A Dominican Puro grown from Vuelta Abajo, Cuban-seed.
Available in Habano or maduro options, Flores y Rodriguez Cabinet Seleccion cigars by Pinar del Rio are the super premiums in the PDR line.
Produced in a small factory in the Dominican Republic, Pinar del Rio cigars offer complex aromas and full-flavored characteristics that create a long-lasting finish. These are truly one of the Dominican's most flavorful cigars. This great-tasting line is a collaboration between PDR frontman Abe Flores and the famed Rodriguez brothers, who developed a medium to full-bodied Dominican experience that's rich with flavor and complexity.
Considered a Dominican puro, Flores y Rodriguez Cabinet Seleccion cigars contain Dominican Habano Vuelta Abajo long leaf filler tobaccos and sport either a Colorado Habano wrapper or a semi-sweet, oily maduro wrapper. This combination delivers wood notes mixed with cocoa and a hint of citrus on the finish. Smooth and elegant yet packed with heartiness, this is one Dominican that will thoroughly satisfy.
The name is a mouthful, but the cigar itself is perfect in size and construction. Medium-bodied, I chose this newcomer due to the fact it’s made in the DR — I’m trying more cigars from there to broaden my horizons. The smoke is very nice. Lots of complex nuances and a light spice helps this FyR hold up to a whiskey on the rocks.
