As you might recall from last year’s show, Tim Wong debuted his Pier 28 line of cigars. Shortly after the show as part of the pre-FDA release deadline rush, he announced several extensions to the line that would be available in limited quantities.
This year, he showed off the second line, the Pier 28 Maduro, as it is ready for widespread release.
The second line in the Pier 28 collection uses a Mexican maduro wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler, and like the debut, is produced at Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Wong describes it as a medium-to-full strength, with a spicy sweetness and coffee and chocolate on the finish.
