Pinar del Rio’s second release of 2012 utilizes some of the oldest tobacco on hand in the factory, which explains what makes it so good. This medium-bodied smoke opens perfectly with a natural sweetness, then swiftly follows up with a kick of spice that will drive your palate wild. Serie Privada is available in two Ecuadorian wrappers – Habano or Maduro – so go ahead and take your pick. Created as a tribute to Abe Flores, a master blender responsible for a host of 90+ rated lovelies, this is one stunning handmade that will get your juices flowing.
“Wow what a cigar...I know it's pricey, But what great balance and flavor....I am reviewing the 6/54 toro maduro. I find it to be medium full. With some very nice tobacco and maduro flavors .”

“Excellent construction and draw with an above average burn requiring few touchups. Same voluminous amounts of smoke output as the Maduro version. The smoke is thick on the palate with a creamy texture but slightly dry. Solid medium strength with medium to full flavors. Flavors of cream, bread and honey with light floral notes. Unlike the Maduro, becomes smoother in the second half with a medium length finish of soft caramel and black pepper.”

“Very easy to light. Excellent construction, draw and burn. Voluminous smoke output that is slightly oily with a thick mouth feel. Medium to full strength and medium to full flavors. Flavors of sweet black pepper, coffee and cocoa with a medium length finish of aged tobacco, leather and very little spice. A very smooth cigar with rich flavors and increased strength in second half.”
