CUBAO ATLANTIC EXCLUSIVE BOX-PRESSED CIGARS
The Cubao brand was re-launched at the 2013 IPCPR in Las Vegas under the name Ortega Cubao and is now part of the Ortega Premium Cigar Company. Cubao was a perennial favorite before being discontinued shortly, but worry not. Cubao is now being offered in an all new exclusive box-pressed version of this outstanding smoke. While on a trip with Eddie Ortega in Nicaragua I mentioned how great it would be to have a Cubao in a box-pressed format. To my surprise Eddie agreed, and ask would I like it as an exclusive, I replied with a quick YES! And the Cubao Atlantic Exclusive Box-Pressed was born!
The Cubao Box-Pressed is wrapped in an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper and blended with an all Nicaraguan core of long fillers, specifically featuring a binder from the Estelí region and Jalapa Valley filler tobaccos.
The box-pressing of the Cubao blend really adds to the flavor profile, giving it more balance and a creamy smooth finish. The Cubao Atlantic Exclusive is a small batch production, making for a more consistent refined smoke, that’s rich tasting with a medium to full-bodied profile with an amazing aroma and complexity.
