Serino Cigar Co.
ELENOR ROSE

Elenor Rose is the first release from Serino Cigar Co. newest division, called Studio Serino. This is an experimental branch of the company that was created to utilize unique tobaccos, interesting sizes, and inventive packaging separate from their regular cigar lines. 

"Studio Serino was established on the core belief that art is the hammer with which we forge our own reality," said vice president Carson Serino. "Cigar making is a big part of our family’s story and we wanted a place where we could push the limits of our craft. The studio is a place where myself, my father and other collaborators have a space to be creative and passionate in the art of cigar making."

Carson named Elenor Rose as a tribute to the Educadorian Rosada wrapper that covers this cigar, along with the love for music (and The Beatles) Carson and his father share. 

"Music carries a special significance within our family," said Carson. He also believes the components of good music share that of a good cigar. "There are characteristics in a cigar that I believe every well-rounded blend should consist of. They are: balance, complexity, and vibrancy. Balance and complexity go hand in hand. I believe a cigar should have a strong core group of flavors yet have a clean finish. Next is vibrancy. Does the blend grab your attention and keep it? Does it deliver a memorable experience from beginning to end? A good cigar should do both."

Reviews + Notes

The Styled Stogie

The body has a pleasant floral aroma. Reminiscent of honeysuckle. A little oak and peanuts on the cold draw. Right away, the palate texture is nice and full. Definitely creamy. As it opens up a bit from the tapered foot, soft wood comes though with the cream. The florals from the body have arrived as well. Floral, oak, and cream all change intensities throughout this first third. As I get into the second third there’s a hint of dough. Like bread or croissant dough. Very nice. On the finish with that I get some baker’s spice. More of cinnamon, really. The wood is still there and seems to be present as oak. That cinnamon and bakers spice faded fairly quick. The floral is still there on the finish and it now has more of a nice pour over coffee note. I’m in the final third now and the palate texture has changed and now reminds me of caramel. Nice and smooth. It has a sweet cane sugar texture with that. Different kinds of sugars is what I’m getting. Interesting banana note coming through and just after that vanilla ice cream. What a great final third. I would love to pair this with an afternoon bananas foster with a nice pour over on the side. This one gets a solid 91 for me. Very enjoyable
