With the World Series in the wings, expect nothing less than a bang-up bunch of cigars to relax you during the playoffs. With new and old talent in your bag, rooting for a champion has never been easier.
Our first big hitter out of the dugout is 5 Vegas. 5 Vegas (cin-ko vegas) was originally a legendary brand founded in Cuba in 1890. Today the 5 Vegas tradition of excellence is being continued with a blend of exceptional richness in taste and aroma, not far from the original qualities vested in the 5 Vegas of the past. This monthís 5 Vegas Gran Reserva is certain to impress the connoisseur with its superb balance and ultra-smooth flavors.
Our second feature of the month boasts a 90 rating. A rating such as this is not given out to companies lacking a long-standing standard of excellence and decades of experience. Cano A. Ozgener, the president of Nashville-based CAO International, has been in the tobacco industry for 30 years, an accomplishment certainly worth celebrating. Today CAO is producing not only some of the finest blends, but also some of the most innovative cigars in the market. This monthís CAO Gold Corona is a small tribute to their success and a token of our appreciation for their quality cigar production and service.
Our third feature of the month is a new-comer to our club, but certainly not to the industry. Debuting in 1993, Las Cabrillas celebrated the explorers of the New World in their blend of Nicaraguan and Mexican filler. The Las Cabrillas line is comprised of nine sizes each named after a New World Explorer. This monthís Las Cabrillas Cortez is a well-balanced robusto from Honduras. Itís perfect for a smooth sailing along the Mexican coast or a comfortable chair.
Our fourth feature of the month is a tough cigar to come by. Itís the only cigar brand that is rated in practically every issue of Cigar Aficionado, but has never had any advertisements in the magazine. You will not find a web site online or a well-designed brochure in a smoke shop either. So how did we get in touch with them? We called information. Sure enough PIO VI was listed in Little Havana, Florida. They may not have all the basics of a modern day business, but they do produce some outstanding cigars. This month's PIO VI Torpedo is produced in a four year old factory in Little Havana Miami by Master Cuban hand-rollers that use their knowledge and skills from a time when Cuba produced their best cigars. We hope you can capture the same love and passion that goes into their creation.
We can never say enough about the Sosa family of cigars. Just when we thought their Piramide would be their greatest creation ever, they introduce a cigar that reminds us of the 93 rated Cuban Cohiba Siglo I. Weighing in at 4.25"x 40, the Sosa Exclusive Series Petit Cetro packs a mouthful of spicy smoke and delicious flavors. Enjoy today and re-order quickly!
