$10.00 – $200.00
Hand made in the Dominican Republic at Tabacalera El Hoyito, these cigars incorporate Dominican Piloto Cubano in the Ligero, Filler and Binder with an aged Ecuadorean Habano or Maduro wrapper. At the start, we were trying to recreate the transition from classic Cuban cigars to Cuban seed Dominicans and these are an expression of that journey. Named after a famous bull that no one could ride, these cigars are ready to enjoy in any setting.
Medium Body/Medium Strength – Pre-light this cigar is elegant with a smooth/tan wrapper reminiscent of saddle leather. At first draw, you’ll notice the flavors of Tamboril. A background of field and leather married to a hint of black pepper (there is more pepper here than you might expect from a Dominican cigar), citrus, and floral essence. As you hit the second third the pepper fades slightly while white oak, toast, and coffee join the party. Some even taste a touch of white sugar. This cigar might get lost in a barrel-proof bourbon but finds a ready home when paired with anything 86 proof or lower. For the heartier bunch, this goes well with coffee and a view of the sunrise.
