A Solera in a tuxedo
If you’re scratching your head, thinking you’ve seen this cigar before there’s good news — you’re not going crazy! At least, not in this case. Aging Room Solera has been popping up around the cigar industry for years now, but it’s finally receiving a national release in four different blends, starting with Solera Maduro. A rich, medium to full-bodied cigar from Rafael Nodal and Aging Room, Solera Maduro is a treat for any boutique cigar lover.
Handmade in the Dominican Republic, this cigar features Dominican binder and long-fillers, with a surprisingly smooth Mexican San Andres maduro wrapper up top. Beyond that, Solera Maduro gets its name from the aging process — one it shares with Spanish brandy, beer, and wine. The result is a remarkably dense core of flavors with sweetness, dark fruit, and a black pepper spice delivering on every puff.
