1st quarter: Once lit, the cigar offered a light, spicy note in the aroma and in the taste. The draw was extremely smooth with no resistance, and the flavors were rich with some earthy notes. 2nd quarter:I noticed some rich cocoa and earthy notes along with a creamy texture that carried over into the flavor. The aroma had a sweet tone with some underlying spiciness throughout. Its great flavors continued to build slowly, culminating into a medium body. 3rd quarter: The smoke was dense in its texture, offering a peppery spice and some sweet notes. It both burned and smoked great and delivered full flavor. 4th quarter: The cigar remained easy to enjoy, never growing too complex but still loaded with awesome flavor.
My good buddy, Sam Morales, spoke to production manager, Chris Caban, of Kings Cigars and asked him to send me some samples. Chris kindly obliged. He sent me one Conde and two King of Kings. That was about 3 weeks ago. So this will be the first time I will have tried the Conde.
Everything I know about Kings Cigars comes directly from their web site. They attended the trade show this month in Vegas to seek out distributors for their new line of cigars.
I tried to contact Chris to get more info about the company and the cigars but he didn’t return my two emails. I guess he is busy.
“Distribution for Kings Cigars is based in Pompano Beach, FL, while the company boasts a factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic, and Esteli, Nicaragua. Officials expect that early production ending with a very long aging process will conclude just a few days before IPCPR.”
This is the third in a series of 5 reviews of the Kings Cigars blends. Today we will discuss the Conde, an absolutely delightful smoke. The Conde is the newest blend from Kings Cigars released in 2015. The Conde is a true Prince to the overall Kings Cigars line, bold and new in flavors. It represents the Kings Cigars first use of Mexican San Andres leaf on their cigars. The wrapper is a dark chocolate-brown with that light sandpaper grit to it. The San Andres Wrapper cloaks a magnificent blend of Nicaraguan binder and Proprietary blended filler.
Kings Cigars offers the Conde in 5 vitolas each in boxes of 20:
ROBUSTO: 5 X 52
TORO: 6 X 50
CHURCHILL: 7 X 52
TORPEDO: 6.5 X 54
DOUBLE CORONA: 7.5 X 50
The band, which follows along with the Kings Cigars theme of a coat of arms, is much simpler than other bands in the Kings lineup. The coat of arms is a simple gold shield with a heraldic black eagle emblazoned on it. I like that Kings Cigars chose the Heraldic eagle as the symbol of the Conde and that the head of the eagle points in the Dexter (right of the bearer) direction, thus indicating the Conde is not just another cigar, but rather one of great honor to the company. The shield itself is adorned with a royal crown and there are royal lions on left and right of the shield. The word Conde is written in gold on a green ribbon under the shield and the shield itself is adorned with a royal crown.
This 7×52 stick features a very dark brown mottled wrapper with a soft spongy pack, small veins, tight seams, big double cap and pungent damp musty aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful rich medium-full smoke output showing oily smooth flavors of a sweet tobacco with a gritty wood finish. The first third burns perfectly with rich thick smoke, adding a creamy coffee to the sweet tobacco on the draw while the finish gets a subtly pepper and heat lasting well until the next draw. The ash hold for an inch at a time with a razor sharp burn line. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point performance remains excellent and flavors unchanged. Ending at 1:15 the last third continued the same complex flavor profile while getting just a little warm and bringing the body to a full while a medium strength sneaks in. Thank you very much to Kings Cigars for sending this in for review!
This Broadleaf wrapper has the look of a deep, dark chocolate – almost good enough to eat – which is the perfect combination with the Nicaraguan binder and our proprietary fillers.

This cigar lives up to its name, it truly is Fit for the King of all Kings…

I’m not extremely familiar with Kings Cigars so I’m eager to see what this offering is like. Let’s check it out…
During my time at the Tweet Up this year, I was fortunate enough to meet a bunch of great people and thanks to David and Burns Tobacco, open my eyes to some cigars that I was unfamilar with. One of those companies turned out to be Kings Cigars. Pete Tyndell, their marketing director, did a great job of engaging seemingly everyone to chat and talk about their cigar line. I was unable to have one of their cigars during the event, but everyone I talked to smoking them raved. A few weeks after the event, I tracked them down and asked where I could purchase cigars for review. Anwar Mithavayani, Founder and CEO, was kind enough to point me in the right direction to pick up the sampler from which I am testing the King of Kings Broadleaf for this review.
The unwrapping of the King of Kings Broadleaf found me zero construction…
This is the new cigar from King’s Cigars. It came out last year and it’s a short 4×50 figurado. The cigar has a Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Jalapa binder, and Nicaraguan filler.
The El Duque is a light to medium brown in color. Here is a shot of the foot. The test draw after cutting the cap was firm. That’s typical with a figurado. Once lit, the cigar tends to draw better. The initial flavors at light up were sweet orange citrus and caramel with light butter, black coffee, and black pepper rated at an 8. The finish is a caramel-like flavor with some lingering pepper.
Looking at he King of Kings cigar and it just portrays boldness. Really a hefty cigar with a colorful, beefy band. Scent from the wrapper is slight barnyard, foot gives a chocolatey smell and the cold draw gives a dry cocoa taste. I used the Xikar VX cutter and cut it width-wise (see video) to preserve the cap with it being a soft pressed and the cap was not attached at one part. Lit up easily and away we go.
Size Reviewed: 6 inches x 64 ring gauge (soft box pressed)
When I hear the name King of Kings, I think of the obvious biblical reference as well as the sonnet Ozymandias about the great Pharaoh Ramesses (or Ramses) II, penned by the early 19th-century English romantic poet, Shelley. “My name is Ozymandias, king of kings; Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!” In my view, any cigar with that name has quite a reputation to live up to.
Until fairly recently, I did not know much about Kings Cigars. However, some careful research on the Internet (along with speaking to a cigar aficionado friend) helped to enlighten me about the company. Kings Cigars is a relatively new company, which started up in 2010. It offers a line of royal-themed, handmade cigars from Esteli, Nicaragua and Santiago in the Dominican Republic….
The Ecuadorian Habano wrapper is medium brown with a velvety feel and small veins are scattered throughout. A light sheen of oil can be seen as light bounces off the stick. As I inspect the cigars for soft spots, I am surprised not to find any on such a large cigar. The cigar has a hefty feel and from what I can tell, the construction is solid. We shall see how it holds up during the smoke. The wrapper aroma is faint with notes of cocoa, barnyard, and cedar. The foot aroma is outstanding with the cocoa right on the forefront, raisins, and rich tobacco.
The King of Kings is one of three cigars that are initially being launched by a new company called Kings Cigars. Kings Cigars has been a near three year project that was started by Anwar Mithavayani and Pete Tyndale. From the company web-site, Mithavayani is the Director of Sales while Tyndale is listed as the Master Blender. The company actually has two factories – one in Santiago, Dominican Republic and the other….
Kings Cigars has announced that at this week’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, it will unveil its newest line, Knights, which it describes as a premium cigar offered at an attractive price that doesn’t sacrifice quality.
Knights is being released in three wrapper varieties: Connecticut, Ecuadorian habano and Brazilian mata fina maduro, with the fillers coming from the Estelí and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua. It will be released in a number of different vitola options depending on the wrapper: Figurado (4 x 50, habano and Connecticut), Robusto…..
As part of the Kings Cigars Signature Series, the Prince is a bold statement for the 5 year old Kings Cigars company. Anwar chose to go with a 4-year-old wrapper and 6-year-old binders and fillers. The blend is described as:
