Martinez Cigars Pasión Piramides

A couple of years ago I visited Martinez Cigars at 29th and 7th in Manhattan, and I picked up a selection of robustos, among them
the Pasión, which I enjoyed.  The factory is a little store front near Penn Station, where they have three rollers producing all of their cigars. Two of them work in a pair, with one bunching and one applying wrappers, and the other guy spends the majority of his time rolling small cigars that they sell a ton of to mostly walk it customers. They have a basement aging room, where their cigars age for at least six months. I remember this from my visit, so if things have changed in the last year and a half since my visit, I apologize. If you find yourself in Manhattan,check this place out.


Martinez_Pasión_PiramidesA few weeks ago, the folks at Martinez sent me a little three cigar box of their Pasión in the Piramides size, a 6″ x 52 figurado. The Pasión line is wrapped in a Nicaraguan wrapper with fillers from Nicaragua and Honduras. These are very nice cigars, they have a quality that reminds me of a Cuban cigar, both in the way they are rolled and the basic flavor. They are earthy with a hint of sweetness, but mostly a savory flavor. Considering these are manufactured in one of the most expensive cities in the USA, these are reasonably priced in the $10 range, and are well worth a try.


Many thanks to Chris at Martinez Cigars for sharing these cigars with me.  That’s all for today, until the next time,

    I used to go to a small cigar store in St. Augustine where there was an old man who ran a “one-man” operation. He purchased tobacco and he sold cigars. He also did every thing in between. That place was so much fun to go to. I sat and chatted with him while he bunched and rolled cigars in the front window of his store.
