Here's one of the best-kept secrets among the boutique brands, but we're sure it won't stay that way for long.
Palo Prieto is made by the Aguilar family in Nicaragua, with a heritage of well over a century in cigar-making, with their roots in Cuba. These gorgeous small-batch cigars begin with a stunning, oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and a Dominican Corojo binder. The filler blend or Criollo and Corojo from Nicaragua contribute to a flavor profile that's creamy and rich, with notes of leather and a fair dose of spice, with a pleasant hint of sweetness. Get yours now while they're flying under the radar, because when the word gets out, they'll be hard to keep in stock.
