Famous Smoke Shop announces new Conuco cigars made by Rocky Patel
Famous Smoke Shop has just announced the release of Conuco, a new exclusive boutique cigar blended and manufactured in concert with Rocky Patel, one of the leading personalities in the world of premium cigars.
The cigars are handmade under Rocky Patel's direction in Danli, Honduras. The blend comprises carefully-aged Honduran and Costa Rican Ligero, Nicaraguan Viso, and Panamanian Seco longfiller tobaccos bound in a Nicaraguan Seco leaf and wrapped in a milk chocolate-hued, Honduran Habano wrapper.
"Our goal, as always, is to bring value into an inflated boutique marketplace to let the premium cigar smoker know that taste and complexity doesn't need to cost eight bucks a cigar," said Famous Smoke Shop president, Arthur Zaretsky.
Pronounced "koh'-noo'-koh," Conuco is derived from an old Cuban word that refers to a small plot of land an estate owner would grant deserving workers to cultivate their own tobacco crops for profit.
According to Gary Korb, chief copywriter and one of Famous Smoke Shop's resident cigar authorities, "Conuco is a medium to full-bodied cigar with a sweet and complex character." He added that "the cigar offers plenty of earthy, caramelized flavors with hints of dark roasted coffee and cocoa in the aroma."
The cigars are presented in boxes of 20, ranging from $71.99 for the 5" x 44 Petite Corona, $95.99 for the 6" x 60 "Sixty". 5-packs of each size are also being offered. Those interested in more information may visit the Conuco cigars page on the Famous Smoke Shop website, or call 1-800-564-2486.
"Someone once said, 'an educated consumer is our best client,'" said Mr. Zaretsky. "Service, value, and knowledge is what we bring to our customers, and we are always grateful for that opportunity."
