Oom pa pa, oom pa pa! Oops, sorry. That's a tuba. This week's Primo Sampler is all about the "Tubo." Summer is upon us and with it comes travel....vacation....and how to pack cigars to be enjoyed while at the beach, on a deck overlooking a lake or teeing up for a par four. These "tubos" might just be the answer!
ARTURO FUENTE CHATEAU FUENTE KING "T" (Dominican Republic)
The King T is a medium-bodied Churchill featuring a Dominican binder and filler all wrapped in a delicious Connecticut shade grown wrapper. Woody and cedar notes abound throughout the entire smoke with just a hint of toffee at the finish. Primo Strength Rating: 6
GURKHA GHOST (Dominican Republic)
Here we have a fuller-bodied Belicoso that is sleek and alluring. It features a complex blend of dark Brazilian Aripiraca maduro wrapper, Criollo binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. Very spicy with notes of dark chocolate, peppermint and wood. Try this after that T-bone! Primo Strength Rating: 8
ASHTON CLASSIC IMPERIAL(Dominican Republic)
This is a Corona made with vintage Dominican tobaccos handcrafted by Fuente. A truly luxurious cigar that is mild and creamy with hints of caramel and white chocolate. Primo Strength Rating: 3
AVO XO INTERMEZZO (Dominican Republic)
Fermented Dominican filler and a Connecticut shade grown wrapper make this robusto-shaped stick one smooth and creamy smoke. You will experience different earthy notes with a hint of charcoal. Medium in body and terrific any time of the day. Primo Strength Rating: 5
superior value at $42.95 (retail value: $60.00) - while supplies last!
PRIMO'S CIGAR TIP OF THE WEEK: Save those tubes after enjoying the cigars. They have many storage possibilities and there is always someone that can make good use of them: knitters can put needles in them, fishermen can put swivels and leaders in them, crafters can put beads in them, folks coming back from Colorado can put....oh well, never mind.
