Geronimo Cigars El Principio Maduro
Geronimo El Principio cigars are perfectly named. The translation means “beginning,” and we know that someday years from now, this will be where people remember the brand as really taking off.
This is the result of attention to detail, folks. Although the company was founded in 2013, it wasn’t until 2017 that the team finally sent out a broad release blend. While they originally were in the Dominican Republic, the pull of Nicaraguan tobacco turned them into a two-nation cigar company.
For Geronimo El Principio cigars, it began with the wrapper. That was what the blending team of founders Ariel Geronimo and Jorge Rodriguez was sure of – the rest was up for experimentation. What wrapper were they focused on? That earthy, spicy, Mexican San Andrés leaf has powered so many blends to the top (like Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s La Historia, Rocky Patel Vintage 2006, and several other 90+ rated cigars).
But you can’t have JUST a wrapper leaf, so the boys got to work experimenting. And since they’re big on detail, they didn’t just grab sample blends at the factory. It took around a year of smoking and tasting to get this one right, with a Nicaraguan Jalapa binder and some Condega and Jalapa long-filler leaf. For those who don’t know, Jalapa and Condega are the names of growing regions in Nicaragua.
Then it was time for a finishing touch – something that would take the Geronimo El Principio Maduro cigar blend to the next level. The answer was whiskey coffin aging, which infuses the cigars with a touch of that smoky, complex flavor of whiskey. It doesn’t make the cigars taste like booze. Instead, it adds a layer of complexity to an already thrilling blend.
They also came out beautifully made. It’s no wonder these are selling out everywhere. Nice job, Geronimo guys! We’re eager to see what comes next.
