J.L. SALAZAR y HERMANOS Serie Maduro cigars are typical Box-Pressed Cubans. They are silky, Maduro and perfectly box-pressed. Master rollers totally hand make each one to draw firmly and to burn evenly. These box-pressed beauties compare to some of the best Maduro cigars in the world. The master rollers have handmade each one to draw and to burn perfectly. The tobacco leaves are aged for over four years and specially cured through four hanging fermentations. This is the exclusive curing process that the Salazar brothers brought over from Cuba, and what makes them so special.
The Filler is sun-grown Cuban Seed Habano tobacco from Tabacalera Esteli. The Binder is a wrapper quality Cuban Seed Habano leaf and the Wrapper is a flawless Maduro Cuban-seed leaf. This full-bodied cigar has a powerful yet smooth taste that is a notch up from the regular J.L. Salazar line. Every cigar is made in the same old fashioned way the Salazar Family made them in Cuba.
The taste is as delightful as the cigars is to the eye. It starts with leather, licorice, cocoa and white pepper notes that quickly transform to creamy clouds of bittersweet and dark chocolate, licorice and earthy tones. Floral undertones blend in for a refined complex finish that will have you wanting to light another. Enjoy this sampler pack and let it help you determine the size you best enjoy.
Since 1810, when the Salazar family settled in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba, they have been growing some of the worlds finest tobacco and handcrafting fine cigars. At 12 noon every day, the 4 Salazar brothers would meet in the porch of elder brother Mario’s house in the farm. Mario would open his burlap bag which contained the finest tobacco leaves of the farm’s harvest. The cured leaves were perfect in looks and taste and were the envy of the other farmers in Cuba’s prime tobacco growing region.
The burlap bag would be passed around and each brother would roll their own Cuban cigars. They would each roll enough for the day’s smoke. Each would have a different preferred size but the blend would always be the same for all four brothers. Mario’s sons, J.L. Salazar and his brothers, have carried on that tradition and special blend of tobacco leaves in these exquisite boutique cigars.
The J.L. Salazar y Hermanos Cabinet Selection are each totally handmade by a master roller. They use the secret blend that the Salazar Brothers brought from Cuba and with only the finest Cuban Seed leaves. The mellow and rich taste is unmatched. After trying these, you too will know why J.L. Salazar and his brothers are so proud of their family tradition.

I bought these on a whim, and boy: they don't disappoint. These were very smooth, pleasing to smell, and great tasting. I'm not an expert by any means, but they are a great cigar at a great price. Do yourself a favor, and buy some of these for your humidor. They are more than worth the money. I know I'll be keeping a nice stock. Thanks CC!!!
