A PREQUEL TO THE AMAZON BASIN AND 4TH IN THE SERIES
The Amzon Trilogy has a prequel. First, there was Amazon Basin, a remarkable and unique cigar that was introduced in 2014. Amazon Basin was followed by Fuma Em Corda and then Zocalo. Now comes the Orellana, its namesake taken from the original name of the Amazon River, when it was first discovered by Francisco de Orellana.
The Orellana is considered a prequel to the Amazon Basin since its Cubra wrapper has been aging since well before Amazon Basin ever hit the scene. The Cubra leaf, dark and small in size, produces a rich, spicy and complex taste and aroma. Saved for special use, this Cubra wrapper is being used around the tobaccos that create the Amazon Series.
Notes of toasty nuts, sweet spices, almonds, and hints of molasses make this medium to full-bodied cigar one that you will want to add to your Amazon collection.
