Saint Luis Rey Serie G Cigars: A Modern Day Classic!
For this blog, let’s turn back the clock about 18 years or so, and talk about one of the best Honduran brands to ever come down the pike—the incomparable Saint Luis Rey Serie G cigars.
Released in the very early 2000s, and manufactured by Altadis U.S.A., home to some of the world’s most popular brands, these top-notch cigars are available in two compelling blends. The first consists of a golden-brown EMS Nicaraguan wrapper that conceals a Nicaraguan binder with aged Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos used for the long-fillers. Then, to seduce the Maduro crowd, the cigars are presented with a thick, oily, coal-black Connecticut Broadleaf Oscuro wrapper over a sturdy Nicaraguan binder, and a blend of the finest ligero Nicaraguan filler leaves.
When choosing the lighter wrapped Serie G, expect a mouthful of bold flavors that include earth, leather, wood, and cocoa, enhanced with a nice spicy kick. When covered by the sumptuous Oscuro leaf, you’ll savor a smoke that’s oozing with heady notes of chocolate, earth, pepper, black cherry, and espresso.
Either way, a luxurious full-bodied Cuban-style smoking experience awaits you.
Furthermore, in case you didn’t already know, the “G” in these beauties from Saint Luis Rey, stands for GIGANTE— and that’s what you get with these overstuffed 54-plus ring vitolas, available in a nice variety of popular lengths, ranging from 4.25 to 7- inches.
Saving the best part for last, these impeccably rolled classic Honduran gems, are available in singles, 5-packs, and boxes of 20, ( depending on which size that you choose), all boasting a surprisingly affordable price!
