Amendola Family Cigar Co announces new cigars
Amendola Family Cigar Co. announces new cigars. The new brands are additions to the Cannoli line. Late last year, Amendola Family Cigar Co. came out with the Cannoli Red. And now with the Cannoli Green, and the Cannoli White. Red, green, and white, the colors of the Italian flag. Cannoli is an Italian dessert. That makes this line a nod to the Italian American heritage of the Amendola family.
Jeffrey Amendola and Christopher Monaco came up with the Cannoli concept based on their lifestyle. The Cannoli brands are dessert cigars, as they pair perfectly with coffee or after drinks. Jeffrey, an experienced blender, and cigar roller created the blends along with Christopher. They work together with Erik Espinosa of La Zona Cigar Factory to manufacture the brands.
The Signature Series Cannoli Green (Sumatra) is made in Nicaragua. This blend is cloaked in a beautiful light brown silky Sumatra wrapper with all Nicaraguan binder and filler. The Green Cannoli delivers floral notes along with bread, cashews, and cedar on the front end, with nuances of pepper/spice, cinnamon, sweet tobacco, and citrus on the finish/retro. A medium takes on what the original Cannoli red blend is, the Green Cannoli is full flavor, medium to full-bodied featuring subtle complexities. Offered in one vitola, a 5.5×42 corona
Signature Series Cannoli White (Ecuadorian Sade Grown Connecticut), is covered in a gorgeous Ecuadorian shade-grown Connecticut wrapper. The White Cannoli exudes flavor with notes of white pepper, heavy cream, buttercream, and coffee on the front end with nuances of nuts, cedar, and sweet tobacco on the finish/retro. Mild to medium in strength and body. The White Cannoli was created as the perfect coffee cigar. The Cannoli White comes in one vitola, a 5.5×42 corona.
Signature Series Cannoli Red (Mexican San Andreas) was released last year. It features a Mexican San Andres wrapper with Nicaraguan binder and filler. This cigar is only available as a box-pressed Corona.
Christopher Monaco Principal of Amendola Family Cigar states: “The Cannoli Series is a special project for Jeffrey and me. We made a promise to incorporate our Italian American heritage into every blend we create.
