Manufactured in the Costa Rican factory Tabacalera Tambor under the supervision of Don Douglas and Tony Borhani, manufacturer of Bahia cigars, the Pintor cigars are just what you'd expect them to be... A high quality, well constructed, complex and flavorful smoke. Don Douglas's family were among the best tobacco growers in the 1930's in Minnesota. Tabacalera Tambor is Costa Rica's only Premium cigar manufacturer and produces cigars in limited numbers from the most select tobacco in the world. The company prides itself on its Cuban heritage and 40 years experience making super premium cigars. The Pintor line was first introduced in July 1998 and is available only in very limited quantities. The filler tobaccos are both Cuban-seed Dominican and Nicaraguan Ligero, the binder, Sumatran-seed Ecuadorian Olor and the wrapper is also a Colorado Maduro Sumatran-seed Ecuadorian leaf. Each cigar features tobacco from the same year's harvest, which is aged and cured prior to the third fermentation. The cigars are then rolled and aged again for an additional twelve months prior to being distributed. The Pintor line comes in four sizes, two of which you'll sample this month. Our panel found the smokes to be deserving of Tony Borhani's name and think that you're really going to enjoy these rich, full flavored smokes.

Immediately note a very well constructed cigar offering a cool, even burn and billows of smoke. We found it to be a medium-bodied and packed with a rich and complex flavors including some leathery tones, a hint of nuttiness and toasted characteristics. We also found it to be somewhat peppery. Overall, a great smoke that hits your palate from several directions at once! Consider pairing it with a semi-sweet, woody port or robust, roasted Porter.
