Hot on the heels of the incredible Latitude Zero, we have a limited-availability cigar that has a great backstory. Once again, they've turned to the expert growers at the Oliva Tobacco Company to procure a wrapper you won't find on any other cigar, anywhere. For years, there have been a number of failed attempts to grow Cameroon outside of Africa, but a crop from 2009 showed great promise, and after trying the leaf with a variety of filler blends, they came up with a delectable combination.
Using a Nicaraguan Criollo '98 binder, and more Criollo '98 in the filler, Latitude Zero Experimental boasts a nut-brown 5-year vintage Ecuadorian Cameroon capa that's a joy to behold. There are rich notes of cedar and sweet spices, along with hints of nuts and coffee and a distinct burst of vanilla bean at first light. If you love Cameroon, you'll want to try this one before they're gone.
