While Vicino oddly enough has several translations, the two that stuck out to me were ‘Porch’ and ‘Neighbor’.
When we were discussing this blend concept with Hostos, we requested that several boxes be checked.
- Can it hold up to higher proof bourbon, check.
- Will you pick up on some traditional holiday flavors, check.
- Most importantly, can you give one (or a fiver) to a neighbor and be completely comfortable that they can smoke it and enjoy a full flavor yet not full-strength cigar, check.
