Our Cigar Aficionado #3 Cigar of the Year Face-Off Sampler Includes:

5 x CAO Flathead V660 Carb Gordo (6" x 60, ●●●●○ Medium-Full, Rated 95). Selected by Cigar Aficionado as the 2015 #3 Cigar Of The Year. Made in Nicaragua at the Scandinavian Tobacco factory in Esteli. Inspired by grease monkeys and rock 'n roll, Flathead is box-pressed, flat-headed, and funky. It has Nicaraguan ligero fillers, a Habano Connecticut binder, and a dark, well-marbled Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. Starting its ignition with a strong, thick river of sweet, chocolatey flavor. The overall base is earthy, with just a few hints of pepper and coffee sprinkled about. As it evolves, a rich sweetness begins to dominate the flavor profile, giving bursts of floral and cocoa notes. Flathead is maduro and ligero at its best, with a wonderful mix of sweet, spicy, and strong. Buckle up, because this hot rod gives one heck of a ride.

5 x Oliva Serie V Belicoso (5" x 54, ●●●●● Full, Rated 95). Selected by Cigar Aficionado as the 2017 #3 Cigar Of The Year. When this cigar was introduced, the entire world of cigars went crazy, and for many years this ultra-premium treat was one of the hardest sticks to get a hold of. Considered the crown jewel of the Oliva Cigar Company in Nicaragua. Made by the top rollers at Oliva, this amazing stick consists of Nicaraguan Jalapa Valley ligero fillers, a spicy Nicaraguan binder, and a gorgeous sun-grown Ecuadoran Sun Grown wrapper. Beginning with a powerful blast of white pepper and unmistakable Nicaraguan spice, this oily flavor bomb shows absolutely no mercy as it transitions into a rich, woody adventure speckled along the way with notes of coffee, cedar, and cocoa. It packs a huge punch, both flavor- and strength-wise, and finishes with a thick slathering of earth across the palate. This is one beast of a cigar, and well, it should be, as it helped start the "powerhouse" cigar movement, when tastes went from full-flavored to extremely-full-flavored.
