Cigar of the Week: Pinar del Rio Clasico

Pinar del Rios are hand-made in the Dominican Republic by people who have cigar smoke in their veins – it’s a multi-generation family business. The Clasico is the third blend released by the company and it features a Connecticut wrapper, a Dominican binder and filler leaves from Dominicana and Nicaragua. Thanks to the Connecticut leaf, the smoke is rather creamy but it does pack some pepper as well. Overall, a good mild to medium cigar with lots of flavor.

  • Bryan did a video review of this cigar and seems to be rather satisfied.
  • Toasted Foot also claims that this is a very soothing cigar that can be enjoyed any time of the day.
  • Cigarfan from Keepers of the Flame confirms that this is a great morning or after-lunch stick.
