Each year the regional releases for each Cuban cigar market are looked forward to with anticipation. The Canadian Regional market tends to be one of those high on the list. With extremely high taxes, a cigar needs to be exceptional to play in this market.
It was produced in 2010 in 10 count boxes with 2,500 boxes shipped. For me the 10 count box is an ideal size for the Canadian market. I’m also a big fan of most of the production lines of Ramon Allones.
The nose on this surprises me with a combination of hay and light white pepper. I don’t often get pepper on Cuban cigars so I’m intrigued.
The first third kicks off with that sweet unmistakable Cuban tobacco flavor and some milk chocolate undertones. Wow, we’re really off to the races out of the gate. There is almost a sweet cherry on the retro-hale. Delicious.
The middle third more of the same flavor profile with the addition of dry wood notes mixed in.
The last third has some spices coming through to build on the flavors carried through from 1 and 2.
This is an extremely tasty Canadian regional edition. I didn’t find it to be super complex but you won’t care because you’ll be too busy enjoying it. I’m very glad I went in a group box buy for this. A fantastic addition to the Canadian regional line-up. I really appreciate the 10 count boxes because you don’t need to invest deeply and can always grab a second box if you fall in love with it.
The Glenlivet Nadurra. Full stop. You can thank me later.
