Full-bodied, complex, and well-made, Don Pepin Garcia Blue is worthy of all the praise it's received since its launch. The blend utilizes high quality Nicaraguan long-fillers with a toothy Corojo wrapper over top, giving this '93' rated gem a spicy aroma with hints of cinnamon, earth, and dried fruit. One of Don Pepin's finest cigars to date.

Joya de Nicaragua is known for its full-bodied blends, but it stepped out of the box with Red. This Nicaraguan puro is surrounded with a Nicaraguan-grown wrapper, which brings a smooth oak nuance up front with earth, spice, and a bit of leather that lingers in the background. This premium will leave you with seeing anything but Red.

Punch Rare Corojo features a beautiful Ecuador Sumatra wrapper with Dominican, Honduran, and Nicaraguan long-leaf tobaccos tucked beneath. With a well-deserved '92' rating, this gem is robust, full-bodied, and smooth with an easy draw. A "rare" experience that will leave you coming back for more.

This maduro offers an excellent medium to full body that starts off somewhat woodsy and sweet, but develops richness during the burn with notes of cedar, espresso, and a slight nuttiness, all with a creamy finish. Wrapped in a San Andres leaf brimming with Nicaraguan long-fillers, this cigar is a classic.

Here's a cigar worth investing in! The Banker is medium to full-bodied and, just like the stock market, alternates between some intense moments and periods of smooth stability. This balance between bold spices and pleasant, creamy nuances makes The Banker a blend that never loses its value in your regular rotation.
