  • Majestic: 2018 No. 1 Cigar of the Year – Cigar Aficionado rated 96

Taste – Medium Full-Flavored

Encore, a cigar celebrated as Ernesto’s greatest achievement in cigar craftsmanship. This exquisite cigar tantalizes the smoker’s palate with its complex flavor profile and exceptional quality.

From the first draw, the Encore cigar delivers an invigorating burst of zesty and spicy flavors, featuring a prominent peppery kick and refreshing citrus zest. As you continue to smoke, rich, woody notes emerge, providing a deep, earthy foundation reminiscent of aged cedar and oak. These robust woody flavors harmonize beautifully with the initial zestiness, creating a balanced and intricate taste experience.

The true allure of the Encore cigar lies in its luxurious, creamy finish. Each puff leaves a lasting impression with a smooth, velvety texture that delights the senses. The rich aromatic profile envelops you in a cloud of satisfying, aromatic smoke, making every moment with the Encore an indulgent journey.
