Mombacho Cigars, known for its elaborate colonial-style mansion-turned-factory, as well as producing all-Nicaraguan smoking experiences in the medium to full-body range, introduces the Mombacho Casa Favilli in commemoration of its historical factory of the same name.
Differing from the large swath of cigar factories based in the cigarmaking mecca of Estelí, the Casa Favilli factory resides 100 miles south, in the colonial city of Granada. With Casa Favilli, Master Blender, Claudio Sgroi, set out to honor the company's unique facility through the use of a virtually unheard-of tobacco style: Nicaraguan Broadleaf. Broadleaf is a thick and gritty tobacco that is commonly associated with the Connecticut River Valley (aka Connecticut Broadleaf). But with Casa Favilli, the Broadleaf seeds have been transplanted to Nicaragua's Jalapa growing region, allowing this special blend to maintain Mombacho's all-Nicaraguan designation, while simultaneously allowing for the brand's first true maduro experience! This unique leaf is used as the cigar's wrapper ingredient and is joined by a Jalapa binder and fillers of Nicaragua's Condega and Jalapa regions.
As expected, Mombacho Casa Favilli is full in body and flavor, bringing a unique experience to the die-hard fanatic of both Nicaraguan and maduro-style cigars. Expect a gritty smoking character overall, showing heavy-hitting flavors of earth, black pepper, chicory, dark cocoa, and sweet brown sugar.
