The wrapper on this cigar was a very dark brown and blackish with a closed foot .Â The cigar also showed a good amount of oils. When I gave it a squeeze I couldnâ€™t feel any soft spots and it was really firm. When I clipped it and did a cold draw, I could taste hints of chocolate and a leathery taste.
After lighting the Nica Rustica I could smell some earthy flavors, black pepper and wood. The retrohale had more pepper and wood. This stickÂ poured out smoke at a crazy rate making it a great cigar to light up in the car with the windows up and try and get pulled over by the cops. By the end of the first third, the pepper had died down some and mostly I was getting some dark roast coffee bean flavors.
The second third had a shit ton of earth flavors of and cedar. Construction was very good, with a straight burn line, nice solid ash and great draw.
As I got into the final third, the earth flavors became deeper and more bold, with a bit of espresso as well. As marketed this was a medium-to-full bodied stick. The only thing I would want different is for was more sweetness to balance the earthiness, even having the Maduro wrapper and binder didnâ€™t balance it out.This was a very good example of Nicaraguan flavors!
