You can taste the rich Nicaraguan history in this full-bodied beauty from Estelí’s first cigar manufacturer. Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 1970 is a superb Nicaraguan puro featuring a dark and oily Criollo wrapper. It is deep and earthy with notes of roasted nuts and spice. This cigar is perfect to savor on a cold winter’s night drinking spiced eggnog.

CAO Brazilia

This classic has introduced so many to Brazilian tobacco, including myself. A top-seller within CAO’s illustrious ‘world cigar’ lineup, CAO Brazilia is a bold, full-bodied blend featuring a dark and lustrous wrapper and perfectly aged Nicaragua fillers. Rich notes of chocolate and spice are pleasant with a slight sweetness on the finish that marry together perfectly throughout.

Romeo y Julieta 1875

The original Dominican Romeo, the 1875 Bully performs like a true tobacco “cafe con leche” as nuances of coffee bean and sweet cream give way perfectly to its subtle sugarcane finish, creating a modern day classic. This best-seller is also a regular in my personal humidor. Mellow enough for the masses yet possessed with a surprising WOW factor.
