Taste Of Cuba
What is the taste of Cuba? It is a bold cigar bursting with notes of spice and leather but finishes with a balanced creaminess that is hard to find today. As many cigar enthusiasts have come to learn, the goal of achieving this taste within the soils of Nicaragua, Honduras, and the Dominican have been met with great success. So we asked our experts to feature a blend of their choosing that offers an experience worthy of such a title.
This is the cigar world’s meat and potatoes. A robust, full-bodied blend offering plenty of spice and dark espresso notes while remaining smooth and satisfying throughout. The Edge has stood the test of time and remains one of the country’s top sellers due to the consistency within its construction and rich, hearty flavors.r
Anyone yearning for the old days of Cuba simply hasn’t tried anything from the My Father factory. This ‘94’ rated gem was blended by a legend (Don Pepin Garcia)who started rolling cigars in Cuba when he was just 11 years old. All-Nicaraguan fillers are nestled within a choice Ecuadorian Habano leaf that is packed with notes of cedar, earth, and hints of spice.
One of the first cigars I ever enjoyed and I remember the experience like it was yesterday. Box-pressed, this thing looks like a chocolate bar and it doesn’t taste that much different. This rich, exciting blend of diverse tobaccos serves to commemorate the Exodus of expert Cuban cigar families and their impact on the industry following nationalization in 1959.
If you like a complex, yet smooth cigar, this one is for you. With its flawless Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and delicious well-aged Nicaraguan fillers, this cigar will please even the most scrupulous veteran cigar enthusiasts. With notes of toast, cedar and leather, along with the billowing plumes of white smoke, I just couldn’t put this masterpiece down.
