Originally from Nova Scotia, Canada, Paul Stulac came to the cigar business in 1994 with nothing more than a small kiosk and a dream. In 2011 his dream became a reality when he released his first official blend under the Paul Stulac Cigars banner at the 2011 IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas. It all came together when Paul met master blender, Guillermo Peña, a nephew of Don Pepin Garcia. Working exclusively with Guillermo, Paul's cigars are manufactured in Peña's Miami, Florida factory, and in Nicaragua offering very full-flavored and complex flavor profiles.
Known as "the cigar that started it all," Paul & Guillermo's first release was the Paul Stulac Classic Blend cigars line. The Classic Blend is handcrafted in Estelí Nicaragua with a very select, all-Nicaraguan long-filler blend rolled in two wrapper choices: Ecuadorian Habano and Brazilian Maduro. Originally intended to be an "entry level cigar," the smoke offers a full-body and complexity that may be more appealing to experienced cigar smokers.
Another line that's been hailed as a very full-bodied and complex cigar blend is the Paul Stulac Black Midnight Fire cigars selection. Made in Miami, Paul Stulac Black features a robust Nicaraguan core tamed by a Sumatra binder and a 3-year-aged Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. This is a peppery smoke that offers a good amount of earthiness and sweet tobacco flavors with a hint of coffee in the mix. Ideal for smoking late in the day or after dinner.
If you're a maduro smoker, Paul Stulac Red Screaming Sun cigars are made in Miami with a similar Nicaraguan long-filler/Sumatra binder blend as found in the Black Midnight Fire, but with a U.S. Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. The smoke starts with a shot of pepper, giving way to flavors of coffee and charred wood. More flavors enter the fray as the cigar continues, including more clearly defined woody, coffee, and creamy notes, while its peppery base steps in and out in varying degrees along the way.
The third and most popular of the Black, Red and White editions are the Paul Stulac White Blinding Light cigars. Here you have another highly complex, full-bodied blend made by Guillermo Peña in Miami using a Nicaraguan core and a Sumatra binder seamlessly rolled in a dark and spicy Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Excellent for both new and experienced cigar smokers for its full, yet non-overpowering body, Stulac calls his White line, "the pinnacle" among all of his boutique cigars for its fullness, excellent balance of sweet and spicy flavors, and stunning complexity.
Inspired by visitors to the Miami factory, Paul Stulac No Dress Code cigars bring you a uniquely fresh and flavor experience like no other. Because many cigar smokers never get the chance to smoke cigars this fresh, Paul wanted to bring that experience to market in a very limited release cigar. Made with the same handcrafted quality and rich-tasting premium tobaccos, but without all the frills, No Dress Code cigars are made expressly for home aging. How do you know when they're ready to smoke? Just look at the "best before and after" dates on the boxes. Other than actually visiting a cigar factory, the cigars don't get any fresher than this.... more
