Avrae, a selection of handmade cigars created by Joe Wagner to pair well with red wines. By blending tobacco leaf that was grown, cured and fermented at the highest level from some of the world’s best regions, we are able to craft a cigar that respects each region while melding it into a singular style. Named after the nymphs of the north, south, east and west winds in Greek Mythology, Avrae cigars sources premium tobacco from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic while continuing to experiment with other great growers throughout the world, bringing “the winds” together in a range of beautifully balanced cigars.
Very smooth, yet powerful smoke. Nutty undertones, with rich layers of roasted coconut, sweet brown spice and charred cedar. The draw is moderately firm, with the smoke as thick as molasses in the mouth. Upon retrohale, the nuances are augmented, and the complex interaction between mouth feel and flavor expands.
A noticeable, remarkable taste when the cigar is first lit, which is very complex and smooth with flavors of mild honey and light cocoa. Moderate draw with medium weight smoke, there is a purity of flavor expressed through its clean character that keeps you coming back for more. The balance of sweet tones is accentuated with earthy flavors like leather and wheat, with full lingering tobacco flavors.
