You probably recognize the name Daniel Marshall. Yes, it’s the same guy responsible for high-end humidors that grace the homes of movie stars and former U.S. presidents, like Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Pacino, and Brad Pitt, to name drop a few. Now, he’s moving on to the next logical arena...cigars. And after teaming up with Manuel Quesada, maker of the 93-rated Casa Magna, I'd put money on his cigars catching on real quick like.
Daniel Marshall Red Label is a Nicaraguan super-premium that lives up to the hype. Dressed in a 5-year-old Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, Red Label also features a Nicaraguan binder and a bold blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers from Jalapa and Esteli. The earthy core is punctuated by notes of sweetness, and offers up hints of espresso and cocoa. Balanced, smooth, and well-aged, this handmade checks all the boxes, crosses all the T’s, and dots all the I’s.
The Daniel Marshall Red Label received a 92-point rating by Cigar Aficionado, noting: "Crafted with symmetric shoulders, this Churchill burns evenly, delivering a smoke that is rich and woody with a solid core of earth and a touch of semisweet chocolate."
