Puros Indios Viejo feels like the good old days. Fittingly, Viejo means "old" in Spanish....and these puppies are literally just that. Featuring aging you simply can’t buy - these sticks were resting in Rolando Reyes’ aging rooms in Danli for, according to PI president Carlos Diez, "literally 6 years." The blend is composed of top-grade Sumatra wrappers and lush Jamastran long-leaf fillers. So why did Puros Indios release the hounds all at once? To beat the April 1, 2009 SCHIP cigar tax deadline, Rolando wanted to get every cigar in his factory on a boat to America (insert Neil Diamond music here) by March. You and me, well son, we’ll enjoy the benefits of this exodus....at least for a while.
Look, I know guys are split 50/50 on Puros Indios: some love them, some don’t. But if you’re in the first camp, jump on this now because for one, the price is shaq diesel and for two, the age on this cigar delivers an unmatched experience that’s at once bold and elegant. A medium bodied handmade with an earthy core complemented by a pleasant touch of sweetness. Smooth from beginning to end.
