Dominican Criollo '98
and Piloto Cubano
I am the Master of my fate,
I am the Captain of my soul.
These are the closing two lines of William Ernest Henley’s poem, “Invictus,” which inspired the cigar’s name.
José Blanco is a world-renowned cigar blender, and it is offerings like this one that illustrate why he is so highly regarded. José's blends are known for their complexity, and this delivers in spades. However, it is also probably the strongest cigar he has ever developed. What is unusual is that the strength is delivered using primarily Dominican tobacco.
This spirit evoked in Henley's poem is an eternal driving force for success in any of life’s endeavors, and Invictis is the cigar to accompany you on that journey.

was a tasty smoke that I
wound up nubbing. The
