Check your EGO at the door!
Beginning in 1997, Felix Assouline has been heavily involved in the cigar industry. Originally running a few retail shops down in Florida, Felix has taken his knowledge of the industry and applied it to running his own boutique brand. Now, over a dozen years later, Assouline has numerous blends handmade for him in Danli, Honduras, including today’s choice selection: the EGO Red Habano ’98.
Up top, you’ll find a gorgeous red Habano Criollo ’98 wrapper leaf overtop prime Indonesian binder, and Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Presented in a soft box-press, these tobaccos are allowed to marry together most harmoniously in the aging room before arriving at your doorstep. Toasting the foot on the EGO Red, you’ll find bold notes of coffee, earth, and a hint of black pepper on the finish. A true up-and-coming brand, EGO Red is a great choice for the cigar lover who wants to try something new and exciting.
