The Aging Room cigar line was created with the objective of releasing new and exciting blends made with limited and hard to find tobaccos. The new blend, Quattro T59, was selected with the help of consumers, as it was part of the Aging Room WildPack 2013 as blend W-IV (M-338). “The Aging Room WildPack is part of our strategy to involve the consumers in our blending process” said Rafael Nodal, president of Boutique Blends Cigars. “The selection of the new blend for the release of the Quattro is only the beginning” expanded Rafael Nodal, “as we continue to search for the next blend release with the help of the consumers who continue to vote from the WildPack blends,” concluded Rafael.

Boutique Blends Cigars also produces other brands as SWAG Cigars and its focus is on small, controlled production or small batch cigars. “I am not making cigars for everyone, I am making cigars for educated aficionados who are looking for exciting and complex blends” said Rafael.
Mentioned as one of the hardest working men in the cigar industry, Rafael Nodal is traveling around the USA and other countries, selecting the proper Boutique Blends Cigar shops and sharing with the cigar consumers his philosophy of making small batch blends and controlled productions.
Together with Hank Bischoff, Rafael has teamed up with veteran grower and cigar man in the Dominican Republic, Jose “Jochy” Blanco to create and develop these exciting blends using selected tobaccos from the famous farms of Blanco.
Looks like CI was right after all. Funny how that post on cigarfederation was news on Halfwheel when it contradicted CI, but then when they retracted the statement, you decided to ignore it. If you're going to do some sort of a "gotcha" piece, learn to do it properly and get your facts straight. Here's the mea culpa post below from the sales rep who didn't quite understand his own products. And here's a baby-wipe for the egg on everyone's faces, including yours, HW.
Today I just received an advance copy of the Press Release that Boutique Blends is issuing with the information about the new Aging Room Quattro T59 and yes the story that was published by Cigar Insider on Tuesday December 9, 2013 was right. I was wrong. Not the first time, not the last time…
The new Aging Room Quattro T59 is being released based on the preliminary votes of the WildPack. This blend appears in the WildPack as WP-IV Blend M-338, however, it is being released as Quattro T59, because it is box pressed and it takes the blend number based on the day that the box pressed blend was entered in the Boutique Blends Log.
