I loved everything about the Leaf by Oscar (maduro). First of all, unwrapping the tobacco leaf encasing the cigar is an excellent way to present a cigar, especially this one. Similar to lifting a cigar out of a cedar coffin, but better. The leaf performs the job of connecting this cigar to its very beginning. Before it was put into a box, before it was rolled, before it was cured, it was a leaf on a tobacco plant, swaying in the breeze in Nicaragua or Honduras (or even Ecuador), hand selected for this cigar to be enjoyed at this specific time…After I stopped obsessing over the tobacco leaf I cut, lit, and smoked my first Leaf by Oscar. It was perfection from start to finish. One I’ll be sure to enjoy again! Selected at @tobaccocompany
