BACKGROUND: The Master Collection Three began shipping nationwide in February 2015. The blend is comprised of tobaccos from three different countries; a Habano wrapper from Ecuador, a binder from the Dominican Republic and filler tobaccos from two growing regions in Nicaragua. As with all Master Collection blends, the experience is designed for those with a more refined palate.
The new Master Collection Three is packaged in white, piano finish boxes and contain either 20 or 50 cigars depending on the format. This edition is available in five formats and retails from $8.00 to $12.00 per cigar.
This week’s featured cigar is the 7-inch by 38 ring gauge Master Collection Three Mutante.
FEATURED LIBATION: Aberlour A’Bunadh Single Malt Scotch
Aberlour A’bunadh is a cask strength whisky that has achieved cult status among whisky connoisseurs.
Abundah is made using exclusively oak casks that have previously aged Sherry, but are first fill for Scotch. That is, though they have been used to age Sherry, this is the first time they’ve been used to age Scotch. After aging in these casks, the finished scotch is transferred straight to the bottle at Cask Strength, which is just a hair under 61%ABV or 122-proof.
