In order to ensure quality of the highest standard, Rafael Nodal (of Aging Room) makes these cigars in small quantities. Small Batch King No. 8 Churchill Connecticut represents the kind of quality that put Mr. Nodal on the map. The fillers and binder are both from the Dominican Republic and the wrapper is a smooth, creamy Connecticut leaf. This blend creates a well-rounded medium bodied flavor that is a big hit with even the pickiest of pallates.
Wow. This cigar really surprised me - in a very good way
Jun 18, 2019
This cigar really surprised me. It arrived as part of my monthly sampler. Given the price I expected a perfectly average, decent cigar. Instead, I enjoyed a cigar that rivals my Monte Cristos, Davidoffs, and Padrons in my humidor. There is no way a cigar this affordable should be this good, but it definitely is. I was amazed by the smoothness and flavor. Very rich and creamy, mildly earthy on the front end and a little chocolaty on the back end. But oh so very smooth all the way down to the end. It remained smokeable all the way down to a 1/2 inch butt. I only put it down because I just couldn't hold it any more. I have just purchased a whole box to share with my friends. And it pairs really well with practically any 12yr scotch or decent port.
