The New Dunhill Aged Cigars


It's a rebranding move for Connecticut-wrapped Dunhill Aged cigars recently which resulted in a new look and was launched into the market a few months ago.
Dunhill Aged cigars series was originally a Cuban brand was born in the Dominican Republic in 1989. This cigar series is owned by British American Tobacco International (British American Tobacco), the first from now on the manufacturing and distribution of the United Cigar Company is a subsidiary of Altria American companies. - International Tobacco Online -

I've managed to grab a box of the old packaging Dunhill Robustos before the manufacturing and distribution changed hands. 


I called them the Dunhill "Blue Label" and did a search online and was surprised that it's also casually known as the “blue label”. It has an updated look as well, sporting a modern band design instead of the old scripted logo. The "blue" made the cigars more outstanding and easily spotted. I think it's a good sign towards brand awareness.





I'm not sure which size does this one belong in the categorisation of Dunhill Aged cigars but the ring gauge is the size of a corona. If I'm not wrong, this should be their Diamantes (6.6" X 42). Every Dunhill Aged Dominican Diamantes Natural cigar is handmade from a special selection of Piloto Cubano and Olor tobaccos grown in the Dominican Republic's fertile Cibao Valley. After being wrapped in a Dominican binder, the cigars are encased in the finest quality USA-Connecticut shade-grown leaves. The final stage of blending includes aging for one year in cedar-lined rooms to produce a mellow, well-rounded, and fine cigar.



It was very kind of my friend to bring some for me to try. I had one during dinner at El Rincon and it was an enjoyable smoke. It's a light cigar, nothing like the powerful Cohibas that overwhelms the palate.  Beautiful construction, the burn was very good but rather fast as well. I get an even burn and consistent draw although the draw at first seemed to be quite tight. It makes a very nice during dinner smoke. The drawback is, I don't know the price.

Heh! Nice review, I've never had a Dunhill cigar, but I've had their blended whisky and some of them are surprisingly good.

At the sаme time, it's not hard to find a good massage school nowadays due to the demand in massage courses. It works on sore & tired muscles as a tool to prevent injuries. In all likelihood, you will also be seeing a physical (physio) therapist. What hair restoration physician experts are saying. This means they end up taking more last minute clients to make ends meet!!! Repeat the process on your other thigh..
