Leon Jimenes #1
Made in the La Aurora factory in the Dominican Republic, the country's oldest factory, Leon Jimenes #1 cigars are a distinctive, well-made Dominican cigar brand blended with the highest grade USA Connecticut Shade wrappers and Dominican fillers. Since 1987, when the Miranda family revived the brand, Leon Jimenes #1 cigars have grown exponentially in demand for their mild taste, easy draw, excellent balance and exquisite aroma.
First taste was in the Dom rep back in 1996. Went to the factory, saw them being made and bought box #1 plus #3. Has been the only cigar I have smoked since then. Beautiful.
To me, this is one of the most underated cigars imaginable. As some one who generally perfers much fuller flavored cigars, this is my favorite mild cigar, bar none. Mild cigars have a reputation of lacking complexity which isn't the case here. Nice wood,leather and dried fruit tastes that keep you searching for different flavor notes. Only drawback is a kind of homely cap that detracts from an otherwise attractive appearance. Excellant after dessert smoke.
