The Leonel Rare Special Edition 2016 sets new standards in aroma and tobacco. Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos, matured more than once, acquired a phenomenal aromatic bouquet but mild to medium-bodied in strength.
An oily, Mocca brown Nicaraguan wrapper, cultivated from Cuban seeds, fermented and matured until it took on a Maduro brown colour rounds off the cigar. The result, a rich aroma and mild to medium-bodied in strength is unmistakeable.
The wrapper used for the Leonel Rare Special Edition 2016 is the most exclusive and expensive wrapper ever used in the manufactory where Leonel Cigars are made.
Leonel Rare Special Edition 2016 is available in Belicoso format. Length 12.7 cm with a ring gauge of 20 mm.
Originally it was decided to base the Leonel Rare Special Edition 2016 on the classic Leonel Rare blend. In the creation process with various prototypes the blend continually changed and a completely new cigar emerged to become the Special Edition 2016.
The Belicoso format of the Leonel Rare Special Edition develops a delicate aroma that accompanies the mild to medium-bodied cigar from the beginning right up to the last draw. The bouquet is soft and rich, characterized by roast aromas as well as hues of cedar and wood with a slightly fruity finish.
