The “Year of the Rabbit” is a Nicaraguan puro using tobaccos from the various Plasencia farms. The blend is focused on tobacco from a very special area within the Jalapa Valley, the cigar is described as mild to medium-bodied. This blend was created to match the redeeming features of the rabbit, such as gentleness and elegance. It features notes of nougat, green tea, cedar, and cardamom.

“The Rabbit represents the perfect animal for these changing times for its ability to adjust during various times with grace and elegance. I would also like to emphasize that since the rabbit is a symbol of longevity, our tobacco also improves over time to achieve those incredible flavors. We strongly feel that “The Year of the Rabbit” cigar brand will accurately represent the Chinese New Year.”
