Araperique is one of the rarest and most
sophisticated tobacco types in the world. It provides
the special note in the aromatic blend for this
unusual long filler cigar. Masterfully blended with
other prestigious tobaccos for a refined, aromatic and
truly exciting flavour experience such as you have
never had before.
There are tobaccos that are unusual – and then there are those also produced
in an unusual way. Araperique excels here as one of the most unusual and
sophisticated tobaccos in the world. A tobacco that exacts the highest level of
expertise, from its special planting through to its intensive cultivation, unusual
ageing process and final processing.
Its name is derived from the special ageing technique used for it – the ‘Perique
method’. This method was developed by the Native American Choctaw
tribe, who make Araperique from raw Arapiraca tobacco. The tobacco
is harvested leaf by leaf and hung to dry before being stemmed by hand.
Afterwards it is carefully packed into oak whisky barrels in layers,
where it is left to age under high pressure for at least one year.
To ensure even fermentation, the tobacco needs to be reshuffled by hand
multiple times during the ageing process, which in the end results in the
development of a distinctly powerful aroma unique to Araperique. An aroma
with rich, complex characteristics. A full-bodied blend for the perfect, ‘excitante’
moment. Masterfully blended with other prestigious tobaccos. The result is a
sophisticated cigar with a complex and rich aroma. Hand-rolled by carefully
selected cigar makers who skilfully ply their craft to make every BUENA VISTA
Araperique an excitingly different cigar experience.
