Già anticipato su Cigar Aficionado ecco un nuovo sigaro parto del geniale Jose Blanco. Per Facciamo Puff ho ricevuto un suo scritto con cui ci racconta del progetto:

For my 65th Birthday I am celebrating with a Señorial 65th Anniversary!
This has been a very special year for me, I finally came out with my own cigar-company, Las Cumbres Tabaco and my own brand Señorial, which was a dream come true. After a few years away from home, I moved back to Santiago to blend my creations and work with my family´s factory, my cousin Jochi Blanco´s factory, Tabacalera Palma.
All this happened on the same year as I´m turning 65, on October 27,th so I am now coming out with my Señorial 65th Anniversary!
I decided to blend this cigar with 100% Dominican Tobaccos to honor this beautiful cigar-country where I am from and where I grew up learning everything I know. I am lucky that my cousin Jochi has truly fantastic tobaccos in his farms, extremely well aged and processed, ready for such a blend. This is a Limited Edition of 25,000 and it comes in boxes of 10, in one single size, Perfecto.

Señorial 65th AnniversaryIn altre parole per festeggiare i suoi 65 anni Jose confeziona una bellissima Edizione Limitata nel formato Perfecto con un blend 100% Dominicano. Tributo quindi non solo a sè ma anche alla famiglia e alla Tabacalera Palma di suo cugino Jochi e che produce la sua linea Señorial. Ma vediamo le caratteristiche dalle stesse parole di Blanco:

Señorial 65th Anniversary

Perfecto Elégance – 5 ¾ X 55

Blend and Tobaccos: this is a cigar very special to me, and I wish to share more than the usual by also mentioning these beautiful Dominican farms, as well as primings depending on the seeds:

Wrapper: 6 year-old Dominican Piloto Cubano from La Canela farm

Binder: Dominican Corojo from La Canela farm

Filler (each with 5 years of age)

  • Dominican Piloto Cubano, Ligero, from La Canela farm
  • Dominican Corojo, Viso, from Jacagua farm
  • Dominican Corojo, Seco, from Gurabo farm

Depending on the farm and seed, I carefully chose each priming and I am only using tobaccos with 5 to 6 years of age for this edition. It all wraps up in a medium to full bodied cigar, full flavored with great complexity and a quality smoothness. It is hence very balanced and in harmony.

Señorial 65th Anniversary will however be out on the market after 90 days of aging post rolling, meaning after my birthday.
