Ace Prime Pichardo Reserva Familiar Habano
We’re definitely ready for it.
Ace Prime Pichardo Reserva Familiar Habano cigars are heavy with fine Nicaraguan tobacco, including the Habano seed wrapper and binder. The long-filler blend incorporates a bit of Dominican leaf in addition to the Nicaraguan selections, making this almost a Nicaraguan puro, but not quite. Don Eradio tasted something in the Dominican addition that just had to be there to produce the flavor he was looking for.
There are two other blends in the Ace Prime Pichardo Reserva Familiar cigar line – one with a Connecticut wrapper and the other is a Mexican San Andrés Maduro leaf. They share a lot in common when it comes to the interior blend, but the variation in Capa's gives us three different ways to enjoy it.
Gracias, Don Eradio.
In the company’s own words, “This Habano cigar elevates the experience of pleasant coffee and dark chocolate notes, reminding you of a cozy warm feeling.” We find this to actually be true of the smoke – there’s a noticeable cocoa note in the profile that many reviewers have noticed. The rest of the flavors are a fine approach to Cuban-style blending. This of course makes sense. Don Eradio and his family have been working in the Cuban tobacco industry for ages, and so when he says “Habano,” we know the cigar’s going to be right on point.
Mastery takes a long time, but now that Pichardo is finally able to offer his own cigars, we’re quite excited to see what the future holds. Ace Prime Pichardo Reserva Familiar Habano cigars are more probably the beginning of big things for the company, as opposed to the final result. We’re definitely ready to experience everything as it comes.
