A Collaboration of Legendary Proportions
The Gomez Sanchez name in cigars is one you may not know, but they’ve been in the game for quite some time. Back in 1934 in Havana, Cuba, Don Pedro Gomez began his family’s legacy in the premium cigar game… today, their name lives on through his grandsons, Edel and Joel. But as anyone who’s been around cigars long enough can tell you, the past matters, and with the Gomez Sanchez Leyenda, Micallef cigars honors their legacy.
Offered in tapered figurado vitolas, the Leyenda is a most impressive cigar to behold. And I’m not just talking about the unique coffin that holds each handmade. Underneath the three bands, you’ll find a five-year-aged Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf that’s rustic in all the right ways. This is joined by a Nicaraguan binder and a tri-country blend of Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Honduran long-fillers, all aged 5 years pre-roll as well. Toasting the foot, you’ll find a classic Cuban profile, featuring a nice strength, rounded out by naturally sweet tobacco notes, black pepper, and a roasted nuttiness.
Good news! Micallef Gomez Sanchez 1RA Generacion has received an awesome 92-point rating, noting: "A long figurado with a thin, tapered head. Its lush draw delivers notes of chocolate, almonds and creamy vanilla around a core of rich wood. The finish hints of coffee."
