Aging Room Pelo de Oro cigars are a literally, one-of-a-kind blend from Rafael Nodal with welcome assistance by A.J. Fernandez who provided both, the rare tobaccos and the factory for these limited production cigars. Meaning "golden hair" in Spanish, Pelo de Oro tobacco is sought for its depth of flavor and fuller body; yet, this fanciful leaf, which was once popular in Cuba, is very difficult to grow. However, A.J. has been successful at harvesting it in small amounts from heritage Cuban seeds in Nicaragua.
"Tobacco does not get any more rare or harder-to-find than Pelo de Oro," says Rafael, who sees his Boutique Blends Cigars company as "a laboratory" for creating unique cigar blends with the rarest tobaccos.
Handcrafted in only one size, the 5½" x 55 "Scherzo" is comprised of 90% Nicaraguan Pelo de Oro tobaccos and a Nicaraguan Cuban-seed wrapper finished with twisted triple cap pigtail. The smoke is full-bodied, and as Rafael says, "As Cuban as you can get."
Presented in boxes of 10 cigars, the Aging Room Pelo de Oro Scherzo will be available until the limited amount of Pelo de Oro tobacco has been depleted. So, be sure to add some to your humidor sooner than later.
