AJ's personal, everyday blend.
We've visited AJ's factory many times and every time we've seen AJ smoking a corona-sized Habano-wrapped cigar with a shaggy foot. He's never told us the blend or what it was for. After constant questioning (he made the mistake of letting us try a few) he finally broke down and admitted he has his own special cigar made in a 5"x42 corona as his everyday personal smoke. Eventually, we convinced him to let us offer these to the Cigar.com faithful and thus, Man O' War Puro Authentico was born.
These spicy firecrackers are the same cigars AJ enjoys on a day to day basis and come unfinished with a shaggy foot. They contain a special blend of rich Nicaraguan long leaves that's topped with a maduro wrapper. Easily full-bodied, Puro Authentico are truly superb.
Handcrafted for your everyday enjoyment…
Released under the East India Trading Co. division of the illustrious Gurkha brand, these stunning handmades taste even better than they look. Yes, they do quite well in the looks department, and even more importantly, the price is very approachable, but what really puts these gems a cut above the rest is the impeccable construction and flavor that comes along for the ride. With Gurkha Hudson Bay, you get all the elaborate artwork this mega brand is known for while scoring one top-notch blend that you can enjoy each and everyday.
For Hudson Bay, Kaizad Hansotia utilizes well-aged Nicaraguan long-fillers from Esteli, Ometepe, and Condega and teams them up with a luscious, San Andres wrapper. The result is a smooth, medium-bodied delight with rich notes of cedar, spice, and pepper. It's a perfect balance, putting forth a nice kick in the flavor department while remaining cool and refined on the palate. So jump on the boat and discover all that Gurkha Hudson Bay has to offer. It's an experience you're sure to revisit often.
Obsidian remains one of the hottest cigars on the market.
Obsidian burst onto the scene with a black, full-sleeve band that instantly set itself apart from the competition. But we all know, the band doesn't make the blend and Abe Flores from Pinar del Rio ensures that the blend is top notch. Abe Flores has been making legendary blends for years now and has established himself as one of the premier Dominican manufacturers. Obsidian White Noise is just further proof of his ascent to the top of the cigar game.
Obsidian White Noise is not mild. Don't confuse the alabaster glow of the band with something that's light and airy. White Noise starts with a smooth, hearty Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The wrapper is seemingly dripping with oils and will get any enthusiast's palate salivating. The fillers from the Dominican and Nicaragua round the blend out and make for a medium to full-bodied blend loaded with notes of coffee, cashews, cedar, and light hints of vanilla on the finish. The original Obsidian established the brand's potential, Obsidian White Noise realizes that potential.
