Voted #15 Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 cigars of 2015!
Alan Rubin and the boys have really done it this time.
Combining a Honduran Corojo wrapper leaf with Costa Rican binder and a unique mix of Colombian, Honduran, and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, Sanctum is a striking smoke with rich taste like you’ve never experienced.
A razor-straight burn leads you through a labyrinth of vivid tasting notes that trick the tongue. You might think you were smoking earth, black cherries, savory steak sauce, toast, walnuts, leather, cocoa, sweet cedar, and dark roast coffee. Suddenly, the cigar’s cryptic name makes total sense. Within this maze of flavor, you are completely at ease. You find yourself abruptly jolted back to reality only when the ash finally drops after a couple of inches.
This just may be the AB brand’s finest creation yet.
Don’t get me wrong: the Tempus, Prensado, Nica Puro, and Mundial are great smokes, but none of them have the palate-melting power of Sanctum. Stock up now, then just wait and watch the ratings roll in.
