Mario Palomino has a storied past. One that would take hours to fully discuss. So I'll just keep it simple. Once a highly sought after Jamaican brand, Mario Palomino has been off the market for quite a few years now. Today, it's back and better than ever. Boasting a striking similarity to the original blend, you'll find the same smooth, mellow flavor you've been missing all these years.
Hailing from its new home in Nicaragua, each Mario Palomino comes dressed to impress, outfitted in a silky Connecticut wrapper. This leaf houses a core of Jamaican and Nicaraguan seco and viso long-fillers, creating a fairly tame yet reminiscent profile. Creamy, balanced and distinct, the mild to medium-bodied smoke remains cool and straightforward. I'll admit it's not the most complex cigar I've had. But it's no doubt a great mild offering catered toward those seeking a cigar a bit out of the ordinary.
