Oscar Valladares 2012 Barber Pole Toro Bundle (6 x 52/Bundle of 20)
As an acknowledgment of the predictions associated with 2012, Oscar Valladares created a cigar line named for the year. It was a nod to the Mayan calendar, the Mayan people of the area that is current day Honduras, and what appeared to be its prediction that the world would end in 2012. It was also his first commercially available line.
The blends uses a Nicaraguan binder and Honduran filler, using a Honduran corojo wrapper and the end-of-the-world cigar using a Nicaraguan maduro wrapper.
Since that time, the company has kept the 2012 line going, updating it in 2017 as part of the company’s fifth anniversary. That included updating the blends of the three lines while adding some new sizes. In October 2018, the company released the 2012 by Oscar Reserva Original, a limited batch of the original release.
Wrapper: Candela & Mexican San Andrés
