The second cigar in the La Barba portfolio is a stunner. Produced by Tony Bellatto and Craig Rossi in the Dominican Republic at Tabaclera William Ventura. The wrapper has a nice creamy brown color with distinguished leaf lines. I get a soft pepper from the wrapper. Cold draw has some earthy and tobacco notes that are smooth.
Brand: La Barba Cigars
Wrapper: HVA Habano Ecuadorian
Binder: Dominican Corojo
Filler: Corojo, HVA Habano and a rare varietal called Carbonell
Size: Robusto 5.0 x 50
Overall a fantastic smoke that I highly suggest getting a box of. La Barba has really stepped up their game, learning from the first cigar (Red) and improving both in quality and flavor profiles. If you see this in your local B&M dont hesitate to pull the trigger and buy. You can also find this cigar at cigarfly.com, be sure to add LaBarba Purple in your order notes.
