This is one of those cigars we went all the way to Las Vegas to get our hands on. This Lonsdale was one of half a dozen cigars that were only available to stores that went to the PCA convention in the summer. Now, way later in December, here it is for you to enjoy. It’s called Le Pâtissier, French for pastry chef and it uses a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over a binder from Jalapa, Nicaragua and fillers from Costa Rica, as well as the Ometepe and Pueblo Nuevo regions of Nicaragua.
Celebrating the 135th anniversary of when Melanio Oliva first grew tobacco, establishing the Olivas as a tobacco family, Oliva has released a limited edition Serie V. This unique cigar has the same blend as the regular Serie V but features a round cap and a slight taper running down the lower third of the cigar. This was a limited release so once they are gone, that’s the end of them.
The Alec Bradley trilogy makes its return since it was discontinued in 2010. This unique series features three different blends: the Exotic Maduro, the Native Cameroon, and the Authentic Corojo, all in a triangular pressed shape. Come by the stores this week and tell us which one is your favorite. While you’re at it, grab a Prensado and tell us what you think.
