Pier 28 Maduro is a more traditional blend. It’s a familiar Nicaraguan binder/filler with a San Andres wrapper. When you go with a blend that has a lot of comparable options already on the market, you just have to execute it as good or better than what is out there. The San Andres we sourced for this cigar is beautiful and wonderfully sweet. It has a caramel color and is a little more delicate that other San Andres. People sometimes forget that the Maduro process is supposed to make the tobacco sweeter and more flavorful and not just darker or stronger. I wanted to deliver a classic Maduro with all the sweetness it's supposed to have. We all hear the flavor description of chocolate and cocoa for Maduros and I wanted to make sure this cigar delivers just that. I believe it does. I would consider it medium to full strength and again, full flavored.
Carefully curated for you.
