Barreda at the PCA

Jennifer Barreda points out how much they improved the blend of the Don Chico line. They focused especially on the balance of a lot of flavors and not too strong tobacco. It is a mild cigar with their own tobacco for the filler and the binder. The wrapper is a Connecticut leave but also not very strong. It will hit the market with 3 vitolas, Robusto (5×54), a Toro (6×54) and the Chairman (6×60).

Also new will be a special blend only for Spain. Barreda wants to focus on special tastes in their markets.

Jennifer points out, that their cigars are aged for 1 year with tobacco fermented for 2 to 3 years.

Peter’s love of cigars began in 2001, and since then his interest has continued to grow. Multiple trips to Nicaragua, Cuba and the Dominican Republic as well as attending numerous cigar festivals have increasingly fueled this passion. He finds being a member of the Cigar Journal blind tasting panel a great honor and pleasure. This all led to the opportunity to become an author on the Cigar Journal team.
