This charming new addition to the popular Petrus line was a smashing success in Europe, where Petrus cigars have been popular since their introduction. Created by Philip Wynne of Felipe Gregorio cigars, Petrus was pretty much a failure when first released in the states back in 1989. The cigar industry in the states back then was very green, with American cigar seekers not yet accustomed to fuller-bodied cigars. As such, Petrus did not sell well here (though it did quite well in Europe and the Middle East where palates were accustomed to higher intensity smokes). As the U.S. cigar boom came, domestic cigar smokers developed more sophisticated palates. Eventually, Philip recognized that it was time for Petrus to be reborn. It was re-released in 2000. The Petrus Etiquette Rouge is a bit different, though equally as good. These cigars are made with Nicaraguan, Dominican and Honduran tobaccos that have been carefully aging since 2000, and the years of mellowing of this rich blend has resulted in a depth of character and complexity of flavor that is tough to match. The Ecuadorian grown, Connecticut seed, shade grown wrapper is silky smooth and quite flavorful. Of particular note is the pre-burn aroma, with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Look for mild spices with notes of toasted caramel and a touch of cinnamon. This well-balanced smoke burns slow and smokes cool. A good partner to the morning news and coffee.
