Grande Bold goes BIG
Back in the day, the Connecticut cigar ruled the roost. Today, Connecticuts still outsell fuller-bodied offerings, but there’s no doubt that the cigar loving world has got a taste for ligero. Yes, the full-bodied cigar has been gaining in popularity year over year thanks to great manufacturers like Oliva and A.J. Fernandez. Today, a new name enters the game with an uber-rich cigar you won’t soon forget: Micallef Grande Bold Ligero.
Let me state this up front: this cigar is bold to a ‘t.’ If that’s not your bag, this one isn’t for you… but if you want your cigar dark and sophisticated, you’re going to find a lot to love. Micallef Ligero’s oily Sumatran wrapper leaf sits overtop an Ecuadorian binder along with Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Each puff delivers tons of balanced spice with sweet undertones, and a rich level of flavor that’ll easily stand up to any bourbon or scotch you’d like to pair this with.
