Staff Pick of the Week

Pick of the Week, May 2017: 

 

Perla del Mar, "Perla P" from J.C. Newman Cigar Company.

Perla del Mar Cigars from J.C. Newman are on our list of "go-to smokes" -- those accessible cigars that you reach for on a regular basis. With an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade box-press wrapper, this cigar starts with a mild flavor profile that smoothly ramps up to medium.

The "Perla P" shown here is a 3 3/4 x 56, which makes it the perfect size for someone who wants to enjoy the full cigar experience in a shorter amount of time. It pairs perfectly with a morning cup of coffee or an evening cup of decaf... even with a little something extra like a drop of Bailey's.

Wrapper: Ecuador Connecticut
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Strength: Mild-medium

Michael's Pick of the Week, April 2017:

The Muestra de Saka Exclusivo from Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust

"Steve Saka, this cigar is outstanding! Can't wait for Vegas to see you and find out what's next."

 

From creator Steve Saka's press release- "The Exclusivo is a special liga I created to be the ultimate expression of my love for all Nicaraguan trips. It is a complex smoke featuring filler tobaccos from all four primary growing regions: Jalapa, Condega, Ometepe and Esteli – by an extremely careful positioning of the leaf it takes the smoker from a silky smooth beginning of sweet cedar and cinnamon building to a much fuller, pepper laced conclusion. It is a very intricate blend that rewards the smoker with endless complexity and progression.”

4/14 UPDATE: Steve adds in a message to all of us at the Humdiour on the day of the Exclusivo's arrival "I wrote that description back before the cigars had six months of additional aging - I now find the cigar to be a touch milder, less emphasis on the pepper and more on the creamy notes - I find it to be like crème brûlée - hope you customers enjoy them!"

But enough description... this a cigar you have to experience for yourself.

Jim’s Top Pick of 2015:
Bella Carmella Lonsdale
 
Bella Carmella is the second release from Rocky Patel made exclusively for The Humidour Cigar Shoppe. This follow-up to the very successful Zorba is a milder smoother cigar, featuring a Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder, and filler blend of Honduran tobacco from two different regions. This was Jim’s favorite new cigar of 2015, and not just because it’s named after his granddaughter.
