This is Neil and Gerard with MardoCigars.com
and we’ve been at this for a long time on
this wonderful journey in the cigar industry
for many, many years. Now we want to share
all of our experience with you. So stay tuned.
So now, Gerard is going to go over our picks
for top five cigars for a road trip. So without
further ado, G, tell them about our morning
Absolutely. So within our five-pack, we have
morning sticks that we’re going to talk about.
This is the FQ Phenom. This is the number
one Churchill-size in a Connecticut wrapper.
I recommend this cigar because you’re going
to be moseying around in the morning, taking
a late start. This is a phenomenal cigar that
will pair with your coffee. It’s nice and
mild. It’s not too diluted. It’s got a lot
of flavor, a lot of toastiness and nuttiness
in there as well. It’s going to last about
an hour. So I highly recommend the FQ Phenom.
Also, this is a Fernandez family, they’re
meticulous about their product, they’re truly
boutique and they only come out with about
a thousand boxes throughout the whole entire
year. So that’s why I chose FQ, because it’s
boutique, it’s a very elegant cigar. So that’s
going to be one of the morning smokes that
I’m going to recommend.
Second morning stick that I’m going to recommend.
This beauty right here is a Lancero. This
thing is phenomenal, gets a lot of great ratings
it’s the Southern Draw, Rose of Sharon, Lancero.
For the price-point, it’s one of the best
Lancero’s on the market. So, this Rose of
Sharon is definitely on my top list for morning
smoke. Pairs very well with coffee as well.
If you guys are not familiar with the Rose
of Sharon, they were rated 100 and so I got
to have that in there.
So, that’s another one of my top picks for
a morning smoke. All right, so next we’re
going to talk about in the mid-day cigar.
For me, a mid-day cigar would be something
a little bit, not too strong, not too mild,
but full flavor. I want a lot of abundance
within my smoke. When I say abundance, I mean
abundance of flavors. I like it complex. I
chose Aladino, and I went with the Gordo because
I want a lot more tobacco in there. Aladino,
if you guys are not familiar with Aladino,
they’re the ones who created the Camacho brand
and they sold it to Davidoff. They had a five-year
non-compete contract. So, once that contract
was up, they came up with their own brand,
Aladino, under JRE Tobacco, this is all Honduran.
It is their natural Aladino, and this is a
definitely a beauty. I love the size. It’s
not too strong, not too mild, as I said. So,
for you guys as a mid-day smoke, you want
some of that flavor but you don’t want it
to overpower, I highly recommend something
from Aladino for sure.
Make sure you guys comment below in the comments.
And let us know some sticks that you like
to take on a road trip with you.
I definitely want to know.
Keep going, G.
All right. Then we’re going to go right into
our after-dinner cigar. So, this is going
to be something that’s going to give you a
lot more pepper hint, spicy. It’s going to
be a little bit stronger in nicotine as well
as in flavor. So this is another beautiful
new cigar on the market called Antigua Esteli.
Obviously, Esteli being Nicaraguan, this is
a Nicaraguan cigar and this has a Habano Oscuro
wrapper on it. Now, this cigar to me, has
the characteristics of, kind of like a Padron
Anniversario. The reason why I chose this
cigar is because it’s newer on the market,
so I want to introduce a lot of new smokers
to something very new. Also Art Garcia, the
the brain behind this brand, at the recent
IPCPR trade show, he won for the size of his
He won best of the trade show and that was
pretty cool award for the guy. Many top hitters,
heavy hitters, like I consider Skip Martin,
those guys from RoMa have smoked this and
they posted on their our personal Instagram
that this thing was solid. So there you go.
That’s why we want to include this as one
of the after cigars for the guys that want
something a little bit stronger, more to it.
So, okay, so next we’re going to talk about,
speaking of Skip Martin and RoMa Craft. This
actually came out of the Nica Sueño factory,
which was their factory in Nicaragua. Now
this looks small, but don’t let it fool you.
This is a Guaimaro box-press, Corona, all
Nicaraguan. A little bit of history under
… Excuse me, after Guaimaro. Guaimaro is
Disla’s nickname. So Disla is the master blender
for Nica Sueño, which makes the RoMa Craft,
They make Fable cigars, but this, Guaimaro
right here … Why I chose Corona, is because
it packs a lot of flavor. The wrapper ratio
to the filler and the binder is just perfect
in this cigar. It’s just going to be a perfect
dessert cigar after dinner. It will satisfy
your palate. I don’t care how big of a guy
you are. I don’t care how an amazing, developed
palate you may have, give this thing a try.
Don’t judge a book by its cover, as they say.
So don’t judge the cigars by its size. It
will definitely impress. So, Guaimaro Corona
box-pressed as another after-dinner cigar.
