Prendelo Cigar Co. has released its newest blend, with two sizes included in the new line that is centered around Nicaraguan tobacco.
While the blend uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, the binder is a seco leaf from Nicaragua’s Jalapa region, with all the fillers also coming from the country, including viso from Condega, seco from Ometepe and ligero from Jalapa, as well as additional seco grown by ASP Enterprises. Reggie Freeman, owner of Prendelo, noted that all the leaves have been aged for at least three years, and called it a “mature, medium to full bodied cigar with desirable, unique flavors and a mesmerizing aroma.” He added that it is highlighted by notes of cinnamon, earth and cream with a finish marked by chocolate and slight amounts of pepper.
The new line is being rolled at Tabacalera New Order of the Ages (NOA) in Estelí, Nicaragua, the factory owned by Noel Rojas of Guayacan Cigars, and Brandon Hayes, who also owns Renegade Cigars in Richardson, Texas.
The blend will debut in the Aristocrat (5 x 50, $7.50) and Rosa Blanca (6 x 52, $8.50), both of which come in 20-count boxes as well as a limited number of five-packs, both of which began shipping to retailers last week.
