Year of Puff Review

Stallone Alagan Review: The Experience

The cigar required a few touch ups on the burns, but not a deal breaker. The cigar had notes in the same range, so it was not the most complex. It provided a good smoking experience, and I would smoke another.

Stallone Alagan Review: The Brand

Last year, Privada’s playful spoof on the Chinese Zodiac nearly led to a lawsuit, but true to the Privada spirit, They’re back with another daring release. Year of Puff, expertly crafted by the renowned AJ Fernandez in Estelí, Nicaragua, rivals Zodiac releases from luxury brands at twice the price. This 6×54 toro features a Cuban-seed, Ecuadorian-grown wrapper aged for over ten years, as well as a three-year-aged binder from Estelí. The fillers, personally cultivated by AJ on his farms in Nicaragua, include a pinch of magic for an extraordinary smoking experience. Between the unbeatable smoking experience and highly collectible packaging, Year of Puff promises to be one of 2024’s premier offerings.
Release Date: Friday, June 7.
