tobaccoasia 37 Davidoff Hong Kong Limited Edition Padron 50th Anniversary Humidor Honduran tradition, a fantastic cigar at a very affordable price while Cumpay, the essential Nicaraguan, is a bold puro with a rounded, smooth taste made of the best native leaf. All are hand made, naturally. Readily available in the region, Azan Tobacco is expanding with an excellent portfolio of various blends made in their Estelí factory in Nicaragua, under the watchful eye of Crisanto Cardenas (San- to) who has been a master blender and cigar roller for over 55 years. All their brands are 100% hand- made by 20 skilled cigar rollers and "buncheros". These exceptional cigars are produced under a vertically integrated boutique organisation, from seeds to premium cigars, hand rolled in the old Cuban tradition of evolution and progressive flavor. Under the Azan Tobacco umbrella are three key brands. The Roberto Duran brand combines the best quality tobacco fillers from Nicaragua and the Latin American region with their super-premium Habana Criollo Colorado wrapper, produced in their plantation in Ecuador. The blend has been carefully balanced by the team of tobacco experts at their factory in Esteli, resulting in a very en- joyable medium to strong and progressive flavor experience. Highly recommended comes Roberto Duran Rio Toa, a beautiful Robusto with a Habano Criollo 98 wrapper in Colorado Claro (natural co- lour) and a combination of Nicaraguan and Latin American tobaccos, resulting in a great medium to full-bodied smoke. Azan, a brand originally created in Cuba by Chinese immigrants, is now produced in Nicara- gua. Azan White is the premium line; the long filler is a combination of especially selected leafs from Jalapa and Estelí in Nicaragua and from Matafina in Brazil. The wrapper is a very fine Ecuadorian Corojo Grande 5 and 6, which contributes to a distinctive sweet flavored cigar. The Neya brand is available in five vitolas; the filler and binder are both Nicaraguan while the wrapper is a Habano Ecuador. And finally, in the limited editions category, will you be one of the lucky few to grab the highly exclusive Padrón 50th Anniversary Humidor? Avail- able from Cigar Ben in Hong Kong and The Wall of Cigar in Macau, these humidors are individually numbered and contain 50 numbered cigars. Pro- duction has been limited to 1,000 humidors and buyers of the humidors will be allowed to pur- chase refills, 50 cigars at a time, when they are made available by Padrón. If you find New Year resolutions hard to hold on to, why not make a new one? Promise to your- self that in 2015 you will enjoy each of these new and exciting products and visit the best and newest smoking lounges in Asia Pacific! Harbour Cigar Divan
