Shaving down prices.
Founded in 2010 by Tony Bellatto and Craig Rossi, La Barba cigars may be fairly new to the cigar industry, but the brand has already captured the attention of aficionados everywhere. By using unmistakable imagery, to hand selecting each tobacco used in each of their premiums, Bellatto and Rossi have gone to great lengths to ensure that their cigars are of the utmost quality.
La Barba Red was the first blend launched by the duo, but it has been revamped to up the spice, while keeping signature Dominican nuances. This premium boasts a seamless Dominican Corojo wrapper with Dominican long-fillers and select ligero leaves at the core. Full-bodied and with flavor to spare, La Barba red exudes notes of black pepper with hints of cocoa, leather, and an underlying sweetness. This is an extravagant boutique blend that will surely win you over in the first puff.
OMG it's DPG!
At this point it’s safe to say that any blend from Don Pepín García is bound to be a home run. His cigar blending legacy is well-known, and My Father Cigars in Nicaragua is one of the most respected and highly successful operations in the industry. Following the mega-success of Flor de las Antillas, the master blender once again embraces old Cuban art and technique with the release of La Antiquedad, which translates to “The Antiquity.”
A blend five years in the making, García and his son, Jaime, have developed this super-premium cigar using the finest Cuban seed Nicaraguan-grown tobaccos. These tobaccos have undergone no less than three and a half years of curing, resulting in a very complex yet balanced profile. Featuring a double binder comprised of Nicaraguan Corojo and Criollo leaf, this medium to full-bodied blend is finished with a rare, super flavorful Ecuador Rosado Oscuro wrapper. '91' rated.
Drawing attention throughout the cigar boom in the 1990s, Bahia Gold was popular for years. After an unannounced hiatus Bahia Gold is making a comeback, and this is one to rant and rave about. Back and better than ever, Bahia Gold is one box-pressed, mellow to medium-bodied cigar that is here to stay.
Bahia Gold is draped in a smooth Ecuador wrapper that is sure to catch the eye of any cigar enthusiast. Inside are Nicaraguan fillers that make way for a creamy and leathery experience with just a kick of spice on the finish. Bahia Gold is one cigar that goes nicely with a perfect day, all the while awakening your palate with pure cigar bliss.
