Cigars: Nicaragua vs Dominican Republic

Featured Countries of Origin from your Favorite Cigar of the Month Club:  NICARAGUA AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

AFRICAN SUN-GROWN LEAVES HEAR OWN DRUMMERS . . .

Feisty pretty well describes these high-priming wrapper leaves. Well-grown in the wilds of the African jungle, these leaves are responsible for the sweet, cedary aspect to smokes they swaddle. Taste it in our first selection below!

CT, MADE IN THE SHADE . . .

A Connecticut shade leaf is nearly always light golden brown in color., exemplified by the two selections this month, both sporting CT shade wrappers grown in Ecuador. These wrapper leaves really look good, and that’s one of the most important things about a wrapper leaf — it’s the smoker’s first introduction to his/her cigar, and everybody needs to make a good first impression!

Another great trait of the CT shade leaf is that it burns evenly, slowly and smoothly, producing the sought-after gray-white ash all smokers hope for. With fine balance, it enhances the flavor of all cigars it cloaks, adding a little spice, floral notes and interesting overtones. (Pay attention to selections 2 and 4 this month!)

In the United States, this prized wrapper leaf can only be grown successfully in a 2-mile by 75-mile long strip of sandy soil in the Connecticut River Valley, where the soil and climate mirror that found in Cuba.

COROJO . . .

The Corojo wrapper leaf is actualy a hybrid union of a Sumatran and a native Cuban black tobacco. This marriage took place way back in the 1940′s, and has never faltered! Want proof of this steadfast union? Savor our selection number 3 this month!
