From ACC Official: PROPIO cigars are the most innovative
cigars in the market today. Using aged and carefully fermented tobacco leaves, ACC has spent years creating new blends and flavors including wild grown tobacco from the rain forests of Ecuador and Peruvian Pelo de Oro. The result is something new and exciting giving cigar smokers a totally new experience.
What I noted in the unique smell of the PROPIO line was that it was replicated ‘almost’ as if the owner had given Jonathan Drew something to aspire to in his Undercrown and Liga blends, due to the very similar sweet room notes. While Liga Privada is sought after and hard to come by, nothing can compare to the extravagance of PROPIO. Plus, they were both developed for different clientele so..
I mentioned PROPIO in an earlier review when talking about the Leon, a personal favorite of mine.
The PROPIO cigar brand was developed with a fast pace, modern look and feel, included in both the revolutionary acrylic and aluminium tube packaging for the PROPIO cigars, but even their accessories showcase uniqueness among their peers.
The VENENO or Venom, is no different. A blend all its own, it stands out from the Leon by having more spice, power. Designed to imitate (and surpass) Cuban blends, the VENENO features a rich Habano leaf, and Santa Lucia, a leaf indigenous to the tribes of Ecuador. On it’s own, Santa Lucia is a powerhouse and cannot be smoked but if paired with the Ecuadoran Habano leaf, one not only gets the power, but finesse created by skillful blending.
More of a fuller body cigar than the Leon, the VENENO draws and burns well, is smooth. Pepper comes across, along with hints of cinnamon. A medium to full finish complete the cigar, complimented with plenty of spice, and a pleasant, sweet smell when burned, the PROPIO VENENO is literally every cigar smokers dream. Uncomplicated, inventive, luxurious.
