Los Blancos Cigar Event/Tasting


Greetings, suitors of Sumatras. It is with great pleasure that we announce our first formal cigar event and tasting! Please join us Friday, March 25, 2011 for an evening with David Blanco, V.P. of Los Blancos Cigar Company, a small family cigar company who distributes Los Blancos and Primos cigars. We will have the event run from 5 to 8 PM. The special shall include a "Buy 3 Get 1 Free" Los Blancos-made cigar. In addition, every guest shall receive a voucher good for door prizes to be raffled during the event. Hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be provided as well. Take advantage of the fine weather and meet & join the rest of the Habana Port smoking community as we celebrate Los Blancos cigars!

For our locker customers, in addition to the above offerings, you will receive a free cigar at this event only! This is just another benefit you can enjoy as a locker customer at Habana Port. Ask us for details if you are interested in becoming a member.

If you are not familiar with this fantastic cigar company, then you are in for a treat. Los Blancos Cigar Company was founded in the U.S. in 1998 and their family's roots can be traced to the famous tobacco-growing region of Pinar del Rio, Cuba. Cousins to the Plasencia family, Los Blancos cigars are all made in Esteli, Nicaragua in small batches and come in 5 lines:

1. Sumatra - a spicy & assertive blend with subtle hints of pepper & cocoa bean. 4/10 strength

2. Criollo - an exotic tawny blend that elicits a far-east spicy aroma with hints of oak. 7/10 strength

3. Connecticut - an elegant, earthy blend with delicate woody undertones & a nutty finish. 4/10 strength

4. Maduro - a rich & creamy blend with hints of dark chocolate & a smooth woody finish. 4/10 strength

5. Nine - well-constructed & blended for a sweet profile delivering tons of dark chocolate & leather. 10/10 strength

The Primos line is a long filler, handmade cigar that provides the smoker with a great value! We carry both lines and includes the following:

1. Primos Habana Criollo Rosado - medium-bodied, the wrapper is Nicaraguan with filler hailing from Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru. 8/10 strength

2. Primos Criollo Maduro - full-bodied smokes with a complex and sophisticated flavor. 8/10 strength

We hope to see you here!

Until the next post, siempre fumando,

Habana Port
