Steven Ysidron of Epicurean Cigars follows up his block buster hit Gonzo with the Gonzo Santeria. All three sizes are in stock and this dark beauty does not disappoint. The vintage Mexican San Andrés wrapper is toothy yet almost flawless and imparts a wonderful taste in the mouth that lingers for the duration of the smoke. With a double binder of Mexican San Andrés and Nicaraguan Jalapa, the Santeria is blended to perfection. The Nicaraguan filler has a bit more ligero than the previous Gonzo iteration and it is apparent by the complex spicy smoke. This box press cigar smokes and draws like a dream with a sharp burn line.
Only 150 boxes of each size have been made and Steve has signed and numbered each box. These cigars are a tough find and if you have an opportunity to grab one you should. We rate this as a medium full to full smoke with complex tasting notes sure to please the aficionado.
Wrapper: San Andres
Double binder: San Andres and Jalapa
Filler: 2009 Nicaragua Jalapa and Condega
