The Vintage 1992 features 8 year aged Dominican & Nicaraguan filler tobaccos wrapped in a 10 year aged Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper. The blend results in a dark and pressed cigar with an even draw and burn.
The medium bodied Vintage 1992 is rich and balanced with complimentary notes of earth, toasty wood, nutty nougat and mocha. Spice from the Nicaraguan tobacco peeks out from time to time, but maintains its earthiness throughout.
The warm woodsy flavors and aromas pairs well with the spicy El Mayor Reposado Tequila. One hundred percent blue agave tequila which has been aged 9 months in white oak barrels- seven months longer than the industry standard. The aging process yields a well-balanced smooth tequila perfect for sipping or enjoyed in a cocktail. The woodsy aged cigar combined with the tequila will surely warm you up on a cold winters night. Try out this cocktail with your Vintage '92:
Combine 2 ounces El Mayor Reposado Tequila, one ounce sweet vermouth and 2 to 3 dashes orange bitters in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a cherry.
