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.
“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.”
