In blending terminology, capote (or "cape") is used to refer to the binder, as it drapes over the filler it complements. Binder leaves lay the framework for an even burn, a smooth surface on which the wrapper lies, and their absorbent nature allows for better flow of air through the cigar. We celebrate this unsung hero with The Capote Collection, a unique sampler of three highly-rated blends all utilizing Indonesian binder leaves.
Villiger's Flor de Ynclan (#10 of 2017) has loads loads of earth, cocoa, and cedar in a medium-bodied package with impeccable burn; Room101 FARCE (#22 of 2019), an exceptionally flavorful medium-to-full bodied blend, is the brand's first-ever Dominican-made release; and finally Alec Bradley Tempus (#5 of 2017), a medium-to-full bodied cigar with big and balanced notes of earth, spice, and espresso from its aged tri-country blend. A good cigar means more than just a nice wrapper, and that's something every enthusiast should know.
