Maya Selva Cigars is releasing their third annual cigar celebrating the Chinese New Year. This year's edition is the YEAR OF THE RAT. The design line brings together traditional Chinese patterns and Mayan hieroglyphics. The Rat is the first of the 12-year cycle of animals that represent the Chinese zodiac. According to Chinese tradition, 12 animals guard the gates of Heaven. According to Mayan tradition, we are all born with a Nahual, or spirit animal, that guides us through life.
I have to say that for a $3.50 cigar this could easily be a daily smoke if you find the flavors in your wheelhouse. Lots of interesting transitions through each of the thirds. Performance was fantastic and really just capped off an excellent smoking experience. I would highly recommend that you pick some up and see if they are a fit for your humidor.
