This months selection offers one of the best mixes of color, size, and country of origin. Our first selection comes the Flor de Florez line of cigars. The Florez Florez Cabinet Selection from Nicaragua redefines the term "smooth." This cigar is sure to be one the smoothest cigars you will ever smoke. In fact, our panelists came up with a new slogan for the Florez manufactures: "Youve tried all the rest, now try the smoothest." It may not rhyme, but its true.
Although a new name to the industry, the Hurricanos Corona Gorda is produced by the makers of Thomas Hinds. Despite the Hurricanos having the cheeziest label in the marketplace, its quality is in line with the best of the Thomas Hinds cigars. We promise that this beautiful maduro cigar with a lousy band will surprise you.
Most of us are familiar with the Jose Marti cigars being produced in Honduras, however, some of their best cigars are being produced in Nicaragua. The Jose Marti Robusto from Nicaragua recently received an 88 rating in Cigar Aficionado magazine. Without giving it all away, we think youll see that this is one cigar that lives up to its rating.
Alas, we have accumulated enough inventory to feature one of the few non-Cuban cigars that has ever received a 93 rating from Cigar Aficionado magazine. Unfortunately during this time its rating has dropped, however the Licenciados Toro still provides a unique flavor thats worth smoking one after the other.
Lately weve been wondering if Onyx is still in business. We can never seem to score any significant quantities. Well, I guess its no surprise. The Onyx 750 maduro is one delicious cigar. Smoke this to the nub and youll see that these are truly, "precious" black gems.
