An infused cigar is one whose leaves
are treated before production in order to add flavor to the
natural taste of tobacco. Although the process of creating premium-infused cigars is not very complex, it is quite ingenious and requires a good deal of
patience and time to get good results. The tobacco leaves are hung in the
curing rooms while they are sprinkled with different types of essences such as
coffee, cognac, fruits or herbs until they are gently moistened and acquire
the flavor of the chosen ingredient.
Adding taste by infusion requires a
careful balance whereby additional flavor is delicately introduced while
maintaining the natural flavor of the tobacco. The new aroma should enhance the
original flavor of the cigar without overpowering it. How this mixing and
infusing process is successfully carried out to achieve the perfect result is a
well-kept secret of the few premium cigar makers that make infused cigars.
Drew Estate is one of the leading
companies in this industry, something like the kings of infused cigars, due to
the advanced and secretive infusion processes they use. Its owners, two New
Yorkers living in Nicaragua, built the largest tobacco factory in that country,
and one of the five largest premium cigar factories in the world. In their
quest to push the boundaries of the notion of the traditional cigar by creating
exotic tobacco blends, they especially thought of those smokers who like to
feel the taste and aroma of coffee with their morning cigars.
For this reason, they made the jewel
in the crown and named it Isla del Sol, a line of cigars made with a rare blend
of perfectly aged Nicaraguan tobaccos infused with Sumatran Mandheling Bean
Coffee, to create a sweet and aromatic smoke experience.
Although many cigar smokers avoid
infused cigars, they are missing out on a novel experience that delivers great
flavor at an unbeatable price. Isla del Sol cigars are true jewels of a medium-smooth body with an initial flavor that mixes earthy tobacco and sweet
black coffee, softened with cocoa bark, followed by soft floral notes, roasted
almonds, and spicy Nicaraguan pepper. A smooth, creamy, and highly
aromatic smoking experience that makes for the perfect morning smoke.

that delicious morning cigar or to enjoy the end of the day, at a very
