Since 2018 Maya Selva Cigars has released limited editions that celebrate Chinese New Year. These special blends are a tribute to the hand-crafted cigar tradition. The tobacco in a toro-sized cigar – AÑO DEL TIGRE – is handpicked in the renowned valley of Jamastrán in Honduras. This blend provides the smoker with very pleasant earthy aromas with nutty and roasted coffee notes. It´s a creamy smoke. Medium strength.
The line’s design combines traditional Chinese patterns with Mayan hieroglyphics. The fauna of the ancient Maya, similar to the Chinese, have proven to play a significant part of their spiritual beliefs, symbolism and iconography. The Mayas believe we are all born with a “NAHAUL” or animal spirit that guides through life.
