Pinar Del Rio 1878 cigars are handmade with the most select Dominican Corojo, Habano, Criollo '98 tobaccos rolled in Ecuadorian Connecticut (white band) or sweet Brazilian Arapiraca (black band) wrappers topped by a classic Cuban pigtail. The cigars are well-packed, offering a good chewy consistency with a clean burn and firm ash. The smoke is very creamy with a spicy start that rounds out to a well-balanced, earthy, woody, and complex smoke. Choose the wrapper you prefer and order some today.
Consistently excellent stick. Lots of rich smoke and great mouth feel. Great construction and burn. Just the right amount of resistence in the draw. I always have some of these in my humidor.
This cigar is loaded with flavor, and the Arapiraca wrapper is so naturally sweet, you d think they dipped em in sugar. Full-bodied, perfectly-balanced, and complex. Smoked for over 2 hours. Every puff delicious until the last two inches, when it turned just a little sour, but I d had enough enjoyment by then. Great smoke, especially if you love hearty maduros.
This has to be one of the smoothest, creamiest full flavored cigars I have ever had. I immediately fell in love with it. Nice even burn, lots of white creamy smoke with an easy draw. I would compare it to one of my other regular favorites like the CAO Brazilia. If you can handle a full flavor smoke, this one has it all.
