Abe Flores has been studying the mastery of cigar making for years, and it’s evident with the cigar at hand. The third addition to the Gran Reserva line, dubbed Desflorado, makes use of a technique that redirects the nutrients gained from sunlight straight to the tobacco plant's leaf, by cutting off the flower off of the plant. Desflorado literally translates to deflower, and the technique’s result is immediately evident in Desflorado’s medium-bodied full-flavor.
Strapped with a pristine Ecuadorian Connecticut seed wrapper and dual binders from Nicaragua and Ecuador, Desflorado is packed with supremely fermented long-fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. This 3-country cocktail coats the palate with enjoyable notes of creamy cedar, raisin, and a very subtle spice. Try one for yourself to see just how much the Desflorado can enhance your cigar experience.
Note: A. Flores Gran Reserva has recently undergone a packaging update. We currently have a mix of old and new packaging, but the blend is exactly the same.
