Anyone who enjoys fine tobacco products appreciates the appeal of new and different cigars emerging into the world marketplace. As for myself, I enjoy a cigar that is robust and full of flavor, yet does not knock your socks off. Flavor and draw are key factors for me, as well as size and shape. Over the years, I have smoked my way through Cuba and discovered many distinct differences between their legendary products and our domestically sold counterparts in America. Having worked closely with a team of skilled growers from Honduras, the Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua, the Cigar Shack has come up with a unique tobacco blend that I would be PROUD to put my name on!
The characteristics of this new and exclusive line of cigars appeal to the key different sensory inputs; they are extremely flavor filled with a medium body strength that will hold court with the likes of any OpusX, LFD, and my favorite, Padron! Yes, I said it - Padron! Made by master blenders and hand rolled by master rollers, this new tobacco line is "primed" and aged for five years before the rolling process. What does that mean? Well, Cuban tobacco for most Casa Del Habano stores in and out of Cuba is aged two years in this process. My tobacco is aged five years to give it a more favorable profile while maintaining a medium body strength. The production of these cigars is naturally limited because of the time and care that goes into each stick. The average, domestically sold cigars range from $15-$29.99, but the Cigar Shack boutique blend cigar is far from average at the top end of that scale. Much like a fine Padron, OpusX or LFD, or even Liga Pravda, this cigar is worth its price in taste and experience. If you really want to understand what all the craze is about, give one of these new cigars a try. You will not be disappointed.
Enjoy and be well,
