#3 from El Primer Mundo.
In 2005 Sean William’s had a dream and by 2006 he had made it a reality. His ambition and love of the leaf led to a face first dive into the deep end of the cigar industry. Williams hooked up with legendary tobacco cultivator Nestor Plasencia, located that tastiest blends in Nestor’s never ending supply, and a little over a year later, the first El Primer Mundo cigars were on the market. The third release from El Primer Mundo aims to be a more complex blend than its predecessors (Red and Blue Label), entitled Black Label.
Sporting a refined Habano Rosado Oscuro wrapper leaf encasing a Nicaraguan binder and ultra-fermented long-fillers from Condega and Esteli, Nicaragua, mixed with a pinch of Panamanian; Black Label looks good enough to eat. Right out of the gate, notes of coffee, cream, and molasses all enter the fray. Black Label proves to have ample complexity while maintaining its balance all the way to the nub. If you haven’t already jumped on the El Primer Mundo bandwagon, it’s about time to take that leap!
