I’ve discovered these, not so little, gems on social media recently.
An Aussie expat has relocated himself to Cuba and has gone about sourcing his own tobacco and rollers in order to create his own line of custom rolls.
I’ll get around to doing a proper review of the product over the weekend but suffice to say I’m really gaining an appreciation for what they’re doing with their venture.
It’s said there’s a difference between Cuban and non-Cuban cigars and this topic can be somewhat divisive amongst the aficionados. The argument goes along the lines that, NC cigars can have a one dimensional flavour profile (more or less) and that Cuban cigars are more complex. That aspect is revealed more so (IMO) when you have the opportunity to sample something like what’s in the picture.
Anyways, like I said, I’ll take the time to profile the product over the coming weekend and see if I can detail my impression of these cigars more precisely along with some better photos.
