La Promesa – A Superior Smoke

La Promesa Cigar of the MonthOur Cigar of the Month for July is My Father’s La Promesa – ‘The Promise’. This refers to the promise company patriarch Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia made to his family when he left Cuba. He promised to succeed as a cigar-maker, to make something of himself, and to honor his family name and their tobacco heritage.

With a Nicaraguan binder and filler and an Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper, La Promesa has a pre-smoke aroma of chocolate and ceder. It smokes smooth, with an even draw and flavors of again chocolate and ceder, along with cinnamon and mild peppery spice.
