The Namakubi was the first natural cigar in years that really reminded me what natural wrappers could bring to the table again. Combine that with Ecuadorean leaf being exceptionally flavorful and complex and this could be one intense combo tht I'm very much looking forward to :) Thanks for the news Halfwheel Team and awesome release Matt :)
