The BOSS Cigar Company first made their appearance in the tobacco industry in early 1996 with a production run of just over 600 boxes. BOSS’ master blender is a third-generation Cuban tabacalero, whose factory in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, employs five seasoned Cuban master rollers. Even two and a half years later, BOSS is producing just under 1000 boxes per month to ensure the highest of quality. The blend of three Domincan tobaccos lends good balance and depth to the line and a truly satisfying flavor character. The binder and fillers, from the Cibao Valley in Republica Dominica, are aged a full three years for smoothness, while the Indonesian wrapper is aged one year. After being rolled, all cigars are aged another sixty days in cedar-lined humidors. The BOSS line is offered in four sizes including a Robusto, Lonsdale, Toro and Churchill. The cigars, 25 to a box, are cased in Spanish cedar, classical cabinet style. Our panel enjoyed all of the BOSS cigars sampled equally, slightly favoring the Robusto and Toro so those are the two that we’re sharing with you this month.

We really like these cigars. Upon visually inspection, the cigar seemed flawless, no extra folds, cracks, nor wrinkles on the wrapper. The color of the wrapper is light brown, with an inviting shine - a sign of oiliness. The cigar felt firm and substantial. We found it to be a well-balanced, medium-bodied smoke, offering an earthy aroma and solid, rich flavors. The initial taste is subtle - not overpowering. Look for a very slight sweetness, perhaps tones of chocolate, some coffee notes, and an overall rich, satisfying taste. This cigar works well late in the day, either as an afternoon treat or following a not-too-heavy-dinner. The aroma is fragrant. Consider pairing this cigar with either Highland Park or Isle of Jura whisky or a full-bodied Merlot.
