Back from the Safari with a whole new look.
Nestor Miranda of Miami Cigar Co. was inspired to create the Don Lino Africa after spending time traveling the African continent, and falling in love with the culture and scenery. The cigar was blended to capture the spirit of Africa, and became one of the brand’s most popular lines. Now, more than a decade after the original release, Don Lino Africa is being reimagined with a little help from AJ Fernandez.
Made by hand at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A. in Esteli, the revamped Don Lino Africa blend starts with a hand-selected long-filler blend of Dominican Piloto and Nicaraguan leaves from Ometepe, Jalapa, and Esteli. The binder is sourced from Cameroon in Africa, covered by a sultry Habano 2000 wrapper grown in Ecuador. Medium-full in body, box-pressed, and smooth as silk, you’ll be greeted by a fantastic draw and notes of exotic spice, cedar, roasted nuts, and leather. Grab a box and experience a blend inspired by one of the most beautiful places on Earth, the African Savanna.
Good news! Don Lino Africa has received an impressive 93-rating, noting: “Solidly packed and symmetrically pressed, this bronze robusto smokes evenly, delivering a creamy smoke that layers the palate with notes of black and white pepper, caramel, toast and fruit before the long finish of chocolate and leather.”
