Herbal notes of hay and sweet grass seduce your senses and foreshadow the pleasures to come from smoking this cigar.
Initial flavours of bay leaves and green tea introduce the first third of the draw after toast. The second third features undertones of caffè latte with hints of beechwood in a creamy mouthfeel.

SUMMARY OF CIGAR EXPERIENCE
The green hues of this cigar are created by harvesting the wrapper leaf while still green on the stalk and curing the leaves quickly to lock in the natural chlorophyll colour of the leaves. Candela was once the most popular style of cigar in the United States (often called American Market Selection for this reason) and a favourite smoke of President John F. Kennedy. Candela cigars are now considered a throw-back to the golden age of cigar smoking.
Winston Churchill said ‘Smoking cigars is like falling in love. First, you are attracted by its shape; you stay for its flavour, and you must always remember never, never to let the flame go out!’ Whether a passionate quickie or a long love affair, enjoy your time with this cigar.
