Cuenca Y Blanco Cigars
Cuenca Y Blanco
The CyB cigar, formerly Cuenca y Blanco, is an ambitious departure for a company famous for one of the first, if not the first, full-bodied Nicaraguan Puros. Coming from the Joya de Nicaragua factory, source of the famous JdN Antaño, the CyB is not a Puro of any origin but a cigar containing tobaccos from a variety of locales and types. Created by Jose Blanco, formerly of La Aurora, the heart of the cigar is a blend of Nicaraguan leaf grown in the shadow of the Ometepe volcanos and the dark soils of Esteli mixed with Peruvian long-filler. A Dominican Piloto Cubano binder and Ecuadorian Habano wrapper complete the tour of some of the world's the best growing regions and set the strength as a solid medium.
A solid and unpretentious stogie layered with oak and espresso, plus some leathery and floral notes to keep things interesting, the CyB should please any smoker who enjoys Nicaraguan cigars and those who prefer their smokes to be a little more wire-ranging. Excellent for the day's second cigar after an Ashton Cabinet or the evening's first before taking on a Casa Fernandez Miami Reserva, this offering from Joya de Nicaragua pairs as well with a rich black coffee as it does with a whiskey cocktail.
