Frequently Asked Questions

Much like wine, as tobacco is aged, it has more time to develop its palate for a richer, smoother smoking experience. Cigars crafted with vintage tobacco are more luxurious due to their rarity, and the time it has taken waiting for the tobacco to be just right.

A cigar’s strength typically refers to its nicotine content—and the effect that may have on any particular adult cigar smoker. A mild cigar should not have much of an effect, while stronger cigars may bring about a nicotine buzz, dependent upon an individual’s tolerance level.

The most crucial part of identifying all the nuances of your cigars flavor profile is slowing down and having patience—you might recognize strong notes upon your first draw, but the longer you spend enjoying the mouthfeel, the more you will notice as the smoke continues. Consider cleansing your palate with soda water before smoking so your senses are primed to notice more and more details.

About the Blend

This exclusive product is a gesture of honor to remember Don Fernando, whose 100th birthday would have been in the year 2022. It is also dedicated to Dominican Republic, its people, and their legendary tobacco tradition, honored from generation to generation. The vitola and wrapper reflect the long legacy of Don Fernando and his virtues that brought valuable inputs to the tobacco culture of Dominican Republic. It possesses a blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, Brazilian and Peruvian leaves, obtaining delicate woody notes, alongside with cinnamon and nuts. Fernando León was (and still is) an inspiration for the tobacco growers who knew him, due to his tireless work and his transcendental passion, enhancing what his father bequeathed him.

Tasting Notes

“It’s a very special blend, made exclusively for Fernando León and his family and close friends. With an oily wrapper grown in the Dominican Republic this cigar offers enticing notes of spice and cedar with sweet honey aromas, complemented with citrus essences and a spicy touch that embodies Fernando León’s character.”
