2010 marked not only a start for La Barba but for Tony Bellato and Craig Rossi – the 2 years planning the original release of the La Barba Red was well worth every moment. Working with Robert Caldwell of Caldwell cigars as distribution, the La Barba brand exploded on the market.
The people wanted more and that is just what Tony Bellato and Craig Rossi did. A carefully blended addition with assistance from Henderson Ventura and Robert Caldwell, the Ecuadorian HVA Habano wrapper accompanied by a Dominican Corojo binder and a blend of ‘Carbonell’ – a rare Dominican tobacco – gives this cigar a flavor profile of black pepper, wood, toast and a subtle sweet note.
There is no denying that the La Barba Purple is one of our favorite La Barba cigars.
