La Flor Dominicana was awarded with #1 Cigar of 2016 honors and a well-deserved 96-rating! Here’s what the experts had to say, “First impressions are bold and savory with strong notes of hickory and leather. But it continues to take on a complex spiciness of saffron and cumin as well as a slight tangy note that brings the strength and spice together quite gracefully—and it only gets better with every puff.”
Box pressed robusto and our best ACID release since Kuba Kuba. ACID 20 is wrapped in a lush, toothy Mexican San Andres capa, with ultra-premium Indonesian binder and filler leaves from Nicaragua. Finally, it’s blessed with an infusion that is truly unique, and worthy of the double decade title. The smoking experience will hit every region of your palate and your soul, a true masterpiece.
Macanudo Inspirado Palladium is a complex five-country blend that harnesses the time-honored tercio aging technique to deliver a truly exquisite smoking experience. The tercio process is an old Cuban method rarely used today due to the considerable time and labor required to build the bales and wrap them in the bark of the majestic Royal Palm tree. The bark forms a tighter seal, trapping in moisture and retaining the tobacco’s natural taste characteristics.
There’s a new CAO line and unlike most CAO cigars, it’s made in the Dominican Republic, rather than Central America. Dubbed CAO Session, the new line is a collaboration between brand ambassador and blender Rick Rodriguez and Yuri Guillen, factory manager of General Cigar Dominicana.
