Palo Prieto

The other day my friend was telling me that the age of boutique blends is over, and I was able to stop him in his tracks with two little words: Palo. Prieto. Yes, this small-batch handmade proves that the glory days are far from gone, and that boutique offerings still deserve a front and center seat in the limelight. And with over 125 years of cigar-rolling prowess spanning back three generations to the heyday of Cuba, saying that the Aguilar family knows a thing or two about tobacco is an understatement. It may be difficult to stand out from the crowd, but this fine specimen does so....with ease.

Palo Prieto opens with a dazzling, visually flawless Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that’s positively bursting with hand-selected Nicaraguan Corojo and Criollo long-fillers, all wrapped up in a Dominican Corojo binder. The rich and creamy core is complemented by feisty notes of leather and spices. So like I was telling my friend, the small-batch glory days are still in full swing, and this is one boutique blend that won’t get lost in the sauce.

Customer Reviews of “Palo Prieto”
“WOW!!! I when for the unknown and I hit the jackpot. Definitely, in life you have to try new stuff........What a nice surprise. A complete package: Presentation, quality, draw and flavor.....last but least, Price! Thanks CI for having great cigars and great prices.”
IM of Miramar, FL
“After allowing these beauty's to sit in my humidor, I decided it was time to try one, boy what a wonderful cigar. The first third was leathery with notes of earth,a little dry on the finish, the second third rounded out the first with a little spice entering the fray, by the last third it was a well rounded beaut that had me thinking of smoking another,reminded me of the first opus x I smoked but a little drier on the finish. I will definitely order more, a very nice boutique cigar. SALUTE”

“i was impressed with this cigar and too attractive to be sleeved, great construction and easy draw with a lot of different flavors and tons of medium bodied smoke.had two and both had great finish.where have the aguillar's been?”
CB of Saint Petersburg, FL
“Outstanding cigar at an exceptional value. The puro has an excellent draw with a sharp spicy cedar snap. Head to foot the cigar is consistent with a an excellent taste and aroma. The presentation gold wrapper, draw cord (to get the first cigar out), and overall texture of the cigar is superb. Well said in categorizing this as an old world cigar...as it is.”
RR of MIAMI, FL
“I am not as enthusiastic as the previous customers with this cigar. The cigar is lightly packed and not particularly tasty. It has a young tobacco taste. Definitely not smooth. I purchased a box based on previous reviews and had high hopes. I do believe that some age in the humidor will significantly improve this cigar. The packaging is top notch, but that is the high point IMO.”
JM of ocala, FL
“What a beautiful cigar. It's a beauty where the taste is as pleasing as how this cigar looks. It grabs you with a full hit at the first draw, and it's a lovely ride the rest of the way.”
