Spotlight Brand: Onyx Reserve

Onyx Reserve

Highly rated and competitively priced.

Onyx Reserve is a maduro lover's dream. As soon as it debuted it was met with some of the highest ratings ever given to a new cigar, including a whopping '94' rating earned by the mini belicoso.

Hitting the market in late 2000, the Onyx Reserve is a medium bodied maduro that utilizes the finest Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper. The extra aging process involved in the fermentation of this maduro wrapper gives the Onyx Reserve a toasty aroma and leaves a slight sweetness on the finish. Each cigar in the line is box pressed making it extremely comfortable to smoke. Only a cigar from the makers of such big names as Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta could turn out such an exceptional maduro blend. Highly rated and competitively priced, the Onyx Reserve is a homerun for the maduro cigar enthusiast.

Q & A: Nicaraguan Tobacco

Q.
I am really enjoying Nicaraguan cigars, but find some taste very different than others. Does Nicaraguan tobacco differ by what region it is grown in?

A.
Each manufacturer has their own techniques and methods for fermenting, blending and growing tobacco and rolling cigars. A cigar is a reflection of who is making it. But in trying to understand Nicaraguan tobacco, it is important to recognize the different tobacco growing regions within the country in order to understand and appreciate the tobaccos it has to offer. Just as wine regions are recognized for their individual qualities, so are tobacco regions. There are four main tobacco growing regions in Nicaragua – Esteli, Jalapa, Condega and Ometempe.
