Furia demonstrates a solid personality with notable aromatic richness and an accomplished character, with strength and density. 

Straightforward tastes and aromas surprise the taster's palate with an intense richness. Furia's strong nature reveals a captivating character. As  indirectly suggested by its environment, the cigar strength is there but is always controlled. Furia is surprisingly stout and deep. 

The Story of the Names

Also known as Erinias or Euménides, the Furies were born of the Night, (although it is also said that they arose when Cronos cut the testicles to his father Uranus and the blood of the god fell on the Gea, the mother earth), and they watched the door towards the lower world, punishing those whose crimes had not been expiated in the world of mortals. They tried to restore the lost order. Sometimes they also rose to the surface and there persecuted those who wanted to get away with some crime.

The Furies (Furias in spanish), which in their origins had an uncertain number, ended up being only three. Their names were Tisifone, Alecto and Megera and they had a dog's head, vampire wings and, instead of hair, snakes. To carry out their mission they carried with them leather whips and fearsome bronze rings.

Tisifone was the one in charge of punishing the daring ones to go beyond the limits of good behavior and was known as the Avenging Fury. Megera was responsible for creating hatred, discord, among mortals. Alecto persecuted them without rest until they were killed by madness or were unable to commit such a crime again.

They say that when Orestes went desperate to Apollo to know the name of the murderer of his father, King Agamemnon, the oracle revealed that he had been his own mother, Climenestra, wife of the king, the author of such crime. Orestes, out of himself, put an end to his mother's life. Then the Alecto Fury entered the scene, tormented the unfortunate Prince Orestes for the crime he had committed.

Furies tormenting

Orestes went again to the help of the gods, this time being Athena chosen, to pray for the end of her sentence. Athena, the warrior goddess, managed to convince Alecto that the son of Agamemnon had already paid his acts with enough pain and was forgiven. Now, Orestes was to bring from the city of Tauride a statue that had been consecrated to Artemis, sister of Apollo and goddess of the hunt.

From this moment, the Furies are renamed Euménides and to be considered as benevolent, although, that is, they continued to persecute the criminals.

Tasting Notes

A personality off the beated track. Notable aromatic richness and a well-rounded character. Taste and aromas show richness and balance with a forward personality.
