Welcome to Volume 4 of CigarClub Customs. This is the one I’ve been looking forward to releasing most since we launched Ocho back in February. A cigar that went through many iterations and started back in March of this year when I was in the Dominican Republic. This was a very HANDS ON blend - one I’m proud to put the Customs name on. 

Aperio is a word that comes to mind when I think about our newest partnership with a good friend of mine, Hostos Fernandez Quesada. Hostos opened a new factory in the DR called Tabacalera La Isla in late 2020. Finding him and his factory is one of the highlights of my cigar journey thus far - this cigar feels like the big reveal to who he is and the cigars he’s making. He welcomed me with open arms and invited me in to work on cigars and blend with him.  We played around with some pretty cool varietals of tobacco and ended up landing on a blend I absolutely fell in love with. You’ll notice the cigar info at the top is very, very specific - that’s a testament to the freedom and transparency I’m able to have at the La Isla Factory. 

You’ll see the reddish hue to the wrapper, the very noticeable closed foot and a size that I think has become my favorite (5.25 x 50). This cigar tastes Dominican. It’s balanced. It changes. It’s flawlessly constructed. 

It’s, La Isla. 

Uncover it for yourself and please let me know your thoughts. I’d love to hear from you (

PS: You’ll begin to see some pretty big names releasing cigars out of the La Isla Factory - so keep an eye out - you knew him before he blew up.
