The Cigar
This UK Regional Edition 2016 cigar has been produced by the Empresa de Habana at their factory in San Antonio de los Baños in Havana Province. Only 60,000 of these cigars have been produced so there are only 6,000 numbered boxes. Each cigar presents two bands, one for the brand and the other declaring “Exclusivo Gran Bretaña” or “Exclusively Great Britain”.

2016 is the second time that Juan Lopez has been chosen to produce a UK Regional Edition, following on from the Selección Suprema of 2009. It also once again sees the recreation of an old band originally found in an album of old cigar bands. This original revealed that it was customary for Juan Lopez cigars to include size names on its bands and there was evidence of additional embossing on the old bands. Both of these features have been faithfully recreated here.

This beautiful cigar has been tasted by Hunters & Frankau in Havana during the Habanos festival in March 2016 and then, more recently at the 2016 Summer Cigar Party at the Corithia, London in June. It was agreed by most people in attendance that the cigar was rich, pretty full flavoured, very characteristic of the brand but still young.

Tasting Notes

This wonderful cigar has full, rich flavours of earth, cedar and wood with a spicy kick throughout. As you smoke the cigar, you will be presented with beautiful, creamy smoke whilst the flavour develops into a medium chocolate flavour which spreads over the palate.

Enjoyed this stick on new years eve - Would recommend as for a special occasion given the complexity of the cigar. Smoke was light and tasted of cedar with hints of chocolate before ending on a spicy note to finish and lingered on my lips for a few hours into the night. 5* for this thing of beauty and am lucky enough to have 3 still in my humidor currently!

Juan Lopez is one of my favourite brands, Lovely wrapper, lovely draw and Lovely well balanced flavour. The two regular production sizes, Seleccion No 2 and No 1 have a very limited production because Cuba produce them for just a few countries. This brand is in my opinion, a classic old style Havana. I was very excited to try this regional production cigar. Juan Lopez seleccion Superba is the regional edition in the UK this year with measurements of 150mm x 54. The presentation is beautiful with an original Juan Lopez band with the double ''Exclusivo en Gran Bretana'' band. The cigar has a fantastic toasted nut aroma. I found in the first part a lovely toasted nutty taste, medium strength and very creamy with brown sugar notes. The second part is getting a bit stronger and I can taste a few salty notes on the palate. But, it is still very creamy with white pepper notes. Sweet but full bodied. The third part is completely full bodied with very rich flavour, sweet when the smoke enters your mouth but towards the end with some spicy notes. This third part is reminiscent of a nice Bolivar Royal Corona. Sadly I need to say good bye to this cigar, it was a fantastic Juan Lopez. The draw was not completely perfect in comparison with the regular production cigars but very well balanced in flavour. I will certainly have them again. Please come to our beautiful sampling lounge in Turmeaus Liverpool and enjoy this great smoke. All the best! David - Turmeaus Liverpool Humidor Manager
