The El Galan brand isn't exactly a household word yet, but it won't take long based on the first group of releases.
The El Galan Reserva Especial has been crafted by Felix Mesa, the Cuban-born blender behind the El Galan name. Hailing from his Esteli, Nicaragua factory, these gems sport a rich brown Habano wrapper, binder and long-fillers, all grown in Nicaragua. All four vitolas are box pressed, but it's more like the traditional Cuban pressing, which isn't as firmly done, leaving the cigars somewhat rounded.
This is a full-bodied cigar with cedar, leather and bold spices, although it remains well-balanced and nuanced. Give this one a try and we're sure you'll be enjoying El Galan cigars regularly.
