Straight from one of the leading full-bodied, full-strength brands comes the Man O’ War Virtue cigar. For a Man O’ War stick, the Virtue is quite the mild-medium strength gentleman. This easy-going guy wears an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper, the only Connecticut shade utilized in the Man O’ War line.
Ecuador has a number of characteristics key for growing this leaf. Among these are rich volcanic soil, a consistent cloud cover with filtered sunlight, and climate. Connecticut-wrapped cigars are usually mild and silky, with those grown in Ecuador bringing a bit more flavor to the blend.
The wrapper on the Man O’ War Virtue cigar aged for a decade and is said to be one of the more complex Connecticut draped cigars available today. At the same time, it is among the most mellow cigars produced by A.J. Fernandez. Below this leaf, we find a long leaf Nicaraguan Ligeros grown in Nicaragua to bring some power to the blend. These Ligeros find balance with the addition of leaves from the lower primings—seco, and viso. Add fire to the Man O’ War Virtue cigar, and you’ll experience cream, sweet oak, coffee, and toasted nuts.
Please enjoy Man O’ War Virtue cigars at your leisure.
