Sunday we change our clocks 1 hour forward for Daylight Savings Time, but this weekend is BLACK AND WHITE SAVINGS TIME! Top-shelf black Maduros and mild shade-grown Connecticut wrapper premiums are on sale. On the black side, 20 handmade La Caya Maduro Torpedos are a mere $21.99. Aged over 2 years in cedar and 2 years in our humidors, you'll enjoy their taste which includes toasted nuts, cedar, anisette, licorice, raw cocoa and coffee. On the white side you have a box of 25 mild Arte Cubano Torpedos for only $39.99. You'll relax to cedar, oak, light orange peels and ginger.
We made a deal with a big-time maker in Nicaragua whose box-pressed super-premium Maduros sell everywhere for $8 to $10 each. We agreed not to divulge his name so we call him the Mystery Maker. A while back we brought in some of these bundles and they quickly sold out. We just received a few more. They're the same exact sticks you see at stores and on the internet but without the fancy labels, and have the same full-bodied taste with creamy well-balanced earthy notes of sweet cocoa, nuts, woods and chocolate. 25 Robustos are $46.99 and 25 Churchills are $49.99.
OneOff Doble Capa is both black and white, handmade with two different wrappers. The first half has a shade-grown Connecticut and the second a sun-grown Habano. It starts with mild and extremely smooth tastes of coffee, cream, cedar and nutmeg. The Habano brings in earthy breezes of cocoa, vanilla and cream. A box is only $49.99. Don Kiki White Label Churchill from the 2005 Harvest is one of the most elegant mild ultra-premiums you'll ever experience. Their distinguished taste has velvety spices, cedar and creamy nutmeg. This email brings you a box for just $64.99.
For the Connoisseurs, the Cuban Crafters Connecticut Vice-Chairman with a huge 60 ring gauge is a real treat. It's one of the few “whites” with a medium to full-bodied complex taste that's smooth, rich and exhilarating with creamy baking spices, eggnog and woods. A box is $79.99. Another Aficionado favorite is the Berger and Argenti Entubar CRV Torpedo with rich, bold and complex tastes that are very smooth and creamy. Its Connecticut River Valley wrapper is so rare and expensive that these will never be made again. We have some of the last remaining boxes and you get them for $109, about 55% off! Prices are good through Monday, March 10th.
