CIGAR OF THE DAY: Camacho Criollo Toro
The full flavor without the full throttle!
This medium bodied smoke has Camacho written all over it. The Criollo wrapper leaf sees extra sun rays, so it packs an extra pop of spice to compliment a mellow sweetness.
Camacho has always been regarded as a brand that rivaled the best of Cuban cigars, both past and present. The Camacho Criollo is a spin on the taste profile of modern day Cuban cigars. Sporting a Honduran-grown, fourth-priming wrapper packed with unique, peppery flavor. While the Criollo is dialed back a degree in intensity, it delivers a powerful burst of signature Camacho taste.
To take this blend to the next level, Dominican-grown Piloto Cubano was added to the filler. Giving this bad boy a well-rounded and balanced temperament. The spice of the Criollo leaf is intense, while the Piloto Cubano help ignite the sweetness receptors on the palette. The result is a complex, mid-intensity cigar!
CIGAR OF THE DAY: Arturo Fuente Anejo #60
The Holiday Season is officially here! A great way to kick-off the season is with the Arturo Fuente Anejo!
In September of 1998, Hurricane Georges tore through the Caribbean Sea causing widespread destruction throughout the region, including the famous Chateau de la Fuente farm in the Dominican Republic, where the wrapper leaf for the acclaimed Fuente Fuente Opus X cigar is grown and harvested.
Two years later the storm’s destruction resulted in a shortage of Fuente Fuente Opus X wrapper tobacco. Rather than halting production, Carlos Fuente Jr. ordered the use of a different wrapper, an aged Connecticut Broadleaf. Once again, the Fuente Family forged triumph from tragedy, and the Arturo Fuente Anejo was born.
One of the world’s most rare cigars, the Anejo cigar is rolled with the very best Dominican filler and binder from Chateau de la Fuente, then adds a five year old Connecticut maduro wrapper aged in a Cognac barrel. This blend yields a rich, spicy, slightly sweet smoke and the unique aging process leaves a distinct finish!
