Oscar Valladares 10th
Since 2012, I have enjoyed the rich Honduran-centric blends that Oscar Valladares Cigars makes, and with the brand celebrating its 10-year anniversary with Oscar Valladares 10th Anniversary, I knew I had to get some for my humidor. With such a momentous occasion for the young, growing brand, these celebratory treats are sure to be good!
My first introduction to Oscar Valladares Cigars was with the 2012 by Oscar. Inspired by the resetting of the Mayan calendar and the popular notion that the calendar ending coincided with the end of the world. Complete with Mayan theming and an extra cigar in the box to celebrate the world not ending, the 2012 by Oscar captured myself and the rest of the market with its creativity and top-notch blending.
Another big hit that helped cement Oscar Valladares Cigars’ place in the market was the Leaf by Oscar. Traditionally, cigars are packaged individually in cellophane sleeves to help protect the wrapper, but Oscar’s creativity knows no bounds. Leaf by Oscar instead sheds the cellophane in favor of cloaking the cigars in a tobacco leaf that matches the wrapper of each of the four Leaf by Oscar blends.
With the Oscar Valladares 10th Anniversary, Oscar’s creativity shines through once again. Surrounding a core of Nicaraguan long fillers that have been extensively aged for over 5 years and a hearty Honduran binder lies not only a top-quality Mexican San Andres maduro wrapper, but also a vibrant Honduran Candela wrapper accenting the foot.
This provides me with a complex and transformative medium-full bodied smoke that begins with bright sweet spice and creamy flavors that make way for a tapestry of chocolate, peppery spice, earth, leather, and a dried fruit sweetness. These delectably delicious flavors when paired with the impressive construction makes for a truly unforgettable smoking experience.
Because the fillers are aged for so long, these smokes are only made in small batches. They are offered in three big-ring sizes, including a uniquely shaped Salomon vitola, so you really do not want to miss out on these small-batch gems.
