Guayacan is one of the newer cigars to come to the market this year.  Guayacan premiered at this years IPCPR show in Orlando.  The company is owned by Noel Rojas, originally from Cuba, who fled to the United States after being imprisoned in Cuba for making cigars.  Most recently, they have released that they have signed a distribution agreement with Emilio Cigars.

The cigar that I smoked was a very attractive looking stick with a nice medium colored wrapper.  I did view some of the other cigars in the box, as well as some additional sizes, and can say they all are consistently colored across the board.  The band of this cigar is bright, and also very attractive.

The first thing I noticed when I lit this cigar was that I liked it.  This cigar features a very sweet tobacco with light earthy, woody, and oak flavors.  Approximately mid way through this cigar I started to pick up on some spice and pepper flavorings as well.

The burn of this cigar overall was fairly good.  I did have to touch up the cigar twice, but I am going to guess that was because this shipment had just arrived at Uptowns today, and most likely is still very fresh.  I think a good month in the humidor will show great things for the burn of this cigar.  The ash was very firm, only falling when ashed.  Smoke was nice and white.

Would I buy it again?  Yes.  Not only because they are being distributed by my friends at Emilio, but also because it is a great cigar.  And, did you see the price?  A robusto in the five-dollar range with this much complexity and flavor is always a solid choice for me.  Go out and try one, then go pick up a box and enjoy some good smokes!
