Originally created as a private blend, The Expat was too good for the father and son team that is Serino Cigars to keep to themselves.
Rolled using an Ecuadorian 2000 Habano Oscuro wrapper, Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 binder from Jalapa, and Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 fillers from Estelí along with a bold blast of Pennsylvania Broadleaf, the eye-catching Expat first came to life as a small batch creation for a friend’s destination wedding. After spending some time with the finished product, it became clear to brand founder Tony Serino and his son/partner Carson that they had a winner on their hands and needed to share it with the world. Sporting a Cuban-style pigtail cap and shaggy foot, the medium-full-bodied Expat is as handsome as it is expertly handmade, and it’s also exploding with loud flavors of cedar, chocolate, oak, and more. The straight-burning Corona Gorda (6 x 46) vitola delivers a potent concentration of these flavors for a particularly gratifying taste experience.
One might think that such an exceptional cigar must come with a pretty hefty price tag. Instead, The Expat is one of Serino’s most affordable offerings. Put this delicious win-win situation into your humidor right here.
