Pinar del Rio Oscuro
Pinar del Rio Oscuro cigars use rich, expertly aged Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers and a Dominican Criollo 98 binder as fuel. Covering these is a dark Brazilian Oscuro wrapper. The leaf’s dark color is a result of natural aging and fermentation. During the rolling process, the leaf is stretched to bring the natural oils to its surface.
The use of a Brazilian Oscuro wrapper is always exciting as it’s a departure from the traditional wrappers we’re all used to smoking. This leaf is a potent Mata Fina which is the main varietal of Brazil’s most popular cigar tobacco. Mata fina is sun-grown and stalk-cut and known for rich and smooth flavors with a hint of sweetness.
So what are the flavors of the Pinar del Rio Oscuro cigar? Expect notes of caramel, dark cocoa, coffee, and black pepper. The cigar has an effortless draw, flawless burn, and a sweet finish. Match this one up with a creamy stout and let the worries of the day fade away.
