Wynwood Cigars are based out of the Wynwood area in Miami, Florida. The Wynwood area is known as the art district of Miami, and is full of colorful wall paintings from local artists. This is the area in which the team decided to build their factory, and it employs a handful of rollers that were selected to come there from Honduras. The factory in Miami is called Tabacaleras Unidas, and it is here that Asylum Cigars and Wynwood Cigars will be made. While Wynwood has two cigars, I am still waiting on confirmation for all information on them. This particular cigar is a Honduran puro, and is made up of entirely Corojo tobacco. I do know that these particular cigars come without bands, and that the boxes are painted by local artists before being shipped. All boxes are incredibly colorful, and this particular cigar came in a box that is best described from the photo of the lid below.

These particular cigars are fresh rolled cigars, and are sent directly from the factory after being rolled. They are kind of a special edition smoke and are intended to be smoked directly or after a certain time period of resting, roughly 90 days. I have smoked some fresh rolled cigars, and I can tell you that they are very enjoyable after rolling, but after a little bit of time you begin to notice they are not tasting as great, "sick period," and need to spend some time in the humidor before smoking again. I actually had the opportunity to roll a couple of my own one time and then age them before smoking on graduation. The particular vitola I grabbed was the 465, and is a 5.5" by 46 ring gauge corona gorda. The cigar has a very soft aroma at the foot, and it shows some lovely fruit, wood, spices and leather notes. Cigar has a light coloring, almost a light Colorado, and is very toothy in appearance. It is a firm cigar and beautifully rolled.
