My friend Rafael “Rafa” Nodal told me about one of his trips to Spain. Upon his arrival to the hotel he learned that he was upgraded to a luxury suite by the management – at no charge. He knew instantly that they confused him for the famous tennis player because his business class seat on “Iberia” airline was upgraded to First Class for the same reason. But after last week, as Rafa Nodal’s “Aging Room” cigar was crowned at the top position in the Best Cigar of The Year contest by Cigar Aficionado magazine, Rafa Nodal became a big celebrity on his own right. The Best cigar of the Year - Aging Room Quattro Cigar Sampler is dedicated to Rafa Nodal and all the years of hard work, dedication and love of cigars he put in to get to this major achievement!

Aging Room Quattro F55 Stretto (4 1/2 x 46) Aging Room Quattro F55 cigars are box pressed small-batch cigars sporting an obscure Sumatra wrapper aged nine years. This vitola is the smaller of the Quattro collection. Expect full-bodied robust flavors orchestrated by this particular wrapper. Here is a rich and meaty smoke with earthy notes, some pepper, cream and a sweet caramel finish worthy of an ovation.
Aging Room Havao Largo (7 x 50) Aging Room Havao is the second cigar released under the Boutique Blends cigar brand umbrella. This niche cigar brings Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade into the BB wrapper repertoire. This cigar is a very solid smoking experience. This is a Dominican Puro with all high quality components grown of DR origin. The boutique aged binder and filler are Dominican Havano Criollo. A smooth silky wrapper with few veins or seams is double banded with a classic flavor profile of creamy wood.
