El Rey del Mundo Tainos, a 7 x 47 Churchill that was released for Formosa, a former republic located on modern-day Taiwan that last under five months. The name Formosa was first used in 1542 by Portuguese sailors who, after discovering an uncharted island, labeled it on their maps as Ilha Formosa, which translates to beautiful island. Formosa existed from May 23-Oct. 21, 1895 following the first Sino-Japanese War, in which the island declared its independence from the Chinese Qing dynasty but was then taken over by the Japanese.

As for the cigar, it’s limited to 8,888 numbered boxes of 10 cigars. The name, Taínos, likely references the group of natives who occupied what is now the countries of Cuba, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and other Caribbean islands and are popularly credited as the ones who introduced Christopher Columbus—and thus the entire Western world—to tobacco.

Distinct combination of leather tack and almonds, interspersed with notes of cedar, earth, cinnamon, and hay.
