This is the beginning of a legend.
Felix Mesa comes from three generations of Cuban cigar makers, and now that he's struck out on his own to create El Galan in the fertile lands of Nicaragua, a whole new chapter is being written. This entry, El Galan Semilla Cubana Habano is a gorgeous-looking cigar with a chestnut-hued Habano wrapper. It's medium to full-bodied, with notes of cedar, leather and an earthiness. A pleasant splash of spice is present throughout, but it never dominates the flavor. This is one cigar that will leave you wondering how something this good could be so reasonably priced.
