Rumor has it that there might be a bottle of Flor de Cana rum present. It's a rumor Barry started because it's true. The boys are drinking again so this one might fly off the rails.

The Great Blind Spice Off

Every week on The Cigar Authority we give flavor notes for the cigar we smoke. At the suggestion of a listener we present to you the great blind spice off. Can the boys tell you the name of the spice by the smell and taste of it or will they fall flat on their faces?

We step into the time machine this week and we look at the cigar industry and how it has changed from 1994 to 2019. We will pull out some old price lists and look at how cigar pricing has changed. We also look at prices from other industries to see if pricing has been consistent.

We also look at cigars we feel are underpriced. In short, what cigars perform better than their pricing. We look at values in the cigar industry.

If the first hour we fire up a cigar from David’s vault. The cigar is a 1994 Suerdieck Don Pepe Robusto that was made in Brazil featuring a Brazilian grown Sumatra wrapper. In the second hour we fire up a La Gianna Corona Maduro from The Cigar Authority care package that has been made since ’94.

When you think of cigar tobacco you think of Cuba, Dominican Republic, Honduras and Nicaragua but there is a rich history of tobacco grown for cigars right here in the United States of America. Today we explore the Connecticut River Valley with Nicholas Melillo who has his company, Foundation Cigars based in The Constitution State.

We will do this with one of the newest cigars in his portfolio the Tabernacle Havana Seed CT #142. Master blender, Nicholas Melillo, worked with choice farmers in the Connecticut River Valley since 2014 to develop the Havana Seed CT #142 wrapper. The seed is extremely rare and unlike any other tobacco in the world. Due to the incredible amount of oil from the plant, it takes 3-years to undergo the fermentation process. We will light up and share our opinion of this special cigar.

In the second hour we will light up a cigar from The Cigar Authority Care Package. The Eiroa CBT hails from Eiroa’s El Aladino factory in Honduras. The CBT Maduro’s wrapper, binder, and filler utilize 100% Maduro leaves harvested from the plant’s top primings. Did Christian nail the blend? Tune in as we share our opinion.
