Alec Bradley’s masterpiece blend is graced with a limited production Mexican wrapper to create a blend that delivers a complex onslaught of flavor from first light to finish. Everything from the top-notch construction, oily wrapper, and even burn, make this one a go-to full-bodied maduro for myself and so many others.
Camacho Triple Maduro is unique to say the least. Comprised entirely of a carefully selected mixture of maduro leaf from four different countries, this is one of the darkest, richest blends you can get your hands on. The wafting waves of spice, rich espresso sweetness, and smooth chocolate is something you can get lost in and truly relax.
Romeo y Julieta is known for their use of Sumatran and Connecticut wrappers, but not until the introduction of the Viejo did they become well-known for using a San Andres maduro wrapper, masterfully at that. Expect a sweet aroma reminiscent of fresh, baking bread and smooth, savory cocoa and cream flavors.
A cousin of the famed Drew Estate Liga Privada, this hearty maduro was born in the factory by the rollers themselves, using many of the same tobaccos. The main difference lies in its spicy San Andres maduro wrapper which offers a creaminess and natural sweetness to its core flavors of spice, espresso, and vanilla bean.
Handcrafted and engineered to generate a complex and completely satisfying experience, the La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor is nothing less than perfection. Shrouded in a Mexican Maduro wrapper and bursting with a concoction of Nicaraguan long leaf, this blend flourishes with a bouquet of cocoa, espresso, and earth.
