Tis the season for short flavorful smokes. The La Riqueza No. 5 at 42 ring gauge by 4 and 3/8 inches, fits this profile suitably. It utilizes a naturally dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, along with Nicaraguan binder and filler to deliver rich earthy flavors of dark coffee, vanilla, toasted cedar, leather and dry roasted nuts. The ash is bright white and burns with a sharp even burn line. Don't let it's rustic good looks fool you, it's a premium cigar with a premium price of $163.15 for a box of 25. Silo cigars offers a five size sampler pack for $43.50 if you want to take it out for a test drive first.
