AVO Syncro Nicaragua Box-Pressed Robusto
Dominican Republic 5.0” x 50 Medium-Full
This is AVO’s first blend with Nicaraguan tobacco, and hopefully it isn’t their last. A delicious, medium-bodied stick with a seamless Ecuador Connecticut wrapper. The inclusion of Nicaraguan long-fillers adds a bold, flavorful kick. Cream, leather, cedar, and a satisfying red pepper combine to keep things interesting down to the nub. Pairs well with a dark rum.
H. Upmann Media Noche Toro
Dominican Republic 6.0” x 54 Medium
Smooth and satisfying. The draw is easy, without being loose. Every puff of this Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro-wrapped cigar delivers waves of rich flavor. Dark espresso, leather, oak, and a natural tobacco sweetness are all prominent. In addition, a thick cloud of smoke accompanies every draw, completing this a chewy, complexity-dense experience. The finish is long, revealing a hickory, smoky-sweet flavor.
Macanudo Gold Label Lord Nelson (Churchill)
Dominican Republic 7.0” x 49 Mild
A real beauty to look at for any cigar lover. The Connecticut wrapper is silky-smooth, and perfectly complements the gold on the primary and secondary bands. The marriage of Cuban-seed Dominican and Mexican long-fillers consistently delivers a mixture of citrus, lemon sweetness and a cedary trace of pepper. Every inch of this Churchill burn cool, making Mac Gold the perfect companion to a mellow Sunday afternoon.
Man O’ War Armada Gordo
Nicaragua 6.5” x 56 Full
An absolute eruption of flavors from the get-go. Many cigars promise complexity, but Armada delivers in spades. This chunky 56-ring vitola employs a dark and oily Ecuador Sumatra wrapper, cloaking an aged mixture of Nicaraguan long-fillers. Expect a rich caramel sweetness to start, backed by bitter dark espresso note. The cigar crescendos into bold hints of earth, vanilla, coffee, and black pepper spices.
Punch Signature Torpedo
Honduras 5.8” x 52 Full
Cloaked in a reddish-brown Corojo wrapper, Punch Signature is an elegant blend. The Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers are rare and refined, while the Torpedo shape brings out red pepper and sweet spices. Throughout the burn, a tasty combo of soft floral flavors mingle with thick molasses and roasted nuts. The finish is all spice with some oak on the exhale. Dee-lish.
