Partagas Series No.1 EL2017

The Series No.1 is one of the three limited editions of 2017. Sold in 2018, with a considerable delay, the chosen format is called “Noblezas”, unique in the Cuban production due to its size.

Asylum 13 99 Problems

Asylum 13 99 Problems

Asylum 13 99 Problems is a cigar produced in Danlì, Honuras, at the “El Aladino” factory. The name of these cigars is due to a mathematical calculation, or how many of these Lancero can be inserted in a box of Asylum 13 Ogre (an 8×80, the complete opposite size compared to the Lancero). Aesthetically, they are rolled in a Maduro shaded wrapper leaf. The filling is uniform, but in quite a few examples we have found aesthetic defects on the wrapper leaf. The head is finished in...

Padilla Criollo 98 Robusto

Padilla Criollo 98 Robusto

The Padilla Criollo 98 Robusto is made in Honduras, at the Raices Cubanas factory, located in Danlì. The name of the line is not chosen at random and refers to the wrapper leaf used to dress these cigars, which is, precisely, a Ciorllo 98 variety, grown in Honduras. The cigar is rolled in a wrapper that is slightly rustic to the touch. In some samples we noticed slight chromatic defects. Country of Origin: Honduras Size: 55 x 127 mm (5″) Wrapper: Honduras Binder: Nicaragua Filler: Nicaragua...

Padron TAA No.89 Maduro

Padron TAA No.89 Maduro

The origins of this cigar date back to 2016, when it was launched to commemorate José Padron’s 89th birthday. However, recently it has been relaunched as an exclusive edition for the TAA (Tobacco Association of America). This means that it is marketed only in the United States. The band looks different than what usually seen on a Padron cigar, as the one used is black and the cigar is easily recognizable. Aesthetically, the cigar is dressed in a Maduro shaded wrapper leaf, which is very...

Serino Royale 20th Anniversary Maduro XX Robusto

Serino Royale 20th Anniversary Maduro XX Robusto

The Serino Royale 20th Anniversary Maduro XX Robusto is produced in Nicaragua, at the “La Corona” factory. The reference to the twentieth anniversary does not refer directly to the Serino brand (which is quite young, it was in fact launched in 2016), but to the group behind the brand, which celebrated 20 years with this line. The cigar is wrapped in a Maduro shades wrapper, that is silky to the touch. Filling is good and shows no gaps. Country of Origin: Nicaragua Size: 48 x 130 mm...
