We are very excited for our first time partnering with Nimmer Ahmad of Valacari cigars and blind tasting the Lumineer, a cigar that will not even debut until January (hence the no band)! While we are the first to enjoy this wonderful smoke, it won't be the last cigar we blind taste from Valacari. Founded in only 2016, the company has already made a name for themselves for being extremely experimental in their blending process and for producing many cigars in small batches.
"Our goal was to push cigar crafting into new boundaries to create unique cigars to the market," said Ahmad. "We started our journey by spending years in development of every aspect of our cigars. We wanted to take a more scientific and experimental approach to crafting cigars while maintaining some of the old traditions."
