La Barba Ricochet Cru Shade follows a list of Cigar Yard favorites, as the OG Ricochet Oscuro and the Ricochet Mexi-Sol have been FAVORITE CIGARS over here.. This release is a bit different. A cigar constructed around the notion of long, relaxed draws that yield creamy, woody and nutty nuances through the combination of a Connecticut Shade Wrapper over a Sumatra Binder and Nicaraguan + Dominican fillers from the house that the Ventura family built. This cigar is very well balanced and nuanced with no particular flavor out of the aforementioned playing protagonist. Enjoy this cigar with some light roast coffee or a sweet bourbon.
