Over the next few weeks we’ll be releasing videos from cigar manufacturers talking about their new products at IPCPR 2017.

Today, we’re featuring Tim Cavenagh, founder of Alpha Cigar Company, as he introduces the absinthe-infused cigars.

Cigars listed below are in order of appearance in video:

Alpha Absinthe Infused Maduro

Alpha Absinthe Infused MaduroDescription: San Andres maduro wrappers have entered a new golden age, and the Alpha Cigar Co. Absinthe Infused Maduro is a rare maduro cigar that stands above the rest. Rated a 92 by Cigar and Spirits magazine, it is the world’s highest rated infused cigar by any major publication.

Upholding Cuban traditions, the cigars are rolled in pairs, and bunched in the Cuban entubado style for optimal draw. Prior to rolling, a single leaf in each cigar is lightly infused with a premium French Absinthe. The 15 different herbs used in the production of this Absinthe lend diverse botanical subtleties to the cigar, especially on the retro hale.

Alpha Absinthe Infused Claro

Alpha Absinthe Infused Claro

Description: Hand-rolled in Tamboril, Dominican Republic with tobaccos aged for a minimum of 2 years, a subtle addition of premium, handcrafted chocolate absinthe liqueur is gently infused into the binder leaves. The San Andres Claro wrapper, resembling a Colorado Claro in color, lends a rich earthiness to the cigar, balancing the nuttiness and light chocolate notes of the binder and filler. The resulting blend is a complex symphony of flavors guaranteed to delight cigar smokers that prefer a medium-to-full bodied cigar.

Alpha Absinthe Infused Connecticut

Alpha Absinthe Infused Connecticut

Description: The Alpha Cigar Co. Absinthe Infused Connecticut is our debut blend. Displaying the classic creaminess of a properly grown and aged Connecticut wrapper, the cigar is balanced with notes of hay, and a light spiciness, with traces of pine and citrus rind.

Cuban seed Piloto Cubano leaves make up the filler of these mild-to-medium bodied cigars, with the native Olor Dominicano leaf making up the binder. Upholding Cuban traditions, the cigars are rolled in pairs, and bunched in the Cuban entubado style for optimal draw. Prior to rolling, a single leaf in each cigar is lightly infused with a premium French Absinthe. The 15 different herbs used in the production of this Absinthe lend diverse botanical subtleties to the cigar, especially on the retro hale.
