At Alfonso, cigar craftsmanship intertwines seamlessly with the artistry of winemaking, echoing founder Nelson Alfonso's assertion that "Cedar is to cigars as oak is to wine." But in this extraordinary blend, the aging process delves deeper, embracing both cedar and oak within its vaults.


While the core blend line undergoes a substantial aging period of two to three years, the Alfonso Extra Anejo Cigars seeks to elevate this process to craft an even more exquisite smoking experience. Although not venturing into the decade-long Extra Aged blend territory akin to Atabey (another creation by Nelson Alfonso), it confidently carves its space between the two extremes.


Mr. Alfonso emphasizes, "The years invested in aging these cigars serve a purpose, and we earnestly hope that this dedication resonates in every puff."


Crafted following the signature Alfonso blending approach, the Alfonso Extra Anejo Cigars boasts an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper complemented by a blend of Nicaraguan and Peruvian long-fillers. These sticks exhibit a velvety smoothness and unveil a delightful interplay of pepper and caramel from the very first draw. A symphony of cedar, bread, and numerous nuanced notes unfolds, creating a complex and thoroughly enjoyable blend. Nutty sweetness abounds, inviting exploration with every rich plume of smoke exhaled.


Positioned as a premium offering from a brand still carving its niche, the Alfonso Extra Anejo Cigars may bear a higher price tag, yet it undeniably delivers an exceptional, luxury experience that surpasses expectations. The Alfonso artisans have unveiled their masterpiece, and it’s time for the world to catch up.

Cigar Aging: A Masterful Journey

The aging process of cigars is a meticulous craft that parallels the sophistication found in winemaking. Just as wines develop character and depth over time, cigars undergo a transformation that enhances their flavors, aromas, and overall smoking experience.

Aging vaults serve as the sanctuaries where cigars evolve and mature, a crucial step in elevating their quality. The Alfonso Extra Anejo stands testament to this process, where time becomes a crucial ingredient in creating a sublime smoking sensation.

Flavor Profiles: Unveiling the Nuances

The Alfonso Extra Anejo tantalizes the palate with a symphony of flavors. The interplay of pepper and caramel, complemented by notes of sourdough, creamy desserts, and a myriad of nuances, forms a harmonious blend that evolves with each draw.

Pairing Cigars: An Art of Complementing Tastes
