Premium cigar lovers can celebrate St. Patrick's Day all through March, thanks to a special limited-time sales promotion by Tabacos de la Cordillera. Quoting Director John Vogel, "To stimulate sales in our newly-introduced Cumbres de Puriscal Green line, we are offering buyers a 10% discount on all 9 of its popular shapes bought through our factory-direct Web site, www.tabacordillera.com.Tabacos de la Cordillera Celebrates St. Patrick's Day

"We offer Cumbres de Puriscal, our handmade, 100% long-filler flagship brand, in three wrapper/blends... Green, Gold, and Silver. Sales figures indicate customers have a mistaken perception that the Gold and silver are superior to the Green, as they far outsell it. In fact, all three lines are of equal price and quality. They all use extra-select grades of wrapper, filler and binder leaf. The Green's manufacturing criteria, tobacco aging, quality control, and leaf processing standards are identical to the other two Cumbres lines. It simply has its own distinctive flavor profile.

"Both the Cumbres de Puriscal Green and Gold lines are mild-to-medium bodied, compared to the Silver's medium-to-full body. The Green's complex and balanced blend has earthy and sweet overtones. It has a silky-smooth natural-color Habano-derived Connecticut shade wrapper and a filler and binder of proprietary Habano tobaccos, grown on the company-owned 65-acre farm and factory near the Costa Rican mountain town of Puriscal.

Vogel, a tobacco geneticist and agricultural researcher for 40 years, grows all the company's tobacco naturally, from an exclusive bank of 47 pre-Embargo Cuban seed strains, which he acquired during his career. They provide a virtually endless diversity of tobacco variations, creating strains available nowhere else worldwide. The company launched its Internet sales site just last October, and is creating a stir with its claim to offer tobaccos that hearken back 50 years to Cuba's Golden Age of cigars.

Prices on the Cumbres de Puriscal Green, with the discount, range from $2.95 to $5.30. The discount applies to purchases of 5-cigar samplers, bundles, and cedar boxes. All are currently available on the company's Web site for this limited offer. www.tabacordillera.com
