Thompson Tusker cigars are smooth tasting with fantastic value. Exclusively created by Victor Sinclair, mild to medium-bodied Tusker cigars are loaded with slow-aged Dominican long fillers.
One of the Dominican Republic’s elder statesmen of cigar manufacturers, José Girbés is something of an elitist. Never one to push production, Girbés has maintained a low profile, low production atelier that is below the radar screen when calling attention to big production numbers. He knows big numbers often do not translate into high quality, and he prefers to expend all his efforts on keeping his beloved namesake cigar the best. To that end, you’ll not likely see a José Girbés cigar competing for ratings against the likes of Montecristo or Macanudo. That’s just not Girbés’ style.Perhaps it’s because he’s content to purchase his tobaccos in minuscule lots so that he can personally examine each bale, keeping tabs on it during its three-year aging. He can personally take a practiced hand in the blending of the exquisite naturally double fermented San Vicente Valley long fillers. He can personally train and oversee his elite cadre of torcedores as they work with prized Brazilian Arapiraca Maduro wrapper leaves. For such reasons as these, José Girbés keeps his production low, very, very low.But that’s why no one, but no one beats José Girbés for consistency. His value prices speak for themselves. Nowhere will you find a better-made cigar at the price of a José Girbés.
The Davidoff Double R, a true Double Corona, is an ideal complement to the Special series. The Double R lends itself towards the full-bodied range. A complex blend of excellent tobaccos of up to four different harvest defines its well-rounded character.
