In the fertile San Andres tobacco valley of Mexico, the tobacco of gods thrives. The Mayans of old, they knew the secrets of the earth and buried their tobacco, a tale to be unraveled another time. But today, the San Andres Oscuro Maduro wrapper reigns as king. It weaves flavors reminiscent of the sacred chocolates savored by Central America's indigenous tribes. As this cigar ignites, it kindles a dance of spice before yielding unexpected symphonies of vanilla, hazelnut, and the deepest, darkest coffee. A delightful companion to follow a hearty meal. Disappointment finds no refuge here.
So exquisite is this cigar that I christened it with the name of a beloved banned tome, "The Catcher in the Rye." The 5.5 x 54 long robusto awaits, a mere $49.99, a bargain that includes the gift of free shipping. But heed this warning – guard it closely, for your companions, once they taste, will hunger for more.
