Jose Seijas Signature Series 2000

    Characteristics: An even-burning cigar with a smooth taste, three-year-aged Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Dominican binder, and Dominican, Peruvian, and Nicaraguan fillers. There are seven shapes offered, but our favorite is the torpedo, which starts with a 44 ring, expands to 52, and ends in an easy-to-light perfecto tip. Insider's Tip Jose Seijas is the master blender for Altadis, the world’s largest cigar producer. These cigars are very limited in production and come in an elegant leather-wrapped cedar box with the Seijas signature in gold. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
