Arturo Fuente Añejo


Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Robusto


Carlos Toraño Exodus 1959 50 Years


One of the world’s most rare cigars, the Añejo cigar is rolled with the very best Dominican filler and binder from Chateau de la Fuente, then adds a 5-year-old Connecticut maduro wrapper aged in a Cognac barrel. This blend yields a rich, spicy, slightly sweet smoke and the unique aging process leaves a distinct finish.

 Typically only available at Father’s Day and Christmas, this cigar is one of the most exclusive cigars in the world today.

A nicely spiced medium bodied smoke that is slightly sweet and very aromatic. Wrapped with an extraordinary Cameroon leaf from the Central African Rain Forest, and blended by the Fuente family using their finest 100% sun grown tobaccos, this cigar is rich, complex and exotic.    An anniversary cigar, this one is intended to remind us that adversity can be overcome with hard work and patience. 1959 was the year that the Toraño Family, among many others, were exiled from their homeland of Cuba and had to begin life anew.  As expatriated Cubans, they have since triumphed both as people and as creators of a new cigar industry in the countries where they settled. So the Exodus 50 Years is a celebration of that triumph and was released in 2009 as a part of the Toraño families "Our Roots Run Deep Tour". This cigar is the most full-bodied blend of the Exodus line, but with a subtle, natural sweetness and balance.

Defiance by Xikar


El Rico Habano Classic


Fuente Fuente OpusX

  Created by Jesus Fuego for Xikar, the Guardian is smooth and rich, with an incredibly luxurious Criollo wrapper aged four years.   In 1970, Cigar Master Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Sr. created El Rico Habano, the first line of cigars rolled at his factory in Miami`s Little Havana section. The reaction to this full-bodied smoke was terrific, and El Rico Habano became a sought-after selection among seasoned smokers. Although a tobacco shortage in 1994 forced El Rico Habano to cease production, it was re-introduced by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. in 2001 upon the return of Nicaragua's superb tobacco crop. Today, `The Rich One` is back in its original full-bodied taste and strength.   Legendary Fuente Fuente OpusX is consistently named the world's most sought-after cigar brand by Cigar Aficionado and is the culmination of the Fuente family's 100-year tradition of cigar-making excellence.

 The secret of Fuente Fuente OpusX is the cigar's exquisite, silken Rosado wrapper leaves that are grown of the Fuente family's renowned organic tobacco plantation, Chateau de le Fuente, which is located in a remote, tropical river valley in the Dominican Republic.

Liga Privada #9 Pabejo Oscuro


Padron 4000 Maduro


Tatuaje Havana VI Angeles

  Originally created for the smoking pleasure of Drew Estate company president Steve Saka. Exquisitely blended from seven different aged tobaccos from seven different farms, it is handcrafted by the factory's absolute best torcedors. Each cigar is guaranteed to be flawless in construction, flavor and character. Rich, complex and full bodied without being harsh, this liga is best described in one word: satisfying.   From the Padron Classic or traditional line, this cigar is manufactured entirely from Nicaraguan tobacco and is boxed pressed. The cigars are rolled in Nicaragua and Honduras. All Padron cigars have a distinct, terrific smell that sets them apart from most other smokes.   Another creation from Pete Johnson and Pepin Garcia, the Angeles is a Nicaraguan puro with a silky Corojo 99 wrapper produced in Pepin's Tabaclera Cubana factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.

  This gorgeous little corona with a dark red wrapper is a black cherry bomb loaded with spice and leather flavors. A strong complex cigar with a long finish that earns it high rankings.
