Mango Cedar Aged 2.5+ Years



Mango Cedar.  The cigar of the Summer of ’22.  You have it.  And only you.  Privada members are the only people who have access to these cigars, so share them wisely.  After receiving this cigar sample I knew a few things.  The first being I was reminded of pungent cedar and dried mangos.  Amazing.  The second thing I knew was that this cigar was not made by any blender we work with.  I also felt as though the cigar was aged a bit.  Not a ton, but just enough to ripen.  Turns out I was right.  The cigars have been aged at the factory for a year and in our possession for about 6 months.

The cigar was also made by a factory worker who actually rolls cigars, not their normal blender.  The story goes that this is the cigar he would roll for himself.  Not uncommon in cigar factories.  What is uncommon is that this is the only cigar he smokes.  I thought that was cool.  His name is Angel and the factory is called Tabacalera Tolupan and is based in Honduras.  We have never worked with them in the past, but I certainly hope to get more cigars like this in the future from them.  This cigar embodies what is possible in regards to flavor out of Honduras.  Spectacular.  Summer vibes on this one for sure.  We took extra time to dress these up so they did not fly under your radar.  Enjoy!

Tasting Notes: This first third erupts with charred cedar and mango fruitiness. There is also a black pepper both on the palate and retro as well as an oakiness to the retro that is quite comforting.  The retrohale sees florals, fruits, and other amazing flavors and is alarmingly full on the retro, be careful!  Sweet, tangy, salty, and mango flavors sum up the first third.

The second third is all of the above, but now there is even more balance.  It remains a full-body banger for me at least, but offers depth and nuance most full-body bangers do not achieve.  Florals, fruits, cedar, mango, salts, pepper, leather, spice, and a creamy oaky smoke.  The sensations are incredible and the flavors are unreal.

In the final third, somehow vanilla enters the equation.  Because of the dominant mango notes, when the vanilla enters it makes it very creamsicle-like.  I still get spices, pepper, fruits, oak, and leather but now it’s changed somehow for the better.  Enjoy the cigar of the summer, Mango Cedar!

Pairing Notes: Dried Mangos.  Overproof bourbon.  Iced tea of all flavors.  Coffee light and sweet.  Thai food.  Pineapple soda.  Mango flavored anything, like mango sorbet.  Crumb cake.
