Pichardo Reserva Familiar Habano Toro by A.C.E. Prime Cigars

A.C.E. Prime Cigars, Habano, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan Habano, Pichardo Reserva Familia, ToroFirst-time today with this new cigar from the newly formed A.C.E. (A Cuban Experience) Prime Cigar Company

A.C.E. Prime is a cigar distribution company formed by the partnership of NBA champion Tiago Splitter, Luciano Meirelles, cigar aficionado Billy McCaffrey, and Luis “Luisíto” Carbonell (aka The Cuban Legend). (Cigar Dojo)

The A.C.E. Prime Pichardo Reserva Familiar Habano is a gorgeous looking cigar with its oily smooth wrapper.

Once lit, volumes of smoke pour over me with familiar coffee tobacco flavors along with a mild retrohale that compliments the “smooth vibe” of this cigar

At the second third the retrohale ramps up with a tad more spice while some cocoa flavors are trying to come through. The draw is so seductive, I’m eager to puff on this… maybe too much. I’m diggin’ this cigar.

At the halfway point, this cigar is still pouring out a nice bit of smoke with every light puff. I think I may have read somewhere that this cigar has some Drew Estate manufacturing behind it. I’ll have to check that out.

I’m at the last third and the smoke production makes me happy. Plenty of smooth easy smoke to enjoy.

I’ll be hunting more of these and I’m now curious about how the other Pichardo cigars stack up to this beauty
