The Aviator Series is a truly artisanal range of cigars made from aged tobacco selected from private estates. This limited, ongoing production from Principle Cigars is sophisticated, vibrant and delicately-balanced. 

Blended by Darren Cioffi, hand-crafted by a small, permanent group of rollers at the Kelner Boutique Factory under the supervision of Hendrik Kelner, Jr.



Envoi (5x50)

WRAPPER: Dominican Cotui, BINDER: Dominican, FILLER: Dominican, Peru
This layered, tart yet woody blend originally was for Hendrik Kelner’s own use.  It so well embodied the spirit of the Aviator Series, we took it over exclusively for the Envoi.

Cochon Volant (5x65)

WRAPPER: Dominican Cotui, BINDER: Dominican, FILLER: Dominican, Nicaragua, Peru
A popular vitola in the early part of the century, cigars of this fashion faded from production in Havana in the 1930s.  Using vintage examples, we built our own molds and crafted a complex blend that is sweet but classic in nature. 

Vainqueur (6.5x56)

WRAPPER: Brazilian Cubra, BINDER: Nicaragua, FILLER: Dominican, Pennsylvania, Peru
This complex, dynamic smoke is the flagship of the Aviator Series.  It starts out smooth and captivating with licorice notes.  Molasses and caramel tones grow more intense.

Grande Pyramide (7.5x60)

WRAPPER: Brazilian Cubra, BINDER: Nicaragua, FILLER: Dominican, Connecticut Broadleaf, Peru, Pennsylvania, Nicaragua
The entire production of Grande Pyramides is limited to ten cigars daily, all using the same mold by the factory manager at KBF.  Dense in nature and cool-smoking with a porcelain-like blend.  A delicately balanced and complex, five-country, seven-tobacco blend.
