Tabacos de la Cordillera™ has introduced its new Purisco™ Variety Samplers, with 3 each of its 3 Purisco premium cigars. This is also the debut of their Purisco Negro cigar, in an oscuro wrapper. The cellophane-wrapped mini-bundles of 9 cigars are available in 2 of the most popular shapes...Robusto (5"x50) and Corona (6-1/4" x 44). The Samplers join the recently-released Cumbres de Puriscal™ Variety Samplers, also 9-cigar mini-bundles of 3 each Cumbres Gold, Silver, and Emerald cigars.

Tabacos de la Cordillera is the world's only cigar maker growing tobacco from genetically pure pre-Castro "ancestral" seeds that date as far back as 1945, to Cuba's Golden Age of Cigars. Company director John Vogel, a graduate agronomist and 40-year genetic researcher in the premium cigar industry, grows all the tobacco naturally on Tabacos de la Cordillera's 65-acre farm near the Costa Rican mountain town of Santa Marta de Puriscal.

Vogel states, "Like Cumbres Samplers, these should prove popular, because smokers can sample all 3 blends of each line and save 40% off the cost of buying three 5-pack samplers of each." Full bodied Purisco Negro has an extra-oily, coffee-black oscuro wrapper that results from extra fermentation. The existing medium-bodied Rojo has a natural wrapper, and the medium-full bodied Azul has a maduro wrapper. 

"We’ve startled the world of premium cigars...and created some sharp controversy...with our claim that our cigars are as 'Cuban' as Castro's," states Vogel. "That doesn’t mean they taste like today's Cuban cigars. Our pre-Embargo seed bank is the bridge that transports the taste and bouquet of the classic Havanas of old into today's cigars." Vogel should know...he and his professional taster have smoked Havanas since the early 1960s, before many of today's smokers were born.

All 3 Purisco lines are available in 5 of the most popular shapes. Manufacturer's suggested retail pricing for the Purisco Variety Samplers in both Robusto and Corona is $36.00. They, and all other Tabacos de la Cordillera cigars, are available on the company's Web site, www.tabacordillera.com.

New Purisco Variety Samplers combine 3 each Rojo, Azul, and new Negro (oscuro) premium cigars; save 40% off the cost of 5-pack samplers.
