The Merlion cigar is a follow up to the popular La Sirena cigar line, but now blended by Guillermo Leon of La Aurora Cigar Company. The Mermaid from La Sirena meets the Lion of La Aurora, hence the name “Merlion.”
The result is a medium-bodied cigar with a unique blend of aged tobaccos. The Merlion consists of six types of tobacco which leads to its complex flavor profile. The wrapper is an Ecuadorian Corojo that encases a Brazilian Sumatra binder with long-filler Dominican Corojo, Dominican Criollo '98, Nicaraguan ligero, and Brazilian Mata Fina. The blend delivers steady flavor that deepens to a hearty smoke with each puff. Noticeable hints of pepper, wood and a natural pleasant sweetness accompany a long toasty finish.
