El Septimo was founded in 2005 in France. It then relocated to Geneva, Switzerland. A premium cigar brand with every offering qualifying as luxury. While the company is by no means new it recently made landfall in the United States. With less than 6 month in the U.S. it has already began to make its presence known in a major way.

The Cigar Collections

There were a few notable things I gathered after speaking with the the top of the food chain at El Septimo. The level of detail, craftsmanship, passion, and dedication to the craft. First, they only use whole leaves in their cigars. While that does not seem like a huge statement let it sink in. Several brands use the parts and pieces of the leaf that fits their need which is not an issue. El Septimo took the approach of using the entire leaf throughout the cigar which also means a good portion of their lines are large ring gauge. In my opinion it does add different flavor since each part of the leaf will not match. Second, during their fermentation process they leave their leaves in white rum and vegetable oil. The rum adds tons of flavor depending on time it is fermented. The oil adds a silky smooth and shiny look to the wrapper of the cigar. The oils also help pull flavor from the tobacco when you are enjoying it.

ES Cigars

El Septimo has several lines of cigars, but make no mistake. They see each blend and its own brand. As of right now they have roughly 40 different brands under the El Septino flag. They do have their selections under specific selections. The Diamond Collection, Luxus Collection, Travel Time Collection, Alexandra Collection, and Gilgamesh Collection can be found on their website at http://www.el-septimo.ch
