Shave n’ a haircut, with a puff or two on the side!
When WSET-certified sommelier Tony Bellato and his best friend Craig Rossi decided to create a cigar company, they spent two years at the drawing board crafting their inaugural release, the La Barba Red. The response was better than they could have hoped for, and with Caldwell handling distribution, their popularity exploded and fans yelled for more. Bellato heard, and more is exactly what he delivered with the release of the La Barba Purple.
This line extension was carefully blended with assistance from Henderson Ventura and Robert Caldwell, two masters of the cigar industry with plenty of experience and expertise to go around. The cigar consists of an Ecuadorian HVA Habano wrapper overtop a Dominican corojo binder, but the real magic is in the filler. Among corojo and HVA habano is a special, rare Dominican leaf called Carbonell. The profile is a delectable combination of black pepper, wood, and toast, with just a hint of natural sweetness in the background. You’ll find excellent construction & a sharp burn, and a medium bodied profile that will hold your attention to the very end. Keep your shavin’ razor sharp and your taste buds sharper with the La Barba Purple!
