Fonseca Reserva Especial, Matasa

The handsome oily wrapper on the latest Fonseca cigar, a 7 x 52 figurado, is one of the finest specimens of Honduran criollo leaf we have seen. The slightly strong, spicy flavor is a pleasant complement to the mild 7-year-old Dominican-grown Cuban-seed filler. The availability of the cigars, which have been aged for three months, is extremely limited; only 1,000 mahogany chests—each containing 50 cigars—will be released. Manuel Quesada, the company’s owner and the creator of the Reserva Especial blend, personally signed each numbered humidor.
