Blue Sapphire Toro Gordo
The 1502 Blue Sapphire Toro. This ultra limited, exquisitely constructed Nicaraguan puro comes with a dark chocolate colored wrapper. It’s the first from 1502 that isn’t a box-pressed vitola, but it’s leathery and oily feel clearly communicate the high level of quality that Enrique intended.
The Blue Sapphire’s flavor is medium – medium/full bodied. On light up, you’ll taste rich cocoa with notes of oak. There’s a mild sweetness that accompanies the flavor throughout the cigar. It’s everything we’ve come to expect from 1502 as a top shelf boutique brand.
You will find three lines totally different from each other, being 1502 Emerald the “Fina Fuerte” (Fine Strong), 1502 Ruby of medium strength and 1502 Black Gold with strongest character. Three spectacular bindings that exclaim the Nicaraguan flavor, which will delight at all times and will make an unforgettable experience
Quote: "I like to start my day with an Emerald, then I enjoy a Ruby after lunch, and a Black Gold to end the night." --Enrique Sánchez I.
Why 1502 as a name?
When Christopher Columbus discovered Nicaragua in 1502, he not only discovered a paradise land where natives with their rich cultures lived, he also discovered a new world full of riches. Riches such as gold, silver and many precious stones. But most importantly was the discovery of new and exquisite flavors, which undoubtedly conquered the same conquerors.
Before the conquest of America, commerce was done thru "el trueque" the exchange of products. This was done to such an extent that in Nicaragua our first official currency was the cocoa bean. Nevertheless, it is also common knowledge that tobacco was used as a means of exchange at a higher value, since this precious product was used in exclusive ceremonies. This exquisite product created an unimaginable demand in the old world, becoming one of the most valuable treasures of our continent.
It is here where Global Premium Cigars, has been able to unite "el Doblón Español" (the Spanish Doubloon) which was the official currency of the Castilla and Aragon Kingdom, with the most valuable currency of the heart of the new world, tobacco. It was with the Spanish Doubloon that tobacco was bought and traded between both worlds, and today we have the pleasure of introducing it to you as it was discovered in a sunk ship and forgotten by time, and now it is out in the open to marvel us with its most valuable treasure: Emerald, Ruby, and Black Gold. A treasure that is Proudly Nicaraguan.
