truly unique and immensely aromatic.
Aj Fernandez Gispert Intenso Toro (6 x 50) Altadis USA gave the daunting task to master-blender AJ Fernandez, and he gave us the impressive Gispert Intenso. Dark and full-bodied, everything about this cigar screams intensity, from the bold design of the box to the dark and inviting wrapper on each stick. Intenso is the first Gispert to be made in Nicaragua, and features a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Nicaraguan criollo 98 binder and a blend Nicaragua Criollo 98 and Piloto Cubano Dominican Fillers. This blend brings together notes of chocolate, earth, coffee, cinnamon, oak, leather and sweet spice
