Introducing our newest size barrel-fermented cigar to the Pappy & Company collection: The Flying Pig. Available exclusively at pappyco.com.
The Flying Pig is one of the most desired vitolas in our portfolio, presented in a 100mm x 60 ring gauge vitola, and is a favorite amongst cigar enthusiasts worldwide. The shape is based on a photograph of an 1895 cigar salesman’s size selection case. It is one of the most complicated vitolas to manufacture due to the unique size and signature pig-tail, which requires specialized training of the buncheros and rolleras at the factory.
The Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve Barrel-Fermented Flying Pig features the same blend as our other barrel fermented cigars, so tasting notes are the same although you can expect a smoother smoking experience due to the larger ring gauge.
In addition, due to its unique size, the Flying Pig vitola while shorter in length is a long smoking experience, so enthusiasts can easily expect this cigar to last an hour and a half.
Any smoker can enjoy this vitola, although it is a larger ring gauge. It is a must for any barrel-fermented cigar aficionado and those who want to experience our collection in a new light.
For those new to the collection, the Pappy Van Winkle Barrel-Fermented cigar is a 100% long-filler, premium cigar made totally by hand in very small batches at Drew Estate in Estelí, Nicaragua. This historic cigar features a bourbon-barrel-fermented, tapa-negra-style wrapper over a Mexican San Andres base wrapper, as well as aged, Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, personally selected by me. It is the perfect choice for pairing with any of the Van Winkle bourbon and rye products.
The strength level of the Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented Cigar is "Medium Plus," which allows both new smokers and experienced aficionados to enjoy the blend. It's a well-rounded, sophisticated cigar, with body and a hearty expression. The Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented premium cigar is truly a showcase of our passion for cigar-making.
The cigar set comes in a lined, custom wooden box with 12 Flying Pig cigars. Please be advised the seal might be cut as they are randomly selected while going through customs.
These cigars are sold exclusively by Pappy & Company.
