If you created the Aging Room Small Batch cigar line, the highest rated boutique cigar brands of our times -- what would you do next? Well, if you are Rafael Nodal from Boutique Blends Cigars, you would combine your three most important passions of your life: Cuba, music and cigars and create a new Classic: La Bohème Cigars. La Bohème is Rafael’s take on the Golden Age of Cuban Cigars. La Bohème is a sophisticated blend of extra aged and hard to find tobaccos from the Dominican Republic. A medium bodied cigar, rich in flavors reminiscent of the island he left thirty five years ago in a small boat with his family. Why wait for the embargo to be lifted? Smoke La Bohème today. BLENDING is in our DNA .
And by Duran Premium Cigars, one the fastest growing boutique cigar companies, providing smokers a portal into the old Cuban tradition of perfect balance and the lost art of progressive flavor construction. Roberto Pelayo Duran began his career in tobacco over two decades ago in Havana, where his reputation grew within Cuban circles. The creation of Duran Premium Cigars has given Roberto the platform to introduce a series of cigars that offer the same quality, construction, and detail, which he perfect while in Cuba. Brands include the ultra-premium Roberto P. Duran Premium Cigar series, Azan Cigars, Neya, and Baracoa. Duran Cigars uses a “seed to humidor” approach, as all tobacco is grown on their farms and rolled in their factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Rollers have been carefully chosen, to carry out Roberto’s precise method, to insure the progressive flavor in each cigar. Duran Cigars invites you to make their premium, your standard.
