The popular Nica Rustica premium cigar brand was created as a tribute to Estelí, its people, and the amazing tobacco leaf that grows there. The gorgeous Connecticut broadleaf wrapper really caught my attention with its wonderful prelight aroma of hay and cedar, and silky feel in the hand. This cigar burns evenly and produces dense volumes of thick, rich smoke, while a solid white ash challenged me to keep it growing. Tastewise, this baby really captures the essence of Nicaraguan goodness by providing my palate with intensely satisfying notes of earth, pepper, sweet spice, chocolate, and cedar. Once again, the talented crew at Drew Estate has made another cigar worthy of a top spot in my daily rotation.
