For those of us who love premium cigars, the leaf known as 'Medio Tiempo' is almost mythical in status. This year, Southern Draw Cigars released a special iteration of the Kudzu called Lustrum. Not only does this cigar contain Medio Tiempo, but it is the wrapper leaf for this new blend. Garret and I each smoked a few, and here is our evaluation.
Balmoral is a brand owned by Royal Agio Cigars. They have been gradually expanding their U.S. presence over the last few years. In 2018 they announced a new line of collaborations under the name Serie Signaturas, and the first cigar would be called Dueto. It is a collaboration with none other than Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. and is made at his factory in the Dominican Republic.
