Carrillo Edicion Limitada 2010: The second annual limited edition cigar from Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr., substantially fuller bodied than the previous offering, this cigar is full bodied, but balanced with a subtle sweetness that counteracts the spicy notes.

Hoyo de Monterrey Reposado en Cedros: Using a proprietary process known as “Inmersion,” the creators of these cigars enhance the flavor and complexity of the smoke with cedar aging. Medium bodied with a slightly spicy rich taste. Wrapper: Ecuadoran Sumatra Binder: Connecticut Broadleaf Filler: Honduran, Nicaraguan & Dominican. $7-$8
La Gloria Cubana Artesanos de Obelisco: Created as a tribute to the artisan cigar makers at El Credito’s factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic and inspired by the city’s iconic obelisk, the ”Monument to the Heroes of the Restoration,” the Obelisco heightens the innovation and artistry of these craftsmen. This is a fuller bodied cigar that has a nice spice component. Wrapper: Ecuadoran Sumatra Binder: Connecticut Broadleaf Filler: Dominican and Nicaraguan Ligero. $9
