This Toro vitola in 6 x 50 comes in three Honduran puro blends: Maduro, Connecticut, and Corojo. Tobaccos grown for these amazing blends come from five tobacco farms specifically chosen by Oscar Valladares from provinces throughout Honduras and feature some tobaccos many connoisseurs may not have sampled. “Rosalila” comes in a box of 20 premium cigars with an added bonus cigar, flavor infused with “Chicha” the traditional Mayan corn based liquor.

Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Company’s boutique blend offers the aficionado a Mesoamerican tobacco experience like no other.
