1502 Cigars- Proudly Nicaraguan!
The hot new 1502 cigar brand is produced by the Global Premium Cigar Company in Nicaragua with three impressive premium blends currently in the company portfolio. 1502 Cigars have quickly become one of the hottest new boutique cigar companies on the market today. Why you ask? Because using only the best binder and filler tobaccos paired with three pristine wrappers, it takes more than five years of stringent aging until you can toast and torch one of these fine cigars. Secondly, owner Enrique Sanchez has turned a long-time passion for smoking cigars into one of the most respected cigar brands in the industry. 1502 made its smashing debut at the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show in Orlando, Florida and Sanchez and his team of highly skilled blenders and rollers have continued to adhere to their mantra— ‘Proudly Nicaraguan’. The brand name 1502 comes from the year that Christopher Columbus discovered Nicaragua and the band was inspired by the official currency of the kingdom of Spain in that same year.
1502 Emerald cigars are uncharacteristically mellow for such a dynamic blend of Nicaraguan and Mexican tobaccos. The cigars subtle strength and easygoing smoothness comes from aging these fine leaves for five years in cedar cabinets before they are unveiled. A vintage Corojo wrapper from Nicaragua completes this fine recipe. lush notes of sweet spice, cocoa, cedar, and subtle hints of chocolate are delivered with an engaging mellow-bodied profile. A great introduction for new hobbyists, 1502 Emerald cigars also double is an iconic morning to mid-day smoke for the well-seasoned cigar connoisseur.
Moving up in strength a couple of notches, the medium-bodied 1502 Ruby cigars feature top-quality Jalapa and Estelí Nicaraguan binder and fillers paired with a reddish-hue Ecuadorian wrapper. This Cuban-style treat rewards the palate with delectable flavors of pepper, earth, coffee, cedar, and subtle hints of citrus. Nestled between the mellow Emerald and the stronger Black Gold, these box-pressed beauties from Senor Sanchez will appeal to premium cigar smokers of all experience levels.
Saving the strongest 1502 blend for last, Black Gold cigars are made with the full-bodied smoker in mind. Premium Nicaraguan tobaccos wrapped in a zesty San Andres Mexican wrapper will accommodate your deepest and darkest flavor cravings. A Maduro lover’s dream, Black Gold seduces the palate with a fragrant medley of espresso, wood, some citrus tones, and heathy dose of peppery zest.
