Reviving the legacy
Abe Flores makes tons of fantastic cigars in his Dominican Republic based factory (home of PDR cigars), but perhaps the finest blends to leave the building are the A. Flores AFRs. Only rolled by Abe’s four most-skilled torcedors, and utilizing the finest, hand-selected tobacco leaves, AFR-75 truly represents one of the most respectable blends on the market. Today, we’re looking at the Claro version of this masterpiece.
Utilizing a lighter-colored Mexican wrapper leaf, AFR-75 Claro features a Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 binder and long-filler leaves from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and the United States. Delivering a mixture of cream, cedar, and a slightly fruity note, AFR-75 Claro is delicious down to the nub. If you’ve ever enjoyed one of PDR’s cigars, you owe it to yourself to try the AFR-75 Claro ASAP.
