When it came to designing León Jimenes Prestige, one of the main considerations was to offer a richer and stronger version of the original León JImenes Connecticut. While they share the same wrapper, Prestige does much more in terms of its blend, while it is still an easy-smoking cigar, additional complexity is something to expect.

It is important to have patience when smoking your cigar. Wait until the ash is at least an inch long before making your first ash. Allowing the ash to build up and fall off naturally will prevent overheating, but wait too long to ash and it may fall unexpectedly, creating an unwanted mess.
Choosing a cigar is dependent upon your own preferences. From fuller-bodied to lighter and more mild, you will likely need to try a few before you know what you like. Choose a shape and size based on how long you would like to enjoy your cigar. You might opt for a bigger cigar for a longer experience, while smaller cigars will provide a quick, convenient indulgence.
Find the shoulder of the cigar where the curved part of the cigar begins to straighten out, then place the head of the cigar in your cutter’s opening, right at the seam to prevent unraveling. Close the blades just enough to hold the cigar in place, and once you’ve ensured you’re cutting in the right place, quickly and confidently make your cut.
With a distinctive start marked by dominating notes like cedar or leather are at the center of Leon Jimenes Prestige. In addition, its Connecticut wrapper, shiny with very fine veins, gives a special touch of cocoa and nuts, at the finish. It is very full in the mouth with notes of cinnamon, red fruits and freshly baked pastries.
