There was a time where CABINET SELECTIONS was the highlight of the British cigar market. In the beginning of the 20th century, with the ascension to the throne of Edward VII, an avid cigar enthusiast, cigar smoking was raised to new heights of fashion. Historians considered this the golden aged of premium cigars and tobacco in general. During this time in the United Kingdom, certain vitolas became extremely fashionable, doble figurados and piramides, among other new small ring gauge size cigars were the daily choice of the Englishmen.
Due to a high demand for premium cigars, Cuban manufacturers, together with their British importers, conspired to offer larger packs of their brands. Masters in the art of Cuban colonial style cabinet making were commissioned to craft ornate humidors from pure Spanish cedar to house the cigars, needless to say anyone who could afford such an item would insist on only the highest quality for its contents. Thus it became common practice for only the best rollers from each factory, using the finest selection of tobaccos, to be permitted to roll the cigars for cabinets, hence “Cabinet Selection”.
Today, Isaias Santana Diaz, best known for his traditional style, which is reflected in all his D’Crossier Cigars Brands portfolio, is adding his first Cabinet Selection to the Flor de D’Crossier Series.
The cigars are displayed in slide lid cedar boxes to enhance the aromas of the cigars, packaged in cabinets of 20. In addition to his most recent innovation, the perforated cellophanes, which allows the cigars more breathability, and absorption of the woody essence in which the brands are to be considered and known for, as its signature flavor profile.
The blend consists of an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and a Dominican binder, holding the bunch—fillers from Nicaragua and Costa Rica, making this luxurious smoke a medium to full body flavor, providing a complex and sophisticated creamy smoke, making this line a beacon among the D’Crossier brands. The new Cabinet Selection No.1 carries three sizes ranging from $11.90 to 12.99 per cigar. These sizes are Belicoso 54 x 6”, Tainos 54 x 6.1/2”, and a Cañonazo 52 x 5.7/8”.
