The Best Cigars of All Time – Herberto Perez Carrillo 5×50
Cigars are a complex, flavorful experience that can offer more than just a good time. They can help reduce stress, and the act of smoking one is often seen as a ritualistic experience that can be enjoyed alone or with friends and provides an opportunity to reflect and recharge. Cigars can also serve as a way to appreciate the time, effort and skill that goes into producing a premium cigar.
The filler is the tobacco leaf that makes up the majority of the cigar, and is usually made from several varieties of leaves or a single variety. The binder is the tobacco leaf that binds the filler leaves together, and is typically selected for its strength and durability. The wrapper is the outermost leaf on a cigar, and it may be selected for its color, smoothness or suppleness. The flavor of a cigar is created by the combination of all of these elements, and the country of origin can also be an important determinant.
This classic sized 5×50 cigar was released in 2021 and is a full-bodied, balanced smoke that features a Mexican San Andres wrapper. The cigar was created in honor of Ernesto Perez Carrillo’s father, Herberto, and is a great choice for anyone looking to enjoy a well-made cigar that has won the Cigar Aficionado Top 25 Cigar of the Year two times in a row. The cigar is brimming with high-priming Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos, and it offers dark chocolate, spice, cedar, and sweet flavors that will leave you impressed.
