Man O’ War recently collaborated with hit reality show Orange County Choppers to bring you this very limited cigar. Handcrafted by the legendary master blender A.J. Fernandez in Esteli, Nicaragua, this limited edition smoke is a collaboration with the owner of Orange County Choppers, Paul Teutul, a.k.a. Paul Sr. They set out to create a blend that was powerful yet refined, just like the custom motorcycles created at OCC. Paul Sr. was recently asked about the project and said: “There is definitely some synergy between motorcycles and premium hand rolled cigars. I’m certain that many of our customers and possibly even some of our crew like to relax with the occasional cigar. Not to mention motorcycles and cigars are both hobbies people are very passionate about.” The cigar itself features a dark, oily, and toothy Ecuadorian Habano Sun Grown wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and a powerful blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers that once lit will lead to rich flavors of tobacco, pepper, wood, caramel, and spices. Delicious from start to finish this full-bodied smoke will pair beautifully with a pilsner after a good ride on your bike!
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
