Spotlight Brand: Kristoff Maduro

Kristoff Maduro

An elite Cuban taste.

Hailing from the Dominican Republic, Kristoff is a super premium cigar that competes with the likes of Arturo Fuente, Davidoff, and Graycliff. The company only employs the most qualified Cuban master blenders, all who have generations of experience in cigar making.

This is one super elegant maduro! Packed full of Cuban-seed Dominican and Nicaraguan long leaves, all masked with a Cuban-seed Dominican Olor binder, Kristoff Maduro creates a phenomenally balanced bouquet of crisp, clean flavors that melt into your palate like butter on a hot plate. With a premium Brazilian maduro wrapper on the surface, you'll find yourself engulfed in rich, floral smoke as the blend burns absolutely perfectly.

Upon first puff you're met with earth and toasted almonds. The blend then transitions into a medium body as light hints of spice make their way through your senses. With a hearty flavor, a smooth finish, and some sweet notes that bring relief from some of the spice, Kristoff Maduro will please the most discerning aficionados.

Q & A: Cigars Inside?

Q.
I like to enjoy cigars inside my home but my wife obviously doesn't appreciate it. Any suggestions to lessen the blow?

A.
​​Ah, the infamous "how do I light up indoors without offending my wife" question. Luckily, you've come to the right place. Obviously, you can open some windows to help ventilate the smoke. You can pick up an exhaust window fan which will suck the smoke right out of your cigar den. If it's too cold, get a fresh-air ionizer and be sure to turn it on prior to lighting up your cigar and leave it on for an hour or so afterward.

Review: Ave Maria Reconquista

Bryan Ave Maria Reconquista
An elegant, super premium that competes with OpusX, God of Fire, and even Graycliff's most expensive sticks, Ave Maria Reconquista will change your perception of super premium cigars - we guarantee it.

Ave Maria Reconquista is simply the real deal packed in beautiful boxes of 12, each cigar in an individual coffin for the ultimate experience in quality, presentation, flavor, and aging. Only 16,000 boxes have ever been created, as the blend's Brazilian Habano Oscuro wrapper is so limited that this is the only cigar in the world to feature it. That's right, no other cigar in the world sports a Brazilian Habano Oscuro wrapper - which puts Ave Maria Reconquista in a league of its own.

Lift the heavy lid of this special box and you'll find a stunning presentation of 12 individual coffin boxes under a beautiful, hand-drawn vista. Inside each coffin lay a Reconquista - a Cuban-seed beauty packed full of premium Nicaraguan tobaccos from Condega, Jalapa, and Esteli - the country's most premier growing regions. To finish the blend, a dark, oily, toothy, rich and potent Brazilian Habano Oscuro leaf rests on the outside, concealing a premium Honduran leaf as a binder.

What should you expect with Reconquista? A whirlwind of complex flavors that intermingle with every single one of your taste buds. You'll find tons of different spices, a core of tobacco flavors, earth, pepper, some sweet nuances and a toasty finish - just for starters. This blend is so complex and well-aged that you could have a slightly different, yet unique experience with every different Reconquista you light up. Expect only the finest in quality as this tasty, balanced, full-bodied blend tantalizes your palate and soothes your mood. If you had to choose one cigar as your final smoke - something you've never even tried before - we promise you that Ave Maria Reconquista will not only surprise but thoroughly satisfy you to your core.
