The Beard below the border.
After bursting onto the market in 2010 and captivating cigar connoisseurs with three amazing blends, Tony Bellato and Craig Rossi’s premium brand is ready to take a little vacation. But this isn’t entirely a leisure trip, because La Barba’s coming back from Mexico with more than just a fresh tan and a wild story about what happened in Tijuana. Don’t worry, they won’t make you sit and watch a boring slideshow of vacation photos. All they ask is that you sit back, relax, and light up their newest blend, the La Barba Ricochet Cru Mexi-Sol.
Bellato describes the flavor of the Mexi-Sol as being similar to a left bank Bordeaux wine, exhibiting a “definitive spicy minerality, and a touch of soft sweetness.” This unique and exquisite profile is achieved through the use of a sun-grown Mexican wrapper overtop an Indonesian binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Pennsylvania. The La Barba Ricochet Mexi-Sol is just the latest example of Bellato’s blending genius, so grab yourself a box before the awards start stacking up!
