The cigar is made by J Fuego Cigar Company and owner Jesus Fuego promotes it as their top of the line brand. It uses aged tobacco in the entire blend and at 6 years old, the binder is the youngest tobacco in the cigar. With such a mix of aged tobacco I was expecting something packing a lot of flavor. This particular line “The Connoisseur” is a very new release that only started shipping to stores this past April 2013 and, according to my research, most stores started receiving their batches in May and June. I’ve never tried a cigar from this manufacturer so while in Chicago recently I happened to come across it and decided to give it a shot. It’s always good to venture out of one’s comfort zone in the hopes of finding something new.

J. Fuego is one of a number of relatively new, "boutique" cigar brands that are taking the cigar world by storm. Founded just a few years ago in 2006 by Jesus Fuego (whose familial involvement in the cigar industry extends all the way back to 1876 in Cuba), the J. Fuego brand has quickly expanded to include five different lines, as well as the spin-off 777 brand. Sangre de Toro (which translates to "Bull's Blood") is the newest line, released in Spring 2011, and the Original is the newest vitola, released at ICPCR 2011. Jesus Fuego has described the tobacco used in the Sangre de Toro line as "heavy and well-aged stuff," and the Original vitola showcases all the richness that this tobacco can deliver. The Originals come five to a soft pack, and the very attractive design on the pack mimics the design on the Sangre de Toro bands; however, the Originals themselves are unbanded.
