Pinar Del Rio1878 Event


Join us THIS Thursday, August 5 from 5:00 - 9:00
as we welcome Bob Stevens of Pinar Del Rio Cigars to Duke Bazzel for a Pinar Del Rio 1878 event!
This will be Bob's last event in the area, so come in and wish him well as he moves to Virgina.
Don't feel bad if you haven't heard of Pinar Del Rio Cigars, a small independent boutique factory in the Dominican Republic. Pinar Del Rio Cigars, in their fifth year of independent operation, believes in turning out limited quantities of super-high quality product and selling only to select retailers, hence why you may have overlooked their phenomenal cigars. But that's about to change! PDR 1878 Cubano Especial is a medium bodied smoke blended from small-batch Nicaraguan and Dominican long fillers, a Nicaraguan binder, and your choice of a Connecticut or Maduro wrapper. Available in five sizes and packaged in 20 count boxes, PDR 1878 Cubano Especial has a taste that is uniquely its own. PDR 1878 Cubano Especial has quickly become one of our hottest cigars and we want to make sure you've had a chance to try them!

Event Specials:
  • Buy 3, Get 1 FREE!
  • Buy 7, Get 2 FREE!
  • Buy a Box, Get 5 FREE!

Free La Aurora 107Aurora Cigar @ Dukes on April 30th

LA AURORA 107AURORA CELEBRATES 107 YEARS
La Aurora has been in business for more than a century-107 years to be exact-and the company is commemorating the milestone with the new Aurora 107 cigar. "We had defined our goal early on," said La Aurora vice president Guillermo León in a release, "and that was to bring the smokers a medium-bodied, richly flavored smoke with a fair amount of spice at a very attractive price. As for the name, it was decided to keep it simple, meaningful and easy to remember, hence La Aurora's 107th year."

The cigar comes in three sizes: Robusto (4 1/2 inches by 50 ring), Toro (5 1/2 by 54) and Belicoso (6 1/4 by 52). They are packaged in boxes of 21 and carry suggested retail prices ranging from $6 to $8 each. The blend is composed of an Ecuadoran sun-grown wrapper, Dominican binder and filler from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
Stop in Friday, April 30 for the official debut of La Aurora 107. Buy any cigar, of any brand, and you'll get ONE FREE La Aurora 107 Robusto!

Second Growth Has Arrived!

Just as a master winemaker chooses only choice grapes from the harvest for blending into the finest Bourdeaux wines from France, master tobacco blenders at the world renowned Tabadom cigar factory in the Dominican Republice hand select only the finest leaves from their finishing cellars before passing their mix to rollers who artfully assemble Second Growth leaf by leaf ensuring each cigar delivers optimal flavor and combustion.



When paired with aforementioned Bourdeaux blends and American meritage wines, Second Growth provides a perfectly synchronized flavor experience. While the wind delivers a mouth presence that originates at the back of the tongue majestically working its way forward through the palate, the rich fruit of the wine prepares the palate for the comples interplay of spice, leather, and chocolate notes from this exceptional cigar. At 54 x 7 and 7/8ths inches long Second Growth delivers for hours.

Each Second Growth cigar box is hand furnished and numbered by Irish master craftsman James Row in Portsmouth, New Hampshire from wine barrels used during the maturation of a renowned Second Growth Chateau from the historic, awar-winning Saint Julien appellation of Bordeaux. The concentrated fruit aromas emanating from the barrel staves envelope each cigar imparting a timeless elegance from the fine wine mingled with the spice, leather and chocolate notes in the rare aged tobacco create a taste synthesis befitting the most discerning connoisseur.

Only 1000 boxes were produced and only 300 will be available in the US. We got some, not a ton, but we were lucky to have received what we did and want to share them with you before the disappear. Second Growth cigars are turly one-of-a-kind.
