Each of these 3,000 cigars (packaged in boxes of 5) has been personally rolled by Santos Cárdenas, one of the most widely recognized Cuban cigar rollers of all times. Santos has been rolling cigars since 1960 and has worked for Por Larrañaga, H. Upmann and Partagas factories in Cuba. Each box of this limited edition has been signed by Santos and is a cigar to treasure. From the same maker, the Azan Maduro Natural Supremo is a new addition to their Maduro limited edition line. Azan Maduro is Azan's strongest blend, with a wrapper that is naturally dark and oily while maintaining the sweetness of the Corojo. The 5 x 58 Supremo is great to smoke now, yet also has a strong aging potential. Very well known in the European markets and registering a strong expansion in the US, Flor de Selva and Cumpay are at last being made available to aficionados in Hong Kong and Macau. Retailing in the 11 Pacific Cigar stores in Hong Kong is their Duo Robusto Flor de Selva & Cumpay. Doubtless the cigar brands that are the most con- nected to a woman, Flor de Selva and Cumpay are respectively crafted in Honduras and Nicaragua and are part of the Maya Selva Cigars collection. The success of these outstanding cigars is a fitting tribute to the values that are Maya Selva's hallmark: strin- gent quality requirements, respect for the land and its communities. Flor de Selva Special 20 Years Edition Lanceros has been created and launched to cel- ebrate the 20th anniversary of the brand last June. However, it has proven to be such a success that Maya Selva has decided to add it to the permanent portfolio and extend the 20th anniversary blend to other vitolas which will be launched this year and will be available in Hong Kong from the Pacific Cigar outlets and later on in the rest of Asia. In The Wall of Cigar, sole retailer of some renowned brands of cigars that are not available or in very limited quantity elsewhere in Asia, can be found Alec Bradley Fine & Rare 2015, a new release in limited quantity from Honduras. Only 2,000 boxes of 10 cigars have been made, a blend of 10 different tobacco leaves, rolled by their best master roller. New releases of the same maker will soon follow with Alec Bradley Post Embargo, a sublime Perfecto celebrating the new ties between Cuba and the USA, an addition to the famed Black Market line which continues to earn ratings of "90" and above… Later in the year, they will also receive Padrón Dámaso: named after Jose Padrón's grandfather who was the first Padrón to arrive in Cuba sometime in the late 1800's from the Canary Islands. The Dámaso line has a mild flavor profile for those who seek the quality, complexity and consistency of Padrón. The Wall has the largest selection of Padrón available in Asia, with more than 40 references. Padrón is highly sought-after and their limited production is not always easy to find outside the USA and Europe. Still on Padrón: if you're one of the lucky owners of their 50th Anniversary Humi- dor, you can now contact your retailer to purchase the yearly refill of cigars.
