BACKGROUND: James “Raz” Agopian and his partners announced the launch of Sinistro Cigars in early 2015 and started with three lines: Mr. Red (Maduro), Mr. White (HVA) and Mr. Black (Nicaragua). After 2-years of researching, sourcing the proper tobacco and blending, he finally created three cigars worthy of the Sinistro insignia.
Each hand rolled cigar is crafted by some of the most gifted cigar rollers in one of the world’s most historic cigar factories in the Dominican Republic: La Aurora. Each blend comes in 4 sizes: Robusto, Toro, Belicoso, and Presidente.
This week’s featured stogie is the 6.25-inch by 52 ring gauge Mr. Red, Torpedo.
FEATURED LIBATION: Nitro Mile Stout
Left Hand Brewing Company was established in 1993 and is located in Longmont, Colorado. Today’s craft brew the Nitro Milk Stout is just one of the four nitrogen-infused beers in the Left Hand portfolio of beers.
