Episode 314: Chinnock Cellars Limited Edition Terroir


DESCRIPTION: Brian Chinnock of Chinnock Cellars Cigars says that his newest blend, appropriately called “Terroir,” incorporates tobacco leaves from several different regions to create a balance of the best qualities of each region.

For the filler blend, Chinnock uses Seco leaf from the Dominican Republic and combines it with Viso leaf from Nicaragua. A double Volado leaf binder from Nicaragua is used for its combustion qualities and the cigar is then capped with a Sun Grown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper.

All Chinnock cigars have been blended specifically to go with the luscious Chinnock Cellars Napa wines and the cigars are boxed in a very special “Barrel” box, which resembles a wine barrel.

This week’s featured cigar is the Chinnock Cellars Limited Edition Terroir Torpedo.

DOC’S CIGAR POSTSCRIPT: Tatuaje La Verite 2008 Churchill
This week’s postscript review is on the La Verite 2008 from Pete Johnson and Tatuaje. I first featured this cigar in Episode 253 of the Stogie Fresh 5 podcast on Saturday, January 1, 2011. These cigars have now been aging in my humidor for 2 years, 10.4 months and I pulled out a couple of samples this past week for a revisit.
