Casa de Turrent....Spanish translation: dirt cheap handmades.
Mexico. You can't drink the water, but surprisingly, their tobacco ain't half bad. And thanks to a massive closeout I just scooped up at a muy aggressive price, I'm giving you a brief opportunity to try some flavor-packed handmades from the country's only respectable factory - on the cheap.
Alejandro Turrent is a fifth-generation blender responsible for the 90+ rated A. Turrent Triple Play and A. Turrent Puro Corojo. Long story short, I bought his entire Casa de Turrent line for a measly sum. A few pesos and a handshake, then BOOM: boatloads of these bundles ripe for the pickin'. Utilizing a Sumatra wrapper and 100% Mexican tobaccos, expect a mild to medium-bodied array of rich tobacco, nuts and wood. I’ll shoot straight with ya, Casa de Turrent won’t have you planning that early vacation to Mexico, but for about a buck a stick it’s pretty darn solid. All at pesos on the dollar.
