Maya Selva has launched her first box-pressed cigar, the “Grand Pressé”. Part of the Flor de Selva Maduro collection, the Prensado format completes the line, which includes formats No. 15 (Figurado), Robusto, Toro and Tempo (Robusto Grande). Franco-Honduran cigar maker Selva introduced the “Grand Pressé” at the IPCPR 2016, and it has been available to European consumers since fall. The CJ tasting panel loves Flor de Selva’s Maduro line—its Robusto scored 95 points four years ago—and has frequently awarded other formats 91 points plus. The new Toro Grande format is an exciting addition to the Maduro line!
Tasting notes: “The aromas of earth and spice notes are accompanied by a fruity, chocolaty and cinnamon sweetness; at the same time, the cigar develops a good pepperiness. Later on, earthy, leathery and coffee aromas with eucalyptus and berries. Medium.”
