Tatuaje Monsters MBS Limited Edition
Manufactured in Nicaragua at the My Father Factory, the new edition to the Tatuaje Monsters line is finally here! Released once a year around Halloween, Tatuaje fans are in for a treat when it comes to MBS Limited Edition. Most limited-edition cigars are geared towards an Aficionados palate because most cigar aficionados have tried and enjoyed all of the other lines under the specific brand.
Being interestingly named as well as extremely flavorful, the Cuban style MBS LE has a San Andres wrapper while having binder and filler tobaccos hailing from Nicaragua. Some flavor notes you’ll detect while smoking the Tatuaje MBS are earth, pepper, spiced-apple, cedar, and black cherries on the back end. These medium-bodied smokes are available on our website for a limited time only.
Padron 1926 Series
A cigar fit for the rich and famous, the Padron 1926 Series was initially created to celebrate Jose Padron’s 75th birthday. Consisting of the finest tobaccos that are aged for ten years, the Padron 1926 Series will leave your mouth watering and wanting more. If you’re able to enjoy smoking the 1926 Series, you’ll experience fully flavored deliciousness throughout the smoke.
Padron 1926 in the No. 90 Tubo Maduro is a full-bodied, Nicaraguan puro. Delicious flavor notes you’ll pinpoint while smoking the No. 90 Tubo Maduro is cocoa, caramel, spice, and leather.

Davidoff Special 53 Limited Edition
With a limited release in small batch quantity in 2002, Davidoff is bringing back the Special 53 Limited Edition line eighteen years later, and seasoned cigar smokers are thrilled! The Davidoff Special 53 LE Capa Dominicana was created in a unique 53-ring gauge in the Perfecto size. Tobaccos that make up the wrapper, binder, and filler were aged up to ten years and hail from different regions in the Dominican Republic.
There are very few Dominicna Puro cigars throughout the industry. That’s what makes the Davidoff Special 53 LE Capa Dominicana so rare and sought after. Some flavor notes you’ll detect while smoking the Capa Dominicana are wood, coffee, spice, cocoa, and dried fruit. Most Aficionados are extremely knowledgeable of the reputation Davidoff proceeds. So, it was rather obvious to include this limited-edition Davidoff to the list.
Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra de Saka
An enormously popular cigar line from Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust is the Muestra de Saka Unstolen Valor was expertly crafted by Steve Saka himself. Saka was challenged by friend and general manager of the NACSA factory, Raul Disla, to create a personal smoke with the best recipe out there. So, what did Saka do once he accepted the challenge? He used the finest aged tobacco from the four primary growing regions of the country (Jalapa, Condega, Ometepe, and Esteli).
We love the luxurious and classy Unstolen Valor here at JR because it’s a full-bodied, Nicaraguan puro. The sophisticated and complex flavor notes that flow throughout the Unstolen Valor is pepper, cedar, espresso, and hints of cinnamon on the back end. If you want to take a step towards becoming an aficionado, then this 6 x 52 Parejo is a must-have in your humidor!
Joya de Nicaragua Numero Uno
Once produced for special occasions only, the Joya de Nicaragua Numero Uno L’Ambassadeur was created for Nicaraguan ambassadors to hand out to world leaders when they would meet. Now Joya de Nicaragua releases the L’Ambassaduer in small batch quantity, producing only 1,500 boxes worldwide. In 2019, the Numero Uno L’Ambassadeur elevates to a core-line product under Joya de Nicaragua.
Blended by Dr. Alejandro M. Cuenca, this medium-bodied smoke has an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, with binder and filler tobaccos hailing from Nicaragua. Available in a 6 5/8 x 44 size, the L’Ambassadeur has flavor notes of nuts, citrus, floral, cream, and toast. You may ask yourself why would this specific cigar be good for an Aficionado?
