The La Galera Anemoi Boreas is a medium strength robusto that is handmade at Jose “Jochy” Blanco’s Tabacalera Palma factory in the Dominican Republic.
Its reddish, oily USA Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper is draped over a Dominican Republic Corojo binder and a filler made of Dominican Republic, Dominican Piloto 98, and Criollo 98 tobaccos. The Anemoi has a flavor profile that consists of leather, coffee, and nuts. “Anemoi” is the collective word the Ancient Greeks used for their wind gods, and Boreas was the northern wind god. Most people don’t realize it, but the wind plays an important role in growing tobacco.
