The cigar features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over a Dominican binder and a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. The result is an elegant cigar that deliver a smooth but flavor profile with the right amount of spice and complexity in this medium bodied blend. Presented in ten-count boxes, the cigars are made out of the Tabacalera de Garcia factory in the Dominican Republic.
