Carnavale cigars are full-flavored smokes from Steve Ysidron of Epicurean Cigars, makers of fine, artisan style, small batch cigars. This limited edition blend is a marriage of vintage, estate-grown Nicaraguan Jalapa and Estelí ligero long-fillers framed in Connecticut Broadleaf & Honduran binders, then capped with a rare Nicaraguan Jalapa Habano Oscuro wrapper. After rolling, the cigars are aged an additional 4 years for the ultimate in smoothness. Once lit, the medium-bodied smoke issues well-balanced notes of oak, cedary spice, and dried fruit, plus hints of espresso, cocoa, and black pepper.
The bands are colorful and attractive with a Carnivale-style mask design, and each Carnavale size in is only released in 500 boxes annually to assure consistency. Steve believes you cannot rush true quality, and that this process is the only way to successfully deliver the very best in tobacco flavor.
