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
(5 x 50)

Wrapper: Cubra (Brazil)
Binder: Dominican
Filler: Dominican, Nicaragua, Peru

The Envoi recipe was created originally by Hendrik Kelner for his own use. The layered blend gets some of its complexity from a double-binder (rarely seen, especially in a smaller-format cigar). It fit so well within the spirit of the Aviator Series, we took it over exclusively for the Envoi.


 

Cochon Volant
(5 x 65)

Wrapper: Corojo (Ecuador)
Binder: Dominican
Filler: Dominican, Nicaragua, Peru

From CigarAndCraftBeer: Cold Draw: leather, pepper, spicy, espresso, fresh green grass, hay. First Third: cream, caramel, fresh ground coffee beams, sweet red pepper, chocolate brownie, bread from the grill, peanut butter, mint. Second Third: honey, toast, cream, wood, walnut, cinnamon, rosemary, little salt, earth, rum aroma, cedar, dried figs. Last Third: black coffee, grass, a little mint, a little spicy but discreet, leather, sweet red pepper, butter, truffle oil, bitter sweet chocolate, cappuccino, almonds, orange peel. Conclusion: A dream of a cigar we all said. So it will be a cigar that has to be in our humidor.


 

Vainqueur
(6.5 x 56)

Wrapper: Corojo (Ecuador)
Binder: Dominican
Filler: Dominican, Nicaragua, Peru

From Cigar Press: Sweet floral and cedar like notes were on the pre-light nose and taste. Solid in the hand, the cigar had an effortless draw and provided dense, creamy textured smoke. It was sweet and floral with mild white pepper notes in the nose. Very aromatic. The cigar continued to build in flavor and body strengths. Full flavors with a mild-medium body. Outstanding construction. A unique and flavorful cigar.


 

Grande Pyramide
(7.5 x 60)

Wrapper: Cubra (Brazil)
Binder: Dominican
Filler: Dominican, Nicaragua, Peru, Pennsylvania, Connecticut Broadleaf

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 lighly sweet, porcelain-like blend.  A delicately balanced and complex, five-country, seven-tobacco blend.

Patrie
(7 x 50)

From Cigar Journal: Cedar wood with honey sweetness, coffee and caramel, leather, and with a pinch each of salt and pepper - a gentle, harmonious and, above all, creamy cigar. Perfect handiwork; excellent draw and burn.
