Oscar Valladares has created outstanding blends over the years, turning the heads of cigar enthusiasts with quality, price and consistency. Oscar’s first creation was the original 2012 edition. 2012 was also the year the Mayan calendar predicted the end of the world, which accounts for the Mayan-themed artwork on the bands. With the enormous amount of success Oscar Valladares has experienced with his blends, Oscar decided to re-boot his first blend now in a box-pressed format, Oscar and his master blender, Byron Duarte, have created an even more impressive tasting line-up.
The 2012 by Oscar Barber Pole features a “barber pole” wrapper. This barber pole cigar features both a maduro & a candela wrapper intertwined. Using candela is nothing new on a barber pole, but this is unique in that it uses a box-pressed format with much bolder fillers than you’d expect from the typical candela.
