Three generations of the Nafilyan family have experienced and participated as connoisseurs of fine tobacco. Founder of the Nafilyan Cigar Co., Pierre Nafilyan, made his first presence in the cigar industry in the 1980's when he co-developed, manufactured and marketed the "Knockando Cigar Line" and as a direct result of the success of that line, introduced the Nafilyan Series soon thereafter. Nafilyan personally participates in the selection of the tobacco blends and overseas the production of his newest line which is rolled at his factory at Villa Gonzalez in Santiago, Dominican Republic. The Nafilyan Signature Series is made with from a four-blend aged Cuban-seed and Dominican long filler tobacco and binder. Coveted U.S.A. Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf is used to encase each cigar. Each cigar produced undergoes a six-point quality control inspection that stems from tobacco selection through the final packaging process. The Signature Series is available in 4 shapes & sizes, three of which you will have the pleasure of trying this month. In addition to this month's featured selections, Nafilyan also rolls a 7 x 48 Gran Corona. The line has been highly rated in Smoke Magazine, Wine & Dine, and Cigar Lovers.

We found this Churchill to be silky to the touch, slightly oily, well rolled with just the right firmness and generally very appealing. We couldn't wait to light it. Smoke pulled through the cigar very well and it burned slowly and evenly. Look for a very smooth, rich, mild to medium-bodied tasting cigar with s light, spicy character, with some earthy tones evident. We found the aroma to be very pleasant, but not overwhelming. The aftertaste was a mild and somewhat spicy experience. We'd suggest pairing it with your favorite Pale Ale or Chardonnay.
