The Seven SYN.s

SYN, brief for SYNOPSIS which is a summary or essence of a literary work such as a novel or an opera.  But SYN when pronounced sounds like SIN. Hence in the world of SYN, what is a SIN? Or is a SYN actually a SIN?  Well, A SYN or a SIN both constitute all the mysteries and pleasures life has to offer. It is the desire to discover new territories in both physical and metaphoric forms, thereby experiencing new sensations and perspectives.  It is a journey into the self, to know who we are and what evokes different emotions within us. It is the courage to taste not only the sweet summer fruits, but also the bitter fruits of winter on our journey through seduction and sensuality.  It enhances our perception of nature and connects us to one another, and facilitates conversations and memories from simplest to the most intoxicating of moments or affairs. So you see, there is a very fine thread between a SYN to a SIN, and we dare you to stride on that string.

As a tribute to the notion of the Seven Deadly Sins of mankind, Tabacalera SYN presents the following sinful cigar blends:
