As we close out our series on Puro Sabor 2018, let's take a look at the events that made the week special. In all honesty, even the everyday lunches were special events. It seemed like every time we gathered for a meal, the organizers pulled out all the stops and made it a grand occasion instead of just another meal. One of my favorite things about all of these events was the reality of being able to sit down with people from all over the world, all walks of life, and all manner of experience in the cigar industry. We were all the same at these events. It was just an enormous group of friends gathering for a meal, some drinks, and great conversation.
"The flavor transition was fantastic. Peppery, sweet and toasted... all my favorites. I will definitely be buying more of these after the reveal. Very good cigar and I could see myself enjoying these at any time of the day. Each pull left me wanting to immediately take another. Had to pace myself a bit." -Adam B. (Bushboy)

“One word: Excellent. From its appearance, its aroma, its feel, the amount of smoke it produced, to its flavor profile…my palate went on a fun rollercoaster ride. I thoroughly enjoyed this blend. Whoever blended this cigar deserves a raise.” –Jeff R. (JR)
"Rock solid smoke, if this cigar was a baseball player it would be Cal Ripken, something you could totally bank on in a pinch. It didn't change a ton through the cigar but it was strong and not overwhelming at all which is not an easy thing to say about a stick of this caliber." -Jack (Jack_H)
