Value hunters take note, there's a new bundle in town and this one is an all-around winner! Originally introduced at Le Cigar Noir-Beverly Hills on May 1, 1996, Saint Luis Rey is a revamped version of the popular Cuban brand. An immediate hit with most everyone who tried it, Saint Luis Rey has been a mainstay in humidors ever since.
SLR's latest release, Estates, makes a strong case as their most exciting product to date. Rolled Cuban-sandwich style in the Dominican Republic, Estates features a filler mix consisting of tasty tobaccos from a trifecta of top-growing nations — Peru, Honduras, and Nicaragua — the same core recipe the '92' rated SLR Original requires. All this is then expertly rolled beneath a duo of natural Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers. That's correct, Estates is double wrapped, resulting in each handmade having a higher quality of construction and an increased level of flavor. Speaking of which, expect an earthy, full-tilt profile which presents a pleasant touch of pepper on the front of the palate. Nutty nuances of chocolate, vanilla, and dried fruits are frequent, before a rich, full-bodied finish. For the price, SLR Estates will prove to be tough to beat!
