Jammin' in Las Vegas
Two Cigar Aficionado editors. Two cigarmakers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The game: a smoke-off.
From the Print Edition:
Daniel Craig, November/December 2008

Traditionally it was just about the wrapper. But we wanted to do more with that. We wanted to make a blend for a maduro."
It was impossible to get to all the new smokes at the show, but some of the others that impressed me were the La Aurora Puro Vintage 2003, El Rey de los Habanos's MF line (MF is for My Father) and C.A.O. Lx2. There were many more. They all shared the idea of more flavor is better, without necessarily being strong. I wish we could have smoked them all at the cigar jam session at the Wynn. There just wasn't enough time. Maybe next year?
