Excellence on a grand scale

Our Serie R collection is known for its large ring gauges and full-bodied blends, but nothing compares to our latest offering.

The Serie R No. 8 Maduro uses the same spicy, rich blend that’s been savored for years, now brought to life in a new 7 x 70 vitola. Serie R Maduro’s journey begins at the El Credito Factory in the Dominican Republic, where it’s hand rolled by our skilled team of tobacco artisans at El Credito.

At its core, you’ll find a timeless blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos that deliver a powerful yet refined smoking experience. This refined mix is then housed in a Nicaraguan binder and a dark, oily Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper, bringing extra spice and depth to your palate.

Notes of earth, spice, wood, and floral unfold from this full-bodied masterpiece, making it the ideal pairing for a glass of bourbon or cognac. And to top it all off, Serie R No. 8 Maduro is a full-time addition, allowing you to indulge at any moment.
