Brasil… Spanish for “Brazil”
Like fine meats at a Brazilian steakhouse, this handmade from Don Rafael delivers a full plate of flavors that just don’t stop. Yes, the second stop on the Don Rafael world tour is sure to be a favorite for those who like their cigars hearty. Add in the fact that you’re getting filet quality at burger shack pricing, and you’ve got a no-brainer on your hands.
Let’s get the first question out of the way here — why is there an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper on a cigar named Brasil. Well, dig in a bit deeper and you’ll find you answer. The Brazilian leaves in this blend come from the binder and filler, the right place for them to shine through. They add a nice “oomph” to the otherwise mellow wrapper leaf, resulting in a medium-bodied experience that’s got a perfect yin-yang of spicy, sweet, and tangy. Try Don Rafael Brasil for yourself, and you’ll quickly realize why they’re flying outta here so fast.
