- The Cellar Reserve Platinum is the first Nicaraguan blend from the Cellar Reserve Family of Cigars. This full flavor, medium body cigar has a lot of sweetness and nuttiness right off the start. The Ecuadorian Wrapper pairs perfectly with the Nicaraguan binder and fillers for an exquisite and complex smoke.
- 5 x 58
- Double Robusto
Coming off the success of the Dominican crafted Cellar Reserve series, Kaizad Hansotia’s newest addition to the family is the Cellar Reserve 12 Year. This is the first all Nicaraguan blend in the Cellar Reserve lineup.
The hand selected tobaccos from Estelí, Condega and Jalapa Valley regions in Nicaragua are aged up to 12 years, the binder from Nicaragua is then masterfully pigtailed- rolled in an Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper creating a rich, complex smoking experience.
Notes of classic Nicaraguan tobacco and red pepper hit the palate right off the bat then blossom into flavors of chocolate and cedar. The medium to full-bodied Cellar Reserve Platinum 12 Year never overpowers the senses, yet never disappoints those seeking a full flavored smoking experience.
Paired with a woodsy, smoky Scotch or good bourbon, the Cellar Reserve will release its’ robust essences very well.
Need a drink to warm you up like you're sitting by a campfire?... Even if you're actually stuck inside cause it's freaking freezing out? Bring the outdoors in with a warm, woodsy smoky cocktail. The Swedish Flame is delicious with a Gurkha Cellar Reserve 12 Year.
The Swedish Flame
2 oz. of your favorite bourbon
A small, fresh sprig of rosemary
.5 Ounces of Woodford Reserve Bourbon Barrel Smoked Simple Syrup
First, pour your measure of simple syrup into your glass of ice. Next, pour in 2 ounces of bourbon over the syrup and ice. Take your fresh rosemary sprig and use it like a spoon and stir your drink to mix the syrup and bourbon. Once you've mixed generously, you can leave the sprig in the drink.
Sit by the fireplace, warm up and enjoy! Or, sit around a campfire and relax and revel!
