DomRey's Mike Chiusano went down to the Dominican Republic with the intention of producing a world-class cigar with classic flavor and the "punch" he felt was missing in other Dominican smokes. And that's exactly what he got. The Cusano Hermanos line has loads of character, good straightforward flavor, and enough strength to appeal to the connoisseur, without overpowering the palate. It's really all you could want in a cigar. Twenty minutes north of Santiago on the road to Puerto Plata, is the Navarette region of the Dominican Republic. Within this major tobacco region is one of the secrets of Cusano Hermanos cigars: the DomRey plantation has grown tobacco for as long as anyone can remember and no chemical pesticides have ever been used. When asked about the advantages of organically grown tobacco, Michael Chiusano, president of DomRey said, "Organically grown tobacco contains no chemical pesticide residue and is not infused with chemical fertilizer. While chemical fertilizer tends to enhance crop yield it can also cause the tobacco to retain less of the natural sweet flavor that our cigars are known for. Taste a Hermanos before you light it and you will understand the difference." A rare blend of five tobaccos, two Dominican and two Cuban seed are combined to create what Smoke magazine called "a World Class Cigar." This line comes as highly praised as any we've featured. Cigar Weekly dubbed it "A New Classic". Cigar Aficionado's Cigar Insider ranked it in the "Top 50 brands in the World" and Smoke Magazine placed it in the "Top 20 Cuban-Like brands in the World!" You're gonna want more!
In a word…WOW! We had the fortunate opportunity to speak with Michael Chiusano himself and let him describe for you what to look for in this smoke. His comments reflected our panel's review identically. "The Cusano Hermanos line is DomRey's flagship line. The one that put us on the map. It's first year out it was rated by Smoke as Highly recommended in the company of only two other smokes, Padron's Anniversario and Fonseca's Triangular. The cigar you're about to smoke is the same great cigar with 4.5 additional years of aging! Produced by Davidoff, it's no surprise that it's construction is perfect in every way. Note a perfect draw and lots of smoke volume. The wrapper is thick and oily and offers a very slow burn. You'll get tons of flavor without the bite, burn or any trace of harshness. This is a full bodied, mellow, incredibly smooth cigar. Pair it with Tawny Port or beefy brandy.
