Every so often, a great cigar company will do a short run of a great cigar. There are many reasons they might do this. Maybe they have some cigar tobacco that doesn’t go with anything else they’re currently offering. In some cases, they may have found a hidden cache of tobacco that they didn’t remember putting away for aging, and they may be looking to utilize it in a special run. In other cases, someone may have come up with an amazing blend, and they plan to do it just once to showcase their capabilities to make fantastic cigars, but it’s outside of what their brand is known for so they’ll only do it in limited quantities. Whatever the case may be, it is almost always a cigar that you want to try.
And if Ernesto Perez-Carrillo gets a special blend into his head that he wants to make, you know that it is likely to be a great product. After all, he’s the guy who makes sure that you are going to be able to find La Gloria Cubana products on every humidor shelf in this country; it’s obvious that he knows a thing or two about making a good cigar that you will be able to buy either in person or via your favorite online cigar shop.
This Nicaraguan Edicion Super Robusto is no slouch, and is well worth the price. There are about 2500 boxes of it that were made, and the boxes hold ten cigars each, so you’re going to want to snatch one up if you ever find one. The cigar is delicious, with a wrapper grown in the sun and soil of Nicaragua, as well as tobaccos from the premier growing regions of the country. This leads to a spicy and flavorful cigar that you will be sure to enjoy, but only if you find one soon!
