A bold character from Estelí
Less than a decade ago, if you told me you could snag a premium Drew Estate cigar any day of the week for $5-$6, I would have called the men in white coats. That’s why the original Nica Rustica changed the game. It’s got it all. Attractive price point, premium tobaccos, rich & slow-burning experience, and even a 90-rating from Cigar Aficionado. Enter today, and Nica Rustica Adobe is here with the same blueprint. The good news is the blend works and delivers in a way that’s going to click with a lot of people.
This time, the Nica Rustica Adobe starts with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. This leaf provides a nutty core with underlying notes of dried fruit. Tucked just beneath is the real star of the show, a stout long-filler blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos hugged by a bold Brazilian binder. Woodiness and toastiness carry the flavor profile throughout most of the experience before hints of black pepper and baked bread show up in the tail end. Medium to full-bodied, and easy to puff on, many will find this blend enjoyable during just about any time of day. As fair warning, if you’re looking for a cigar just like Nica Rustica, this isn’t it. But if you like what the original brought to the table and want something different, look no more.
