The one, the only, the masterpiece.
Tony Bellato’s La Barba brand has spent the better part of the last decade picking up steam and carving out a tidy chunk of the premium cigar market for themselves, and now they’re running full-speed towards legend status. The now-iconic straight razor that graces their bands is a clear indicator of a great cigar experience to come, but the newest line from the certified sommelier’s line up is the follow-up to a limited edition released in 2016, and is the first name in their portfolio to eschew the razor imagery.
For the La Barba One & Only, Bellato sourced tobaccos aged for an average of 13 years, and expertly blended them into a hefty 6.5” x 54 double toro size, bursting at the seams with flavor, nuance, and complexity. The fillers come from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Pennsylvania, and the leathery Habano wrapper hails from the cloud-covered fields of Ecuador. The imagery is a bit bizarre but striking, to say the least, but the cigars inside are expertly crafted, and will please even the pickiest of connoisseurs. I’ll bet that you’re going to like this cigar, but you’ll want to try it quick. Because of the rare tobacco used, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
