Smooth, crisp, and creamy.
Look, I'll be the first to admit, it's easy to get caught up in the sleek n' shiny packing of some of our industry’s more 'marketable' brands. But what's most difficult is identifying a great cigar, that's a great cigar for actually being a great cigar. And I think this new guy fits the bill rather well. In a word, it's simple. But that's much of the charm - rustic packaging, a classic line up of sizes, and most importantly, a high-quality cigar that's well-blended and damn tasty.
Varina Farms debut Breakfast Blend comes dressed in a silky-smooth US-grown Connecticut Shade wrapper which conceals a rich, well-aged mixture of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Dominican long-fillers. The result is crisp, creamy blend that's brimming with notes of oak, toasty tobacco, coffee, pepper, and a touch of sweetness on the finish. Smooth all the way down and mellow to medium in body, this aptly named handmade has plenty of flavor without any unnecessary bite.
