Spotlight Brand: Mark Twain

December 19, 2010 |

Crafted with the everyday enthusiast in mind.

One of our all-time favorites, Mark Twain is a mellow blend perfect for every day enjoyment. Hailing from Nicaragua, they contain an aged recipe of Nicaraguan long-leaves masked with a silky Connecticut Shade wrapper. We simply can't get over how inexpensive this cigar is for the quality contained within. Upon first glance it looks exceptional, seamless from head to toe with a dark hue, leaving the stick almost looking like it's showcasing a Habano leaf. Expertly constructed at one of the country's most premier manufacturers, this mellow to medium-bodied beauty will sure satisfy.

Mark Twain consists of Nicaraguan long-fillers all meticulously hand-bunched, and then bound with a Nicaraguan binder. The result releases a hearty character of earth that exudes crisp notes of white pepper and oak. A light sweetness rests on your palate for a medium finish, while the premium Connecticut Shade wrapper keeps the cigar smooth and mellow from head to toe. Perfect with your favorite cup of coffee or as your constant after-work delight, Mark Twain will provide you with at least an hour of enjoyment, especially when you consider its hefty sizes.

Q & A: Palate Cleansing?

Q.
After enjoying several cigars, what is the best way to clean and refresh your palate?

12/15/10 | by GB of Austin, TX

A.
​There are a few different methods you could try, all of which work pretty well. Which one you choose all depends on your personal preferences. The obvious and most common solution many people choose is simply brushing their teeth with a citrus or mint toothpaste. However, I personally prefer something less offensive on my palate so I usually rinse my palate with club soda. The carbonated water exudes all the left over tobacco remnants from your tongue and mouth, yet remains relatively flavorless to keep your palate crisp and fresh.
