Spotlight Brand: Primeros Regionals - Dominican

Primeros Dominican

One of the best value blends in the business...

Dominican Primeros are one of the best values in the cigar world. Combining premium Dominican fillers with a Dominican binder and Connecticut Ecuador wrapper, this cigar is mellow with a very subtle flavor.

The Dominican Primeros marks the second release of the famed Primeros line, following the unprecedented success of the Honduran Primeros brand. These cigars are made with one goal in mind, to use premium tobacco to hand roll quality first (primero) cigars that will sell for the same low price as a second.

The Dominican Republic has long been known for its fine tobacco and subtle blends. The rollers that work in the island nation are considered the top cigar craftsmen in the world, stemming from top training programs. Typically, cigars from the Dominican Republic have a hefty price because of the cost of materials and labor, which is why the Dominican Primeros line is a breakthrough for Dominican cigars. This cigar is an excellent economical alternative to such famous Dominican brands as Montecristo and Macanudo.

Dave CAO Black

Mosaic (6.0"x42) Creamy brown, silky wrapper. Very attractive cigar. Pre-light flavors of cedar and light tobacco. Excellent construction with cedar, earthy aromas and some notes of honey. Salty on the palate but well balanced. Spice present through the nose and on the finish. Attractive cigar in a very classic size. Medium to full flavored and bodied with a delicious, long finish.

Storm (5.0"x50) Oily, light brown wrapper. Classic robusto size packed with flavor and well balanced. Great draw and flawless construction. Earth, cedar and salty notes on the palate.

Frontier (7.0"x50) Impressive, cedar wrapped cigar. Silky, creamy brown wrapper with an excellent draw. Salt and earthy notes with wood on the palate. Well balanced and medium to full bodied.

Bengal (6.0"x50) Classic toro size. Excellent burn and construction, which was consistent with all other sizes – extremely well made. Medium flavor and body.

Gothic (6.0"x52) Big cigar with a great deal of flavor. Silky, golden brown wrapper and cool notes on the palate. Never became hot or bitter. Medium to full bodied with earth and wood notes on the palate. Very unique character.
