Got Your 6

 Taking its name from military slang meaning, “I have your back,” Got Your 6 is an innovative new cigar from the makers of Puro Ambar. The cigar is visually striking and uses 4 different wrapper leaves and a hearty 3 country blend to deliver a smoke that is rich and smooth.
Hailing from the Dominican Republic, the cigar utilized 4 different wrappers to mimic camouflage. With a main Connecticut wrapper, the camo pattern is completed with Candela, Sumatra, and Habano leaf. The complex blend is completed with a Dominican Olor binder and Dominican Criollo ‘98 ligero and seco, and Nicaraguan and Pennsylvanian long-fillers. Flavors include notes of spice, cream, pepper, earth, leather, and wood which set the table for a thoroughly satisfying smoke.

Ave Maria St. George

Ave Maria is one of the most exceptional premiums we’ve seen come out of Nicaragua. This phenomenal blend offers a medium to full body with layers of complex aromas.

Ave Maria is truly a one-of-a-kind cigar. The blend is masterfully balanced to be enjoyed morning, noon or night. Its hearty, well-aged fillers create a steady medium to full body while its tasty wrapper creates a ton of unique, enjoyable flavors.

Ave Maria contains a massive amount of thick, Nicaraguan long leaves all masked by a premium Ecuadorian-grown Habano wrapper, fermented to perfection. The result creates a bold burst of leather and wood with light spices throughout that perfectly round out the finish. With an earthy aroma and some cedar notes on the finish, Ave Maria will easily satisfy most aficionados.

CAO Italia, Full and spicy!

When one thinks of Italy, premium cigar tobacco is usually not the first thought. But for CAO, so accustomed to pushing the boundaries of flavor, this is where they discovered some very unique tobaccos. This particular tobacco is grown in the Benevento region of Italy and offers an enjoyable sweetness backed ever so slightly by a toasted earthiness. When combined with a lusciously dark Habano-seed wrapper leaf grown in Honduras and a select blend of fine filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and Peru, the result of this intricate 4-country blend is an incredibly rich, robust, and complex smoke. Adding to CAO’s already sterling reputation, the Italia received a ’91’ rating and has been named one of the Best Cigars of the Year by Cigar Aficionado

Mild, smooth and loaded with crisp, soothing flavors that can satisfy just about any connoisseur, the Connecticut by Rocky Patel is, simply put, another outstanding super premium from one of the hottest makers in the business today.

La Aurora Corojo

A new blend from a veteran factory.

La Aurora is oldest factory in the Dominican Republic, but despite their age, they continue to produce new, unique blends that cater to the industry’s constantly evolving palates. And their latest effort, La Aurora Corojo, is just one of many examples. An oily, well-fermented Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper hugs a rich blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers, producing a medium-bodied smoke that’s layered with notes of earth, spices, cedar, and a hint of raisin on the finish. As the cigar progresses, the spice builds and the body follows suit leading to an exciting, medium to full-bodied finale.

CAO Pilon

CAO piles on the flavor

CAO is known for their laundry list of 90+ rated blends and for being one of the most innovative brands in the industry.  With their new release, CAO Pilon, they are resurrecting a seldom used and costly fermentation method, the circular pilon. A standard tobacco pilon is basically a pile of tobacco ‘hands,’ which are 10-15 tobacco leaves tied together, that are allowed to heat up and ferment. With a circular pilon the hands are carefully layered in a circular pattern, with the payoff being that the tobacco ferments at a slower rate which enhances the flavor.  CAO Pilon comes dressed in a dazzling Ecuador Habano wrapper, encasing the binder and long-fillers from Nicaragua. This cigar is medium-bodied and packs flavor in droves with delicious notes of spice, cedar, pepper, nuts, and cocoa. CAO Pilon is a rich and hearty blend that continues CAO’s string of hits.

Drew Estate Copper Label


Jonathan Drew is a creative force, formulating some of the industry’s most innovative cigars. His inspiration for the ‘Copper Label’ was a fusion of ACID, Natural, and traditional blends….and he nailed it. Hugged by a beautiful Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, this stunning handmade combines bold Nicaraguan long-fillers with a leaf of Dominican Piloto. These lush tobaccos have been carefully influenced by the delicious nuances of amaretto and hazelnut, completing a savory experience. After a sweet start, it coats the palate with loads of creamy smoke, offering a rich core of coffee flavors complemented by notes of hazelnut and pepper. Mild to medium-bodied and oh-so-enjoyable.

Alec Bradley Coyol


In Alec Bradley’s newest venture, he pays tribute to the rich soils that have produced the next hallmark in the Alec Bradley lineup. A classic, retro-feeling brand that’s bold and complex, Alec Bradley Coyol features a Honduran wrapper plus Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers with unique tobaccos from a farm named Coyol, giving this robust blend a one-of-a-kind taste. Known for the highest of quality control and its numerous 90-plus-rated hit-makers such as Prensado and Tempus, Coyol hails from the Raices Cubanas factory of Honduras. The Coyol farm became the inspiration behind this blend after AB owner Alan Rubin fell in love with the aroma and taste of the tobaccos that this revered farm produces. This celebrated tobacco can be found in every aspect of the Coyol blend. Wrapper, binder, and filler all have Coyol farm tobaccos making an appearance. A bold, medium-bodied profile with notes of earth, leather, and spice flourish around the palate from first light. Subtly sweet notes of cherry and nutmeg are also present on the finish. Yet another masterpiece from Alec Bradley…par for the course these days.
