The Monarch is a delightful medium strength blend of premium Criollo Volado, Seco and Ligero long leaf tobaccos. Volado grows closest to the rich soil and the oils contained in the
large leaves contribute to the bold structure and even burning of the cigar. Seco (The Middle Leaf) tempers the Volado with richness and a touch of creaminess and Ligero (The Top Leaf) adds savory aromatics and plush mouthfeel. The dark Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper finishes the cigar, cloaking it in savory, toasty spice. The Monarch is big, but not overpowering. Bold, but not bitter. Rich, but not cloying. A sensational medium bodied smoking experience.
