La Hermandad by Primer Mundo

Primer Mundo teamed up with Abe Flores at PDR to come up with the La Hermandad Cigar. La Hermandad, translated, means “The Brotherhood” and for me instantly makes me think of “Man on Fire”, but that is neither here nor there.

The Building Blocks for this cigar feature a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper and Nicaraguan Binder and Filler. It is available in the following sizes

Caballito-24ct – 50×5”
Embajador-24ct – 52×5”
Consejero- 24ct – 60×6”

Sean Williams is a cool dude. I had the chance to talk to him a few times at Uptown’s Smoke Shop and each time I’m taken back by how down to earth Sean is. The guy is really an open book. He’s also a fellow Saints fan and it doesn’t hurt that he is the maker of some great cigars. Typical with products made by PDR, the La Hermandad is a well constructed cigar and even on initial draws packs some really great flavors. For my first roll with the La Hermandad I went with the Caballito size. Having never read a review on the cigar, I was thinking I would be hit with some mild and mellow flavors, but I can honestly tell you I believe the La Hermandad to be the best product Sean puts out right now. The balance with the wrapper made for a very smooth, slow burning and flavorful smoke. At the price range of about $8, it puts it easily within range for someone to enjoy on a regular basis. Even though the Caballitto is a robusto, this cigar held on for an hour and a half. While the flavors did pick up in the final third, the flavors remained consistent for the majority of the cigar, which in this case was not a bad thing and far from boring.

The Pros- Sean knocked one out of the park with this one. I have tried everything he has made that is available at the shops in the Nashville area and certain ones just didn’t fit my normal profile. However this one simply hit on all cylinders for me.

The Negative- I wish it had a band on it. I’ve had the great fortune to be handed some great cigars as pre releases or even grabbed a few sticks from other companies that did not have bands on them. Unless I actually toss something on the cigar to remind me what it is, I will honestly forget. That’s happened more than once for me.

Bottom Line: For the price point it’s an extremely “stand alone” cigar. Grab it if you see it
