This Cigar Samplers offering is straightforward. 1) Connecticut Wrappers 2) Variety of sizes 3) Fair prices 4) Brand names you know and 5) FREE shipping. I could go on with ratings and such, but I digress. Fun fact! Connecticut wrapper is the #1 selling wrapper in the world. It would appear that people enjoy a more mellow cigar from time to time.
This first cigar helped put Alec Bradley on the "walk o' fame". The Medalist Toro ( 6 x 54) is the largest cigar in this pack and could be the tastiest. I'll leave that up to you to decide. I just report the facts here. Fact, this cigar is a toasty Honduran puro that is light on strength, but strong on flavor. See why this cigar is in 1,000's of humidors across the world!
Sammy Philipps is handsome. He also runs things at La Palina like the mayor! This La Palina Nicaragua Connecticut Robusto ( 5 X 52) takes a traditionally mellow stick and kicks it up a touch. Yes, it is still towards the mellow side, However, with the DR and Nicaraguan tobaccos, there is a hint of white pepper to go with the baked bread taste.
Rafael Nodel is a blending force! The Aging Room Solera Shade Festivo ( 4.75 X 52) is a great cigar that is blended using the solera method like in the wine industry. Super-aged tobacco is blended with newer tobacco to come up with interesting blends. This cigar is mellow with hints of nuts and caramel. Made by Jochy in the DR with Rafael, you are going to enjoy this uniquely blended cigar.
The Nub Connecticut ( 4 X 60) is the shortest cigar in the mix. However, it is the chunkiest in the lot! This cool-burning cigar gets right to the point. The idea behind Nub was to have at the "sweet spot" when you first light up the cigar. Hey, it worked and still sells well today. This cigar is fuller than the rest and closer to medium than mellow. It does have that creamy taste you get with a Connecticut wrapper though.
As I said, this Cigar Samplers deal touches all the bases. If you want to venture on the mellow side, this is for you. This deal is full of great names, great cigars, and even better pricing! Smash the "ADD TO CART" button posthaste before I run low.
