First of all, let me tell you that I don’t smoke cigars of non-Cuban origin. Not that I am an arrogant person that don’t  smoke anything but luxury cigars, the truth is much more simple. I live in the UK and have permanent access to them.

Anyway, why did I choose to smoke namely this cigar, after all? One day I thought that something different than a Cuban stogie would change my day and make it more interesting. I was told that this cigar is perfect for beginners who would like to switch to something stronger and heavier. I thought, ok, so I wasn’t a beginner but Nicaraguan cigars were a novelty for me, and so I decided to give them a try.

The cigar looked good, not perfect but good which was not bad at all. Some visible veins on its wrapper, as well as few blotches and a toothy appearance didn’t add to its appearance but  it didn’t scarce me.

From the first puffs, I understood that this was a decent cigar, with an easy pre-draw and strong, sweet, yet earthy flavors that pleased my buds. The cigar then continued to amaze me with its earthy notes mixed with some peppery hints that didn’t seem to be very strong.
The ash had white color and felt nicely, not causing me any inconvenince.

Another flavors and aromas that I felt while smoking this cigar, besides earthy and peppery, were also floral and leathery – an excellent combination for a medium-bodied cigar!

Definitely, it was a pleasant experience for a person who had a high profile on Cubans and always refused anything but Havanas. I would surely recommend it to everyone who is a beginner in smoking cigars of any origin, in general.

By the way, I would also like to thank Robert who recommended me these wonderful cigars and also that was my safe and speedy place to buy cigars from.
