A gallant blend from a Cuban master.
Crafting cigars seems easy, just some rolled-up, dried tobacco leaves. But there’s so much more at play when it comes to navigating the right balance, conjuring up the right flavors from dried out plant material. While there are a whole host of blends and blenders, a few really stand out and offer something beyond the pale. Enter Felix Mesa, not yet a household name, but he soon will be. This Cuban born master blender uses the lessons learned from his rich heritage in the Cuban cigar industry and is already making a name for himself with his El Galan cigars.
Hailing from Mesa’s Esteli, Nicaragua factory, El Galan Reserva Especial is a full-bodied box-pressed beauty. A Nicaraguan puro, this blend features a hearty Habano wrapper over a core of choice long-fillers delivering a boatload of flavor and nuance. Perfectly constructed, you’ll be embraced with notes of spice, pepper, cedar, and leather with the profile remaining balanced and complex. If you love Nicaraguan cigars or are a fan of the Habano wrapper, give this delicious cigar a go-around and we’re sure you’ll be coming back to the trough repeatedly.
