A smooth stunner from Davidoff.
Created at the Tabadom factories in the Dominican Republic, legendary home to Davidoff cigars and birthplace of numerous brands which carry impressively high ratings but often oppressively high price tags. I'll fix the pricing issue here and now, but I can't deny the quality and value of these regardless of cost.
Between the aged Dominican and Peruvian core tobaccos and flawless Connecticut wrapper, the blend yields a complex flavor profile and smooth body from start to finish. Expect rich, creamy, buttery - every Zino is exactly the same - awesome! This said, sometimes you simply can't do a cigar justice until you stop reading about it and just light one up.
One of the best Maduros, period.
This blend is all about Abe Flores, the same master blender behind some of the highest-rated combinations in the industry. It was released at the 2013 IPCPR as a way to fitfully honor his legacy and tradition of superb quality blending methods.
Produced in a small factory in the Dominican Republic, these long-filled gems offer complex aromas and a full-flavored character that creates a long-lasting finish. Handcrafted in a small boutique factory by some of the Dominican's most qualified torcedors, Pinar del Rio are truly one of the Dominican's most flavorful cigars.
Full in body and rich to the core, Pinar del Rio AFR-75 features a dark, sleek, and oily San Andres Maduro wrapper leaf overtop a blend of ultra-special Nicaraguan Criollo '98, Connecticut Broadleaf, and Dominican long-fillers. Flavors are creamy and tasty, and the burn remains consistent throughout. This is a limited-edition release and only 500 boxes are available per year, so don't wait around on this one.
