TE-AMO REVOLUTION ROBUSTO OVALADO
Cigars have been sold under the Te-Amo name since 1963, and for the lion's share of that history Mexican law prohibited them from being made with anything other than tobaccos from that country. Changing times finally allowed the Turrent family to seek out new tobacco leaves and explore new flavors. This Ovalado, which incorporates a bit of Nicaraguan tobacco into a blend that relies heavily on the leaves grown by the Turrents on their farms in Mexico's lush San Andrés Valley, is quite simply the best Te-Amo we have ever smoked—and it's the least expensive cigar on the entire list. Under the silky wrapper is a rich smoke with a core of leather, coffee and a spicy finish. This is the first Te-Amo to make our Top 25.
