FrontRunner: Select Smoke

<< Back to Robb Report, February 2006

     

    Puros AchEPuros Indios cigar company founder Rolando Reyes dictated the formula for Puros Ache, a Honduran blend with flavors as distinct as its moniker (Spanish for “pure luck,” not “pure ache”). In particular, the buttery wrapper of the medium-bodied Colorado Claro Churchill will charm even the most jaded smoker with its complex nose and subtle pepper flavor. This easy-smoking yet unique-tasting cigar is available in eight sizes and five different wrapper leaves, including an uncommon candela (green). ($160 for a box of 20 Churchills) 866.907.8767
