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 Maduro Toro (6x52) The Flor de las Antillas Maduro 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 y Julieta Anejo Toro (6 x 54) Romeo Anejo by Romeo y Julieta was released to be a richer version of the classic Romeo y Julieta cigars.Bold and sophisticated, the Romeo Añejo is a rich-aged blend of the best-selling Romeo cigar. It pairs together the dark and oily broadleaf wrapper from a prized 2010 crop with a complex two-nation blend of 2008 and 2009 vintage binder and filler tobaccos. Together, this blend fills the palate with a rich and robust, full body smoke featuring heavenly notes of coffee and dark chocolate.

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.
