Maya Selva Flor De Selva White Rose Aged 2.5+ Years

(1 customer review)


5.5 x 48 • Privada Exclusive, Aged 1 Year

Wrapper: Honduran grown Connecticut Shade
Binder: Honduran
Fillers: Honduran
Body: Fresh-cut cedar and florals. Heavy fresh-cut cedar from the box.
Foot: More of that fresh-cut cedar from the box.
Cold Draw: Oats, fresh-cut cedar, sesame and dried fruits. Some habanero pepper too!

Tasting Notes: So right off the bat, you get to see how a cigar truly ages like in fresh-cut cedar. It offers a bit of bitterness in a good way, a flavor that equates, for me at least, to sesame seed oil. Once the sesame seed oil wraps up, simple syrup, cedar, florals, and toast enter in. Further in the first third, orange rind, black pepper and cream are dominant. There is a flavor I cannot quite describe…tree oil? The retrohale is CRAZY on this one. Sweet creamy, woody, and sour/tart with a fruity menthol essence. The Second Third is sugar cane, powdery smoke, white pepper and toast. There are also marigold florals, cedar and eucalyptus along with the resurgence of sesame oil. The final third transitions from the sesame oil to notes of eucalyptus, cedar and bread crust. It ends with nutmeg, cola nut, cream, and white pepper and a cinnamon finish, which all remind of of a quintessential autumn dessert.

Paring Notes: Light roast coffee, oat milk and sugar optional. Kahlua on the rocks. Champagne. Chocolate covered peanuts. Chocolate covered raisins. After a steak, or with shrimp cocktail, oysters, or most seafood. Caramel square, an hour before smoking. Caramel popcorn. Thai food.


Maya Selva is French/Honduran royalty and niece to a former President of Honduras. In 1994, Maya decided she wanted to learn tobacco. She contacted Nestor Plasencia who gave her a job sorting tobacco. She then decided to learn to roll cigars. Then blend cigars. Then ferment tobacco. And here we are almost 30 years later and Maya has one of the hottest new world brands in Europe. She is thriving in a place where Cuban cigars reign king. And she is winning. It is time to introduce Maya to the United States the way she deserves to be introduced: through Privada. The industry knows we are the best and most passionate cigar smokers in the industry so we are at the forefront of greatness. The cigar you are about to smoke is a masterpiece. It’s a limited size with a unique foot band that will be found nowhere else. The Flor De Selva White Rose. Welcome to perfection. These cigars came in boxes of 100 made from fresh-cut cedar where they aged for over 9 months. You best believe one of these will end up in my retirement cooler.
