House of Horvath’s extensive cigar catalogue boasts some of the most historical and renowned brands that are offered in the Canadian market. With that said, we narrowed down some of the best choices that will be on display at the golf event at discounted prices!
1. E.P. Carrillo New Wave Briliante
This sophisticated blend of tobaccos incorporates a heavily fermented Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over Cuban-seed Nicaraguan and Dominican long fillers. The cigar offers pleasant medium bodied notes of almonds, spice along with an element of creaminess. Ernesto’s extensive cigar making experience has long been credited for unique, balanced and stand-out tobacco blends.
2. La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Belicoso
The highly rated #2 Cigar of the Year offers a different dynamic than the previously mentioned Connecticut wrapped cigar. This one boasts a Mexican San Andres wrapper, produced at the My Father factory, another legendary cigar making family that has been brought to the Canadian market courtesy of House of Horvath. In this blend you can expect medium-full complex flavours of sweetness and spices. Jaime Garcia and his father, Don Pepin Garcia, constantly look to break new grounds in the cigar industry, and Mi Amor Belicoso is one of the finest blends released.
3. House of Horvath 6x60 Gordo
Not every golfing cigar has to exceed $10. This HofH blend is manufactured at the Plasencia factory under the supervision of Nestor Plasencia. Construction and draw on the HofH blends have stood the test of time for years. An economically priced daily smoke that golfers can appreciate. The brand portfolio includes mild and medium-full bodied profiles and is offered in Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican tobacco blends.
4. Oliva Serie G
Yet another classic cigar blend that can be enjoyed by many enthusiasts. The distinctive feature behind this blend is that Oliva incorporates an authentic Cameroon wrapper - widely considered to be the most expensive wrapper of all. It is then draped over Nicaraguan long fillers to produce a complex yet refined profile of nuts, cedar, oak and spice. A true masterpiece of a blend that will be highlighted at the golf event.
