Cavalier Genève Oddjob
This LCA release is named after the bad guy in a James Bond film. Appearing in the film Goldfinger, “Oddjob” is a villain known for his iconic bowler hat with its sharpened steel rim. Naming the cigar after the villain of a film that has James Bond investigating gold smugglers is a reference to Cavalier’s signature gold foil found on all of their cigars. The 6×52 cigar features a Viso Jalapa Nicarguan wrapper, a habano Honduran binder, and fillers from Honduras, Nicaragua, and Paraguay. The cigar is rolled at Fabrica Centroamericana de Tabaco SA.
Privada Watch Series: Root Beer
Our second LCA offering this month is the Privada Watch Series: Rootbeer. The name takes inspiration from the bi-colored bezel commonly referred to as “Root Beer.” Like the Pepsi, this colorway was first introduced by Rolex and has been replicated by numerous other watchmakers. Root Beer is a 6×54 Honduran puro using only tobaccos grown at the farms of Hugo Endemaño and rolled at his factory, Raíces Cubanas.
