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

I had a very nice time with this Pichardo Reserva Familiar Habano Toro by A.C.E. Prime Cigars today… only the smoke texture was drier than I remember normally experiencing.

Oh well, another reason to smoke another of these Ace Prime Cigars before too long.

Until next time…

 A.C.E. Prime Cigars, ACE Prime Cigars,  Habano, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan Habano, Pichardo Reserva Familia Habano, Pichardo Habano, Toro I’m getting reacquainted with this Pichardo Reserva Familiar Habano in Toro by A.C.E. Prime Cigars today. These have been so scarce in my TupperDor, that I’ve only been able to smoke ONE per year! … After today, I think I need to do something about that!

Through a perfect draw, the construction speaks to me of beautiful… earthy cocoa, cedar, and leather tobacco flavors with a pretty zingy retrohale of pepper spices.
 
At the halfway point, not many transitions that I could detect, just more of the same creamy chewy smoke delivering slightly sweet tobacco flavors of the aforementioned, and I’m loving it!

 I’m about to declare this Pichardo Reserva Familiar Habano by A.C.E. Prime Cigars Box-Worthy.

A.C.E. Prime Cigars, Habano, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan Habano, Pichardo Reserva Familia, Toro I just smoked my last Pichardo Reserva Familiar Habano in Toro by A.C.E. Prime Cigars… Mmmm Good!

I’ll be heading over to The Stash Smoke Shop in Milwaukie, Oregon to purchase some more of these beautiful cigars.

These are leaning toward the “spendy” side of the wallet, but they are worth it every once in a while… I have not seen these in abundance online for purchase.

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
