Mellow gets Intenso
If there’s a poster-child for consistency in the cigar industry, it’s Gispert. The original 90-rated blend is mellow, smooth, and has been around since the original Cuban cigar version pre-Revolution. But now, a new blend emerges with the Gispert name. Gispert Intenso. This handmade cigar is the first Nicaraguan addition to the Gispert brand. And it’s a dark, full-bodied one at that.
Blended by the Grupo de Maestros and A.J. Fernandez, Intenso is made with the medium to full-bodied cigar lover in mind. Each cigar that passed through our office burnt without a problem, dishing out leather, rich chocolate, and sweet spice. The blend is a simple recipe. A Connecticut broadleaf wrapper is met with Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers. But the Grupo de Maestros an AJ are some of the best in the biz, making Gispert Intenso anything but typical.
