For the third year in a row, Maya Selva cigars are celebrating the Chinese New Year with a new limited edition – La Flor de Selva Year Of The Rat LE 2020.
Entirely handcrafted with the finest tobaccos from the house’s traditional terroirs of Honduras and Nicaragua, this new blend features the elegant balance characteristic of the Flor de Selva brand. Its vanilla notes with hints of roasted almonds are sure to please the most demanding palates.
The design line combines traditional Chinese motifs with Mayan hieroglyphs. The site The rat is the first animal in the 12-year cycle that represents the Chinese zodiac. According to Chinese tradition, 12 animals guard the gates of heaven. According to Mayan tradition, we are all born with a Nahual, or spirit animal, to guide us through life.
The tobacco for toro size cigars is hand picked in the famous Jamastrán valleys in Honduras and Jalapa in Nicaragua. They will certainly be welcomed by new aficionados and for those who have enjoyed previous special editions of Flor de Selva celebrating the Year of the Dog (2018) and the Year of the Pig (2019).
