The J.L. SALAZAR y HERMANOS Reserva Especial Churchill Cigars are typical Cuban style Box-Pressed Cigars. This bundle of 20 cigars is a limited time special and once we run out, it's back to them in a box, at a higher price. The fine cigars are silky, smooth and perfectly hand made. Their distinguished complex taste is full-bodied with well balanced sweet floral flavors and hints of mild spices, cocoa, coffee and chocolate. The master rollers have handmade each cigar to draw firmly and to burn evenly, and with ultra premium tobacco leaves that were aged for over three years and specially cured through four fermentations. This is the time-honored way that the Salazar brother made them in Cuba.
J.L. Salazar y Hermanos Reserva Especial Churchill cigar is handmade with fine Cuban-seed Habano long-filler leaves that are sun-grown. The Binder is a wrapper quality Cuban-Seed Habano 2000 leaf and the Wrapper is a flawless Ecuadorian grown Cuban Seed Habano leaf. Churchills are an elegant 7 1/4” long with a large ring gauge of 52. The cigars are box-pressed and handmade in the same old fashioned way that the Salazar Family made them in Cuba.
Since 1810, when the Salazar family settled in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba, they have been growing some of the world’s finest tobacco, and handcrafting fine premium Cuban cigars. At 12 noon every day, the 4 Salazar brothers would meet in the porch of elder brother Mario’s house in the farm. Mario would open his burlap bag which contained the finest tobacco leaves of the farm’s harvest. The cured leaves were perfect in looks and taste, and were the envy of the other tobacco farmers in Cuba’s prime tobacco growing region. The burlap bag would be passed around and each brother would roll their own Cuban cigars. They would each roll enough for the day’s smoke. Each would have a different preferred cigar size but the blend would always be the same for all four brothers.
Mario’s sons, J.L. Salazar and his brothers, have carried on that tradition and special blend of tobacco leaves in these exquisite boutique premium cigars. The J.L. Salazar y Hermanos Cabinet Selection are each totally handmade by master Cuban cigar rollers. They use the secret Salazar Brothers’ blend, which consists of only the best tasting and finest looking Cuban Seed tobacco leaves. The mellow and rich taste is unmatched. After trying these, you too will know why J.L. Salazar and his brothers are so proud of their family’s traditions.
