El Baton Cigars
5¢ for an El Baton cigar? Only if you were living and smoking in 1914 when the El Baton was first introduced. Destined for the discard pile of history not long afterward, the J.C. Newman Cigar Company has resurrected the frontmark with a blend to appeal to today's aficionados. Using tobacco sourced from all over Nicaragua for filler, binder, and especially the beautiful Corojo wrapper, this cigar retains a high value-to-price ratio considering it has garnered a nice collection of 90-plus ratings and a Top-25 of 2012 honor from Cigar Aficionado.
Reminiscent of the Gran Habano Corojo #5 and the Perdomo Habano Corojo, the El Baton can and should be sought out by smokers who enjoy robust Nicaraguan Puros. At less than $5 a stick, you might even want to make room in your humidor for two boxes.
