CA Report: Top New Cigars – October 6 2017
Cigar Advisor Picks: Top New Cigars (Oct. 6, 2017)
By Fred Lunt
Welcome to this week’s top new cigars! It’s been another exciting week; the weather is still cigar-friendly, MLB playoffs are starting and football is in full swing – so we figured it’s time we brought out some new cigar options to help you tailgate your weekend games. This week, we’ve got new cigar goodies from our friends with hot new flavored cigars, quick smokes, a hidden boutique gem!
Made by Plasencia in Honduras, Maroma Sorrel is a mild, chocolatey-sweet smoke rolled into a fine Connecticut Shade wrapper with mixed fillers. A combination of creamy flavors and a sweetened cap, all at a palatable price for every day enjoyment. A new look for Maroma, too – if you like cigar art, the HumiJar is worth the price of admission alone.
Maroma Tawny hits the trifecta: sweet, smooth, and satisfying. Maroma Tawny features the smooth flavors of caramel and mild, toasty flavors through a vanilla flavored tip. An everyday mixed-filler smoke that comes in vacuum-sealed HumiJars for worry-free cigar management.
Perfect for fall yardwork…Hatchetfish are mild and mellow smokes – and on a budget, no less – with buttery Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers. Available in both a panatela and a cigarillo, these hard-working cigars come at a blue-collar price of less than $1 a smoke.
EP Carrillo Interlude
From the same man who brought you the Inch, Interlude is a derivative of the EPC classic in a series of more compact sizes. Just as tasty as their oversized counterparts, these cigars are a must for halftime and between-the-acts occasions. With a core of Nicaraguan binder and fillers over your choice or maduro and natural wrappers, you’ll be wishing they went longer.
Nestor Miranda Corojo Collection
Feel like boutiquing? Nestor Miranda’s Corojo Collection brings full-bodied flavors of pepper, wood, and coffee in Corojo-wrapped panache. A pleasurable weekend smoke for after dinner or poker night, this Corojo version is a Nicaraguan puro made at My Father – and a flavorful starting point to work your way through the Connecticut, Habano, and Maduro collections.
