BACKGROUND: At the heart of the Davidoff Escurio blend are two Brazilian varietals: Mata Fina and Cubra. The Cubra leaf is an original Cuban Criollo tobacco grown in Brazil, which adds a spicy pinch to the flavor, while the Mata Fina filler leaf is what gives the cigar its sweetness. The cigar is balanced with Dominican San Vicente, Dominican Olor and Dominican Piloto Cubano leaves wrapped in a dark Habano seed Ecuadorian wrapper. Thus, making this a 3-country, 6-varietal tobacco blend.
The Escurio comes in three sizes, and the one I’m featuring today is the 4.5 inch by 54 ring gauge Robusto.
FEATURED LIBATION: Hudson Baby Bourbon Whiskey
Hudson Whiskeys are the first legal pot-distilled whiskey to be produced in New York’s Hudson Valley. The Baby Bourbon Whiskey is made with 100% New York corn that is double distilled and aged in small American Oak casks.
Though the Baby Bourbon is what started the whiskey portfolio for Tuthilltown Spirits, they also have other great whiskies, including their classic Manhattan Rye, the Single Malt Whiskey, the Four Grain Bourbon, and their Corn Whiskey.
