The Flor de San Andres, en la noche.
When you think of Mexico, you probably think of Mariachi, Pina Coladas on the beach, and that one embarrassing thing you did on spring break in Cancun (don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone). But when us folks at CI think of Mexico, we think of the delicious, feisty wrapper leaves grown in San Andres. And those of us in the know reach for a Rocky Patel Flor de San Andres when we want the best of what the deep, dark leaves can offer. The only problem for me was that sometimes they weren’t quite heavy enough for enjoying later in the day. Well Rocky must be a mind-reader, because he brought us exactly what I was looking for with the Flor de San Andres Black.
Brimming with notes of dark chocolate, leather, spice, and deep earth, this cigar is definitely on the medium to full-bodied spectrum. The fillers are all Nicaraguan, the wrapper is a special San Andres leaf called Morrón, the body is medium-full, and the experience is out of this world. If you’re a fan of bold profiles and great construction, join the dark side and Flor de San Andres Black a try.
