Medina 1959 Miami Edition is considered the finest cigar made in Miami. That’s saying a lot as Miami is now the cigar mecca of the United States. You’d think that even Manuel Medina, a Cuban cigar legend, would be satisfied with the success of his cigar. But when one of Miami’s well known aficionado walked into our Miami factory and challenged Medina to come up with an equally elegant and smooth cigar but with more power, he accepted the challenge. That was over a year ago.
Since then Medina developed the new blend and is now making the Medina 1959 Miami Edition Habano in very limited quantities. They’re made in our Miami cigar factory, side by side with the original Medina 1959 cigars. This beauty tastes and burns as good as the cigars that Medina made when he was in charge of the H. Upmann and Davidoff factory in Havana, Cuba.
Handmade with an ultra-premium Cuban-seed Rojo Habano wrapper, the leaf’s rich oils give the cigar a bright shine that makes the cigar as pleasing to the eye as the mouth. While Cuban-seed Habano tobacco usually has protruding veins, this premium wrapper’s veins are barely visible. The full-bodied smoke starts with extremely smooth floral tastes that include toasted nuts, nutmeg, mild cooking spices and cream. You’ll quickly sense crisp waves of butterscotch and bittersweet dark chocolate. It’s a complex and exhilarating taste that only Medina can create. The cigar produces a perfectly white and even ash. That’s the result of extensively cured tobacco and perfect construction. While Medina personally makes some of them, he also supervises the Cuban born rollers that make the cigars. Some of them worked for him in Cuba, and all of them have years of experience making some of the world’s most expensive cigars in Cuba.
Since such few are made and the word is out about these cigars in Miami, they are only available in our Miami mega store. As they age and more become available, you’ll start seeing them in some of our dealers throughout the country. Until then, come by our Miami cigar megastore and enjoy one with Medina. By the way, the aficionado who challenged Medina loves them. His favorite size is the big Corona Gorda that’s 6 1/2 inches long with a large ring gauge of 64.
