It's no secret everything Z knows about tobacco was learned in the fields and at the rolling tables in Pinar del Rio, Cuba under the tutelage of his beloved grandmother, Celestina. This cigar honors her legacy as well as Z's love and appreciation for her and all she taught him.
We set out to make a premium cigar worthy of Celestina's name and we think she would be very happy with the end product. The result is a classic looking closed foot cigar capped with a pigtail. Adorned with a gold foot band and ornate primary band with the Celestina name flanked by the only image we have of our beloved Matriarch.
The cigar itself smokes like a dream. On the first puff, that closed foot 3-year-old Ecuadorian Habano 2000 hits you immediately with spice and a medium to full experience that never backs off. The cigar opens up very quickly after that initial puff to flavors of earth, balanced by spice and nuttiness. The spice never backs down but it plays very well with notes of cocoa, cinnamon, and a rounded sweetness. All of these flavors make this cigar the perfect pairing companion for a nice cup of coffee or even a café con leche.
This cigar is near and dear to us so we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating this commemorative tribute.
From the first puff, you'll be sure of one thing - this cigar is a spice bomb. This spice is balanced with a creamy smoothness that'll have you in love from beginning to end.View Cigar
A work of art, the Grand Salomone offers a unique and complex smoking experience. The flavors of this cigar change from draw to draw but you'll enjoy notes of cedar, coffee, pepper, and just a touch of mint.View Cigar
The Front 9 is a medium-bodied cigar with loads of spice and black pepper. The spice backs off after the first inch or so and is replaced with a complex intermingling of nuts, wood, and black tea.View Cigar
