This creamy, light bodied cigar is an amazing smoke for beginners and aficionados alike. It surprises one with wonderful sweetness and notes of honey and also fruit and grassiness.
While the strength remains light, the flavours strong.
The impetus for the brand came from the French Economy and Finance minister (and later President) Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, who proposed a cigar with a light flavour to pair with French products like champagne and foie gras. This eventually led to the French tobacco monopoly (SEITA) approaching Cubatabaco with the concept. The brand gets its name from the street (and quay) in Paris where SEITA’s headquarters was located.
Generally, for most of its existence, the brand was the quintessential example of a “local” marque, focused almost entirely on the French market. This changed somewhat in 2005, when production volumes and worldwide availability were increased. Now, we have them here and these wonderfully light and creamy cigar are ready to hit the Indian market for the first time
