CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways 2015 Day 5: Tortuga Tuesday!

It’s day five, and it’s Tuesday, so we’re just going to go ahead and call this Tortuga Tuesday!  Frequent readers will know that I have a deep affection for the Tortuga brand, and have since it’s inception. Victor Vitale goes to great lengths to produce the best cigars, and today we have an excellent representation of that quality. Today’s spectacular present is 20 of the Tortuga 215 Reserva Tributo, a box pressed, 6″ x 56 super premium cigar made in Honduras.  These are a Nicarguan puro, and are complex, refined and sublime. These are packaged in five-packs, not boxed (saving me shipping costs!), I can probably come up with a box if you really want one, but the box count is 27, so you’d just feel shorted :-).  It’s better this way, trust me!  Many thanks to Victor Vitale for providing these terrific smokes!

Monday’s winner of the terrific MBombay Cigars sampler is Jay Rabinowitz! Please send your address so I can pack this up and send it out to you.  Thanks again to Mel and Ron at Bombay Tobak for sponsoring yesterday’s contest! Someone asked in yesterday’s comments how you tell each line apart as they all have the same bands. I’ve asked this question myself which led to the line being marked on the back of the cello in marker, which is the case with these samples (as shown in the bottom picture).  I’m sure it’s something Mel and his team are looking at, bands are expensive, but they do serve the purpose of identification. The bands and presentation are quite beautiful!

    I have heard of Tortuga, but have never tried them, not available in my area, sounds like something worth trying.
