Feedback Wanted On Aged Cigars

Posted on Saturday, July 19, 2014 in Informational

Since most of the aged stash I sent out to you guys a few weeks ago were one off’s, I never had the opportunity to try them in the aged state. I have a selection here that I kept, and will get to sometime but for the most part everything was a mystery to me (and others). It would be really cool if you guys that got it all could post here with your thoughts and comments as you smoke the various sticks to let us know what you thought and see what blends are more worth aging than others. There’s absolutely no way to tell what will happen to a cigar over that time, so you all are the testers for everyone else!

Especially for those few that said they had fresh versions of what they got, it would be very interesting to see a comparison. Thanks and I’m sure everyone else would really be interested in your thoughts as well!

Nomad C-276Press Release: Nomad Cigar Co. Releases much-anticipated C-276

Estelí, Nicaragua (July 18, 2014) – Nomad Cigar Company is pleased to announce the release of the Nomad C-276 at this year’s IPCPR in Las Vegas.

The C-276 is a full flavored complex blend featuring five different filler tobaccos (with two Ligeros).

It also marks the second full production cigar that Nomad has done in Estelí at Tobacalera AJ Fernandez.

The C-276 rounds out Nomad’s portfolio of offerings and joins its place on the shelf with the Dominican Classic, Nicaraguan S-307, and the released-early-in-2014 Dominican Connecticut Fuerte.

The C-276 also marks Fred Rewey’s first venture into using Ometepe tobacco in a blend.

“When I was blending the C-276 I approached it in layers. I kept trying to add layers and layers of flavor but didn’t want to overpower any one tobacco in the process. At one point I was struggling to add a final component that I couldn’t quite nail down. It was suggested to me that I visit Ometepe and check out that tobacco – it was the best addition to this blend I could make – it just came together,” said Rewey.

Press Release: Chinnock Cellars Cigars Announces “Cremoir”

Posted on Friday, July 18, 2014 in News

20x16_CHINNOCKposter (1) (2)

Cremoir [French pronunciation: crem-war] meaning creamy, it also means the “the best” or the “cream of the crop”. Cream is the richest part of the milk and rises to the top. The noun ‘cream’ has been used to mean the best of any collective entity since the 16th century.

The French use this word to describe the creamy or buttery flavors in a fine wine like a Chardonnay. This creaminess comes from the MLF (Malo-Lactic Fermentation) process that follows the primary yeast fermentation in winemaking. MFL produces a creaminess in white wines and softens red wines. This Cremoir (Creaminess) can be found as a major flavor component in fine cigars as well.

These Cremoir cigars were hand made by experienced rollers in the Compania Hondurena De Tabacos factory in Danli, Honduras. They were blended by Master Blender – Adin Perez and were made in the traditional Cuban method of hand rolling and finishing with a unique triple cap. The result is a medium body cigar with bold creamy flavors and a nutty finish.

Strength: Medium

Filler: To be announced
Binder: To be announced
Wrapper: To be announced

Sizes:

• Toro 6 X 52 (10 Qty Box)
• Torpedo 6 X 52 (10 Qty Box)

I hope you enjoy our Limited Edition Cremoir!

Press Release: 1502 Releases The Nicaragua

Posted on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 in News

1502_nicaraguaMiami, Florida, July 16, 2014

Global Premium Cigars is pleased to announce the release of its newest cigar, the 1502 Nicaragua. Global Premium Cigars is a tobacco company which is proud of its Nicaraguan heritage. The new cigar continues the company’s tradition of excellence and is the only cigar in the 1502 cigars line that is 100% pure Nicaraguan tobacco.

Nicaragua is one of only two countries in the world which can produce cigars entirely from their tobacco. The 1502 Nicaragua epitomizes this birthright, as it is made from tobacco from all four regions of Nicaragua: Esteli, Condega, Jalapa, Ometepe.

“This cigar was created for my newborn son. So that he never forgets his roots – 100% Nicaraguan,” said Enrique Sanchez, President of Global Premium Cigars.

The 1502 Nicaragua is packaged in a golden wrapper with a white band. It is a medium to medium-plus cigar that is stronger than the 1502 Line’s Emerald. The cigar will be available in the Robusto vitola, measuring 5 X 50, and in boxes of 30 cigars, box pressed. Retailers are urged to order them in time for their customers.
