PDR Cigars operates out of a factory in Tamboril Dominican Republic and produces some of the best boutique cigars in the industry combining modern technology with old-world Cuban techniques. They create some of the most richly flavored blends on the market using complex rolling techniques to packing more tobacco in each cigar, while maintaining a consistently desirable draw. The first cigar in PDR’s ultra-premium Connecticut Valley Reserve line, the maduro, has had great success, receiving a 91-rating, as well as constant demand here at CI. Now enter Flores y Rodriguez Connecticut Valley Reserve Azul.
The incredibly complex and full-bodied cigar is draped in a pleasing Connecticut Broadleaf Rosado wrapper. A Jalapa binder and complex blend of Dominican Corojo and Nicaraguan Condega Criollo long-fillers create an experience unlike any other. Have a seat and take some time to enjoy the slightly peppery start followed up with espresso, dark chocolate, berries, and a satisfying natural sweetness, you won’t regret it.
