Favilli (formerly Mombacho) has announced the release of "The Granada Line" in the U.S. This line includes three blends: Tierra, Isletas, and Lava. The line launched in Canada earlier this month. The newly created line includes Tierra, which is a rebranded version of the company's Tierra Volcan that has been in the U.S. market since 2014. There will be a total of 9 cigars in the new collection, with each of the three wrapper variations getting three sizes options.
"Overall this cigar had everything going for it. There was plenty of smoke output. Lots of leather, wood, coffee, and walnut notes. It was NOT a one-trick pony, this was a very balanced cigar that held my attention from 1st light to last puff. I would say this is a box purchase for me for sure, and the size was perfect. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Indiana is of course the daughter of Omar Ortez, patriarch of one of Nicaragua's oldest tobacco families.
"I really enjoyed this cigar and definitely would smoke it again. To me this would be a very good morning cigar or paired later in the day with a nice scotch or light bourbon. Decent smoke output, great flavors and excellent construction were the norm for this one." -James H. (Keikan Jim)

"Fantastic smoke. Not as full bodied as I typically prefer, but a really impressive medium bodied experience. Great core flavors of nuts and spice along with blasts of sweetness and floral qualities throughout. Not exactly massive transitions, but there were some nice points of interest along the way. Really exceptional construction as well. The craftsmanship definitely added to the experience. " -John I. (John I.)
