Oct 21st 2011 - Man O War Armada

Today's cigar is the Man O War Armada Toro Grande in a 6.5x56 vitola. The Armada is nothing short of amazing. The Ecuadorian Sumatra Maduro wrapper lets you know you are in for a treat and features ligero long fillers from Nicaragua. The Armada features a great balance of a light spice, earth and a sweet woody tone. I chose this to be today's cigar to celebrate the anniversary of the launching of the USS Constitution. Old Ironsides is a legend of US Naval Warfare. In the 1840's Old Ironsides circled the world and to this day is the oldest floating commissioned naval vessel in the world. During the War of 1812 against Great Britian Old Ironsides defeated 5 British Warships while capturing numerous merchant ships. Old Ironsides took on a small Aramada in it's day and was the only ship left afloat.
