Dapper Cigar Co. | Cubo Sumatra | Robusto (4.5X50)
W: Ecuadorian Sumatra
B: Nicaragua Jalapa
F: Nicaraguan Esteli/Jalapa and Connecticut Broadleaf
Sumatran is quickly, and quietly becoming one of the diverse wrappers for blenders to show off their skills with. The Cubo Sumatra is no different, allowing Dapper to show of their ability at combining nuanced, subtle complexity with undeniable consistent flavor. All of that packed into the unique Petite Robusto vitola will make the Cubo Sumatra a very memorable experience.
Baracoa Cigar Co. | The Voyage | Corona (5×46)
Newest cigar to the humidor, and already kicking it nerdy. Medium smoke with tons of cedar, white pepper, coco, and a bit of honey. Smooth and consistent throughout, The Voyage is the definition of a “sit back and relax” cigar. The corona vitola concentrates the flavors a bit to get your attention all that much more. Welcome to the fold Baracoa, what a beautiful Voyage it is…
Valacari | The Messenger | Churchill | (7X50)
W: Ecuadorian Hybrid Connecticut
F: Experimental Nicaragua tobaccos from a micro farm in Estelí
Barely a year into existence, Valacari is already putting it’s fingerprint on the typical profiles you would expect from a new company. Yes, The Messenger is a mild Connecticut blend, but there so much more to the cigar than that. There is something in this profile that feels very…new, which for a Connecticut blend a feat unto itself. The other bonus is this perfect Churchill vitola, which is one my favorite ways to enjoy a smooth, interesting cigar such as The Messenger.
Adventura | The Explorer | Gran Toro BP (6×56)
W: Mexican Habano
B: Ecuadorian Sumatra
F: Dominican Republic and Ecuadorian
By the time the USA got to try Henderson Ventura’s Explorer, there was a whole UK Market that already knew what we were missing out on. Utilizing unusual varietals of Mexican and Ecuadorian tobacco, The Explorer is a medium, extremely complex cigar that loves to punch up with nuttiness, wood, and cream. The real surprise is the steady rise in power as the cigar moves into its final third, making it a blend that is true display of Ventura’s talents.
Emilio | Grimalkin | Robusto (5X50)
B: Nicaraguan Habano
Not you dad’s Nica cigar. James Brown’s rework of the original Grimalkin from Emilio stood out almost immediately back in 2018. While medium bodied, Grimalkin gives off a ton of flavor, ranging from tangy spice to to rich wood. On paper, you may think you what to expect, but trust me, Grimalkin will definitely surprise you.
