Alec Bradley Easy 5 Cigar Sampler

Saludos,

Greetings, celebrators of seconds. We at Habana Port have received a huge shipment of Alec Bradley Seconds. Dubbed the Easy Five, these cigars are bundled in a 5 count pack, and are offered in an assortment of sizes (from lonsdales to double coronas and everything in between) and your choice of Connecticut, Habano and Maduro wrappers.
Alright, alright, so more importantly, what is the cost? Each pack retails for $15.95. That’s right…you get 5 cigars from Alec Bradley for under $16. That’s $3.19 a stick for blends that usually retail for more than double. As many of you know, a second is a cigar that has not met the high standards of a cigar manufacturer to receive a band for a higher-priced line. There is nothing wrong with the cigar or tobacco.  The defects are usually aesthetic…maybe there’s a color blemish or the wrapper has a vein. Perhaps a cigar was packed a bit too loose. Or maybe the cigar is not as solid as it should be. The sticks are usually made by beginners so this is a great way for a roller to master his trade. But if all the consumer cares about is the flavor of a cigar blend, then seconds are an intelligent purchase.
So hurry in to any Habana Port Cigar Merchants location (Baton Rouge or Covington) and be the first to buy your packs. Whether the assortment is a Torpedo or Robusto or whether it is a Connecticut or Maduro, each sampler pack costs you $15.95. And once these samplers are gone, there is no guarantee we will see this offering from Alec Bradley again (or at least anytime soon since factories do not try to produce a cigar that meets the lower classification of a second).
FYI, we should list the Easy 5 Cigar Samplers on CigarEarth.com by the end of the week.

Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 1970 Lancero Cigar Review

Saludos,
Greetings, heathens of Joya de Nicaragua. Today, we at Habana Port Cigar Merchants wanted to sample a new cigar arrival for us. It is the Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 1970 Lancero. This vitola is a rather slender and longer format usually reserved for those who are quite refined or who prefer a higher wrapper to filler ratio. Many industry insiders prefer this format. Anyway, we wanted to give the cigar a shot to see how it smoked.
First, we used a punch cutter since the ring gauge is rather small. The lancero smoked wonderfully. It seems to be cleaner than the other Antaño sizes. There were notes of earth, light oak and hazelnut. For us, the cigar lasted about 1 hour and 10 minutes. In summary, we really enjoyed the size. JdN as you may know is Nicaragua’s oldest cigar factory and the Antaño 1970 is a tribute to their founding.
Come in to our shop today to try the Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 1970 Lancero cigar to see for yourself how nice it is or you can purchase it online at CigarEarth.com for $6.59 per single. Click here to order.

A. Fuente Chateau Fuente Cigars

Saludos,
Greetings, fans of Fuente. We want to let you know that the well-known Fuente cigar line named after the famous tobacco farm, the Chateau Fuente is available at discount at http://cigarearth.com/A-Fuente-Chateau-Fuente_c129.htm.
The A. Fuente Chateau Fuente was inspired by the famed tobacco farm dubbed Chateau de la Fuente which is located in the Dominican Republic. The Chateau Fuente cigar line is not only one of the best-selling cigar lines from Arturo Fuente, but it is in fact one of the largest sellers in the cigar industry. Wrapped in a distinctive cedary sleeve and adorned with either a green foot band (for the Natural or Maduro varieties) or black foot band (for the Natural Sungrown), the Chateau Fuente line is very consistent and represents the best in cigar construction and blending. The Natural blend has a more cedary, earthy note, while the Maduro provides a sweet, toasty, mineral profile and the Natural Sun Grown exhibits an earthy, woody & nutty profile.
