Rake in the flavor
The Rake takes its name from a poker term describing the cut taken by a card room for operating a poker game. There is a common theme running through MoyaRuiz’s cigar lines, a love of ‘the game,’ whether it’s La Jugada, a term borrowed from dominos or The Rake taken from poker. With a growing arsenal of highly rated blends, MoyaRuiz is bringing the juice with The Rake.
This ace in the hole hails from the La Zona factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. The packaging for The Rake is an eye-catching and modern, with the band being inspired by a speakeasy peephole commonly seen in doors of underground poker rooms. Coming draped in an exquisite Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over a blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers which contain 4 ligeros, The Rake is going all-in with full-bodied flavor. There is plenty of complexity present with pepper, mocha, fruit, and spice raising the ante on your palate without being harsh or overwhelming. Make room in your humidor for The Rake, a real royal flush of a cigar.
