Look, I'll be the first to admit, it's easy to get caught up in the sleek n' shiny packing of some of our industry’s more 'marketable' brands. But what's most difficult is identifying a great cigar, that's a great cigar for actually being a great cigar. And I think this new guy fits the bill rather well. In a word, it's simple. But that's much of the charm - rustic packaging, a classic line up of sizes, and most importantly, a high-quality cigar that's well-blended and damn tasty.
Varina Farms debut Breakfast Blend comes dressed in a silky-smooth US-grown Connecticut Shade wrapper which conceals a rich, well-aged mixture of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Dominican long-fillers. The result is crisp, creamy smoke that's brimming with notes of oak, toasty tobacco, coffee, pepper, and a touch of sweetness on the finish. Smooth all the way down and mild to medium in body, this aptly named handmade has plenty of flavor without any unnecessary bite.
