This is the third blend from the Sam Leccia camp, and appropriately it was released on Cinco de Mayo, a nod to the fact that “luchador” means “wrestler” in Spanish. This is Sam Leccia Luchador, and it will hit your palate like a folding chair to the dome. So much complexity is packed into every cigar it’s almost unbelievable, but once you try one, you may find yourself chanting, "Lu-cha-dor....Lu-cha-dor."
This highly exotic handmade from Sam Leccia employs a never-seen-before mix of tobacco leaves, and consequently you can plan on being hit hard with a highly unique flavor profile that vacillates wildly from spicy to sweet and everywhere in between. This 5-country blend includes long-fillers from Pennsylvania, Honduras, and Nicaragua, surrounded by an Ecuadorian Habano binder and delivers bold notes of espresso, pepper and tobacco. The cherry on this sundae is the San Andres wrapper, which contributes generously to the medium to full-bodied experience.
