The La Escepción Selectos Finos Cigar (Ex. Italia 2011) is an exceptional Regional Edition cigar, possibly one of the most sought after by cigar collectors worldwide.
The brand itself, La Escepción, was resurrected from oblivion by the Italian Cuban Cigar Importer Diadema s.p.a. as part of their 2011 Regional Edition for Italy. Beautifully presented in a 25 count cigar box, only 2,000 individually-numbered boxes were made, making thes Selectos Finos an extremely rare find.
Measuring 166 mm in length by 38 ring gauge, these Panetelas are outstandingly elegant. Anachronistic in every possible way, they remind us of a time when cigars used to be thin and beautiful. Expect a medium-bodied smoke with wonderful aromas notes of nuts and dark chocolate.
These cigars are ready to be smoked now but can easily be aged for a few more years, to be enjoyed in due course. Smoking time, at an easy pace, is approximately one hour and a quarter.
