El Baton

El Baton....the original nickel stick.

​Introduced in 1914 and rolled with genuine Cuban tobacco leaves, this legendary little gem was the pick of the litter, especially at a nickel a piece. The good news is that the brand is back! With a new blend, a 93-rating, and a Top 25 appearance under its belt, El Baton is beginning the assent again.

El Baton is a Nicaraguan puro being offered by J.C. Newman. Complex and full in body, this cigar features carefully selected long-fillers harvested from the highly fertile soils of Nicaragua. It’s bold and potent, featuring generous notes of nuts, coffee, spice, raisins, and sweetness. Well-made, and steeped in tradition, this is one handmade you won’t want to miss.

Customer Reviews of “El Baton”
I bought this from a discount bin at my local cigar shop; It became my favorite cigar. Oily, rich, creamy flavor and a burn that is perfect from start to finish. When my shop stopped carrying this I went on a quest to find something similar, and it proved to be difficult. I still keep coming back to this cigar. For fans of Brickhouse and Punch, give this beauty a try.

My co-worker likes to herf, so I traded a Gurkha Beauty for an el baton belicoso. The el baton was absolutely dynamite..first third: toasted foot and behold, a nice spicy flavor magnified on the retro hale...second third: mellowed out to a smooth wonderful flavour...returning to spicy for first half of final third. Finishing mellow & mild to the nub. Very good cigar. Buy some, toast em, & smoke em. You will like this cigar. Even burn, no relights; satisfying first draw to finish.

Yes, Yes!! El Baton is freaky Good. My 6/60 was all I didn't expect. Closer to full than medium. Lots of beautiful tasty smoke. I smoke a lot of good cigars, this one has become one of my favorites. Will absolutely buy again. Construction was on, burn even. And I'm not a big fan of 60 rings, however this one has got a great feel. The end will warm a bit (last inch) not enough for me to abandon. Enjoyed it all!! Thanks Again CI
