Tasting Note

To understand the Aging Room Small Batch M356ii Mezzo, one must first look at the company's concept. Boutique Blends Cigars does not use the term "small batch" lightly. When brand owner Rafael Nodal finds a particular batch of tobacco, he creates only a finite amount of cigars. After the tobacco is finished, it's finished. No tobacco substitutions will be made over time to sustain the brand, no matter what the demand. Nor does he change the blend in hopes that no one will notice. The M356 was one of his first Small Batch releases, but the tobacco ran out, so Nodal created a similar blend called M356ii. This way, consumers know they're smoking something slightly different without being mislead. The Small Batch M356ii is a beautiful extension of the first blend, and the Mezzo scored 93 points for its savory, spicy qualities.
