A handsome Honduran handmade
You may have heard of Leaf by Oscar for their clever packaging — each cigar is wrapped in a raw tobacco leaf after it’s done being rolled. But if you’ve never tried one, let me assure you: this is not just a marketing gimmick! The tobacco perfectly encloses each cigar, protecting it from any sort of damage in the same way that cellophane would. Unwrap the leaf, and you’ll find a flawless presentation underneath.
For the Sumatra version of this fan-favorite boutique brand, blend master Oscar Valladares utilized a, you-guessed-it, Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper overtop the usual Honduran binder and long-filler. Coming in just a tad above medium-bodied, Leaf by Oscar Sumatra delivers a full-flavored mixture of natural tobacco, citrus, and black and white pepper. It’s a most worthy addition to their portfolio, and one I can easily recommend to any lover of boutique cigars.
