The 2008 Olancho, San Agustin crop which adorns OSA Sol bears the distinctions of optimal climatic conditions which led to the expression of essential oils on the leaf. When met with General Cigar's proprietary methods, the oils contribute to the wrapper's uniquely robust, earthy flavor. To achieve its uniquely layered taste, the flavorful wrapper is enhanced by a Nicaraguan and Honduran blend, with a hearty Connecticut Broadleaf binder. The result is a provocative taste that has earned OSA Sol a devoted fan base. The editors of Cigar Journal are counted among them, as they named OSA to their prestigious list of the "Top 25 Cigars of 2011".
