Cult Ometepe Cigars
The Cult brand is committed to raising awareness of the ongoing challenges to the rights of cigar smokers everywhere, and the Cult Ometepe cigar is a new frontmark fighting with strength and character. Crafted in Esteli at the Tacasa S.A. factory by father and son team Carlos and Chris Sanchez, each vitola is packed with the types of flavors aficionados crave. Like the original Cult this cigar has a robust Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, but hidden beneath as both binder and filler is a premium blend of various tobaccos, all from the cloudy slopes of the Nicaraguan island known as Ometepe. The rich soils and filtered sun of the island, upon which two volcanos reside, make for prime leaf growing conditions.
The Cult Ometepe provides unique leather and red pepper flavors right off the bat, while later tastes include toasted cashews, black cherry, and creamy cedar. As the final inches are reached, robust coffee and citrus keep the palate engaged and refreshed. A medium to full bodied smoke perfect for pairing with a hot espresso or smooth blended Bourbon, each is good now but also has excellent aging potential. As luck would have it, the cigars come in boxes of 24 so you can split the difference.
