Alec Bradley Prensado

Alec Bradley Select Cabinet Reserve

Alec Bradley Tempus Centuria

  

Released in early 2009, the Prensado is Alec Bradley's newest hit and their strongest cigar to date.  It is a box-pressed Cubanesque style cigar with a triple cap head and a brand new wrapper.  This cigar was built around the sweetness and strength of the Corojo 2006 wrapper and provides a rich, balanced, complex smoke.

 
The careful selection of mid and upper priming tobaccos were hand picked to create the rich and balanced SCR line. Alec Bradley's Select Cabinet Reserve delivers smooth bold flavors derived from the fertile soils of family run farms in Honduras and Nicaragua. This limited yield, dark caramel colored wrapper, adorns a skillful selection of premium leaves from the valleys of Central America, creating a perfect union of balance and flavor.

Alec Bradley Tempus is made at the Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras. Tobacco is selected from a farm in the Trojes region of Honduras, and from Jalapa, Nicaragua. 

 This cigar is dark and attractive with an even draw and burn. The flavors are strong and spicy with some chocolate, cedar and a bit of sweetness.

 Camacho Select 10th Anniversary Robusto

Camacho Triple Maduro

CAO Brazilia Lambada

Commemorating 10 years of growing authentic Corojo Seed tobacco, Camacho's Christian Eiroa brings you this smooth and creamy cigar. 

With a medium to full bodied blend of all Corojo seed filler, binder and wrapper tobaccos, these cigars produce rich, complex flavors of leather, nuts and coffee. Add spicy notes of pepper on the finish and you have a truly classic Camacho cigar.

The Camacho Triple Maduro series is the first ever triple maduro cigar. It took almost a full year of blending five different maduro varieties before arriving at the perfect recipe.

Filled with rich, smooth Nicaraguan tobacco, wrapped in divine dark brown Brazilian leaves, the Brazilia is the result of an arduous and victorious search, by CAO for the finest Brazilian wrapper tobacco. And it is a full-bodied masterpiece, rich with earth, coffee, nuts, and cream.

CAO Lx2

Carlos Torano Exodus 1959

Defiance by Xikar

CAO Lx2 features a sungrown Nicaraguan wrapper, Honduran binder, and three different ligero fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.

 

CAO Lx2 boasts a bold, muscular structure but also shows flavors of bittersweet chocolate, paprika, and woody tobacco notes that fan out superbly on the palate.

Rated Top 5 Cigar of the Year by Cigar Aficionado in 2006! The Exodus 1959 commemorates the Exodus of expert Cuban cigar families and their impact on the cigar industry after the nationalization of all tobacco farms and cigar factories by the Cuban government in 1959. The Toraños were one of those families. This cigar has rich and bold flavors with a dynamic blend of tobaccos from five different countries.

Created by Jesus Fuego for Xikar, the Guardian is smooth and rich, with an incredibly luxurious Criollo wrapper aged four years.

El Rey del Mundo Flor de Llaneza

Hoyo de Monterrey Dark Sumatra

Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur

A testimonial to the skills of Frank Llaneza, perhaps the world's most accomplished purveyor of Havana-style tobaccos, Senor Estello Padron, formerly of Habana, Cuba and Senor Manuel Zavala, master cigar maker.   Superb Ecuadorian Sumatra wrappers and long Havana Seed filler tobaccos are melded by world-famous Palicio craftsmen into a memorable smoking experience. Dark Sumatra is named after its wrapper tobaccos, hand-selected from the very darkest and richest Ecuadorian sun-grown, Sumatra seed leaves. Dark Sumatra also has a rich, textured CT Broadleaf binder and a special robust blend of premium Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican filler tobaccos that all contribute to the extraordinary taste of this new Hoyo de Monterrey cigar. Dark Sumatra is a full-bodied cigar, even more robust than a regular Hoyo de Monterrey. An extremely well constructed medium to full bodied cigar, Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur is a superb example of Honduran craftsmanship. Lighter in color than a Cuban cigar as a result of its fine Connecticut Shade wrapper, this cedar-aged cigar is made with a rich Honduran blend that is very much in the Cuban tradition.
