Carefully handcrafted in Esteli, Nicaragua, Ave Maria utilizes a flawless Habano sun-grown wrapper from Ecuador overtop a well-aged blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers to create an extremely balanced, flavorful, and refined experience. It's medium-bodied and smooth throughout, but brimming with rich notes of earth, leather, spices, and sweet tobacco - all delivered in elegant fashion. A truly complete cigar on every level.

“Read the reviews on Ave Maria and ordered. Waited 2+ months since it was sold out/back ordered. When it arrived, I couldn't wait to smoke one, so I smoked one right out of the box. Meh. Rested the rest, smoked another, meh. Smoked another one yesterday...meh. Average smoke, don't see what all the hype is about.”

“Wrappers were coming off the cigars. Very disappointing.”

“Such an excellent smoke packed with excellent flavor. Got a few cracked wrappers but doesn't take anything away from the great cigar”

“Awesome doesn't come close to describing this cigar from the great construction to the complex flavors creamy and coffee stand out, great draw, great even burn, nice ash, well rolled, very smooth, already had three! trying to save some for special occasion but that is going to be a greater challenge than I anticipated. They can only get better with time.”
WM of West Covina, CA
“Not as good as I thought they'd be for all the hype. That being said, I'm comparing these puros to Alec Bradleys so....I'll keep looking.”
