Boutique Blends President Rafael Nodal was a guest on the 10/26/13 Cigar Authority Show and broke news for a 2014 project called the Aging Room Bin No. 1.
On the show, Nodal said that,there is a small amount of tobacco that has been stored in a bin in their warehouse known as “bin number 1”. This is tobacco that blender Jochy Blanco has been testing at Tabacalera La Palma for some time. Nodal said that this tobacco (by the time the cigar will be released) will have aged for sixteen years. The Aging Room Bin No. 1 will be a blend comprised of all of the same leaf (wrapper, binder, and filler) from that bin.
Nodal described the cigar as a medium, well-balanced cigars. He said the long-term aging of the cigar will not make this a cigar with a lot of strength.
Specifics of the tobacco leaf, sizes, and production numbers were not disclosed, but Nodal mentioned it will be a small batch release.
