Easton, PA (PRWEB) December 17, 2013

The all-new Cigar Advisor Magazine is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers. Cigar Advisor Magazine has just published a new article by Altadis Cigars entitled “The Perfect Blend.” The article is a look at how manufacturers come up with new blends to be used in a new cigar line.

Altadis, responsible for cigars such as Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta has great experience in blending premium cigars using a proven process. The article reads “The process begins by determining the flavor profile the team is looking to achieve. Usually the trending desires of adult consumers are the biggest influencing factor, but premium cigar makers may also try to fill a gap in their portfolio or work emerging or rare tobaccos into a creative or unique cigar.”

Altadis uses their group of master blenders called the Grupo de Maestros to create these new blends. “When it comes to creating new cigars, the Grupo de Maestros have access to literally every type of premium tobacco commercially available. These tobaccos are sorted by Altadis U.S.A.’s leaf and manufacturing departments, who have smoked “puros” of each type to determine their exact characteristics and know what each will offer a particular blend. Like a great chef who has a masterful knowledge of his or her ingredients, the Maestros use their knowledge to unleash their creativity and craft the perfect recipe for the new stick.”

Once the Grupa de Maestros agree on a blend, they start production on their new cigar. The blending process is a complex and rigorous but the end result is the perfect cigar.
