Picks of the Month!
from the city's best tobacconist
Welcome to ~ the reintroduction of El Centurion H-2K-CT.
Originally a limited-edition smoke, El Centurion is back and just released!
The H-2K-CT refers to the wrapper of the El Centurion H-2K-CT. It is a Cuban-seed Habano 2000 hybrid leaf that is sun grown in the Connecticut River Valley, USA.The Connecticut River Valley, USA is famous for its golden, silky shade grown wrappers and the toothy oscuro Connecticut Broadleaf but growing Cuban seed tobacco in the Connecticut River Valley is new.
No doubt you've heard of Jose "Pepin" Garcia, one of the great cigar makers of our time. Staying true to the original blend, Pepin packs the El Centurion with all well-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos. The kicker is the super-unique Sancti Spiritus leaf which morphs this blend into spicy-sweet with notes of pepper and leather. Medium-to-full in body, El Centurion is tasty right out of the box and after a few months of diligent aging, the real fireworks begin!
The El Centurion H-2K-CT is different from the Connecticut shade of My Father CT cigars. Jaime García said to Cigar Aficionado:
"This new creation was a team effort between my father and meIt is a lot different than My Father Connecticut. And different from the regular El Centurion. This new version is a medium-bodied cigar with full flavor, but it's also box-pressed. We were looking for a blend that is accessible to every palate but different from all our other brands."
Great cigars are in the shop this month!
