The top growers of Mexican San Andrés wrapper leaf also produce an outstanding cigar—the Casa Turrent Serie 1901. It’s named after the Turrent family, prolific producers of Mexican tobacco and creators of the Te-Amo brand, a value-cigar. Previous attempts by the Turrents to break into the upper echelons of the premium sector weren’t terribly successful. That’s changed. The Casa Turrent Serie 1901 launched on the international market in 2013, but didn’t arrive in the U.S. until August 2015.Casa Turrent is the only cigar brand that carries the Turrent name in its title (in 2014, brand owner Alejandro Turrent discontinued all his other Turrent-branded lines). He aims to position Casa Turrent as his company’s flagship premium brand. Judging by the performance of the Casa Turrent 1901 Robusto, he seems well on his way.
To create this beauty, an exceptional blending of aged Nicaraguan and Mexican filler tobaccos are covered with a gorgeous black and oily San Andres wrapper. You can expect fragrant notes of toasty sweet almonds, coffee, wood, warm spice, cinnamon and a smooth creamy sweetness on the exhale. Order a box of 20 Casa Turrent Serie 1901 Gran Robusto’s today and discover how truly delicious a Mexican cigar can be.
