The Commodore is a premium cigar that was created to be sold in the European market, but due to trademark issues the brand was temporarily tabled, leaving the cigars ready for sale. We came across this cigar while on a trip in Nicaragua and liked the blend, so did what we do best, and made them an offer to take them all at an incredible price. The manufacturer, who asked us to keep them anonymous, was convinced to clear out what they had packaged in boxes from their Nicaraguan factory.
The line comes in two blends, an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and an Ecuadorian Connecticut, both with Nicaraguan binder and fillers. The Habano is a solid, flavorful smoke with nice tobacco notes with a solid medium body with a hint of spice and sweetness on the finish. The Connecticut is creamy smoke with a pleasant woody flavor with a little less spice. Both are extremely well made, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see this blend out soon under a different name selling for three times this amount. The Commodore is a perfect everyday smoke, affordable enough to smoke anytime, while doing those weekend chores, on the golf course, or just relaxing. The only bad thing is once they are gone I don’t think we will be able to get our hands on more for this price!
