This is a special monthly feature where I will spotlight some of my favorite boutiques! This month the honor goes to Blanco Cigars! It’s always cool for me living in the #2 cigar capitol city in the world, Tampa. While Miami is #1, we still have a huge number of local manufacturers and stores to take advantage of. Blanco relocated down from Chicago a few years ago enriching Clearwater with another quality offering. Like other mom & pop shops they are a small, dedicated family-only business that have shown consistent growth over the years in both sales and most importantly quality. Not one to create endless blends on a whim, they have always catered to those with more of an old-school classic taste. When they release a new stick it has been only after years of testing, aging and feedback. While you don’t see many new offerings what you do see is often a sales leader. Like some others in my wheelhouse I was introduced to Blanco due to my photography business, doing my first shoot for them years ago. It took me quite a while to sample most of their line and like most others what I found was some I didn’t care for, some I liked and some I loved! My personal favorite happens to be the Nine Lancero, and I have given away dozens from my personal stash so others can try them. So far just about everyone has loved them – please testify if that means you! Coincidentally (no one knows about these features ahead of time) I see Dave Blanco has recently put out a Lancero 5 pack so obviously I would highly recommend anyone start there to sample them 🙂 Their latest line is the Liga Familia line offering more traditional ‘Cuban’ flavors and I can attest to the smooth and rich flavors coming out of that blend. I’m not a Cuban expert by any means so I can’t say what exact flavors they were going after but the blend hits with some of the most pleasing examples I have experienced so far. So definitely at least check them out, and if you & I share similar tastes I know you’ll love the Nine Lancero 🙂
