Rated 94 Cigar Journal!
Pelo de Oro is a legendarily difficult and temperamental leaf to grow. It's susceptible to disease, the yields are low, and most farmers want nothing to do with it. But tobacco master A.J. Fernandez ain't scared. Instead, he painstakingly cultivates a bit of this tasty heritage Cuban-seed tobacco in Nicaragua, and he's cordially provided some to Rafael Nodal for the limited run Aging Room Small Batch Pelo de Oro cigar. Available in just one size, the 5 1/2 x 55 Scherzo,the Small Batch Pelo de Oro consists of a Cuban-seed Nicaraguan wrapper, specially selected Nicaraguan binder, and the much-coveted Nicaraguan Pelo de Oro leaves as filler to produce a well-rounded and densely flavorful upscale smoking experience with a bold and sweet taste. "I view Boutique Blends Cigars as a laboratory, creating unique and exciting blends with rare and hard-to-find tobaccos," said Rafael Nodal, president of Boutique Blends Cigars. "It does not get more rare or harder-to-find than Pelo de Oro tobacco."
