The 5 best Nicaraguan cigars

 CAO Pilon Churchill

CAO PILON

Churchill

7,80 €

The start is full and round, with a good volume of smoke. Initially very woody, the aromas quickly turn to fresher notes of underbrush and moss. The cigar then becomes smoother with a very fine, woody flavor profile. Increasingly intense roasted notes join the party. Pronounced aftertaste and slightly too strong in the finish, this is nevertheless a great cigar.

DAVIDOFF NICARAGUA

Toro

19,50 €

Full-bodied from the start. The first third is smooth and elegant. The spicy notes take backseat to a nice woody profile enhanced by a subtle hint of coffee. Its moderate strength makes this Toro very easy to smoke. A touch of hazelnut livens up the smoke before the final third adds more strength and intensity. Definite persistence but never aggressive thanks to the perfectly controlled strength. This superb cigar keeps things under control from start to finish.

OLIVA SERIE V

Lancero

9,80 €

After a subtle cold draw the Lancero reveals a nice woody and spicy start. The smoke soon becomes creamy and delicate, then the cigar serves up tender and sweet scents. Uniform but fairly tasty (fresh hazelnut and mushroom), there is lots of potential in this classic stick whose strength builds up gradually. Ideal construction and perfect balance. Warmly recommended.

ROCKY PATEL TABAQUERO HAMLET PAREDES

Salomon

15,00 €

A mild start with an indulgent, creamy ambience : a real treat for the taste buds. Aromas of cocoa and coffee make way for balsamic and musky scents. The indulgent stroll continues with nuances of mushroom and the same subtleness right through to the finish without breaking stride. Complex and delicate, this Salomon is a real hit. Proof positive that a heavyweight cigar can also have a soft touch.

VEGAFINA NICARAGUA

8-9-8

6,80 €

This slightly bitter 8-9-8, has good body as soon as you light up, building on fresh woody notes. Beautiful billows of smoke carry scents of green coffee and wood. Progressing nicely, this coherent cigar serves up notes of burnt hazelnut and earth mid-smoke. The final third has more depth while the superbly controlled strength moves up a notch. A fantastic cigar ; pleasant, fresh and flavorful down to the nub. Good aftertaste persistence.
