La Barba Purple, the second release by Tony Bellatto and Craig Rossi, features an HVA Ecuadorian Habano wrapper with Dominican binders. The fillers are an interesting mix of rare Carbonell and HVA Habano.
A sweet blend with a medium body profile pushing the bottom of medium-full. Rich corojo sweetness with a touch of spice is backed up by the Carbonell tobacco. This unique and intricate blend provides mollases, dark fruit, graham cracker, and a cedar and earth undertone for this complex blend of tobaccos.
This blend was perfected with assistance from Robert Caldwell of Caldwell Cigar Co. and Henderson Ventura (son of William Ventura) and is being manufactured at Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic.
