The 601 line comes from the legendary mind of master blender Erik Espinosa, who has created some the best cigars out there. The La Bomba is another addition to his already stunning portfolio and is one of the strongest 601s to be added. This lip smacker is built with a luscious blend of extra fermented, extra feisty Nicaraguan ligero long-fillers, a Nicaraguan binder, and a dark, oily Nicaraguan Habano wrapper that has a ‘fuse’ coming out of the cap. Light ‘er up and notes of red pepper, nuts, cocoa, leather and espresso will hit your palate at full speed, no gradual warm up here! Although this smoke is a powerhouse, it stays refined and balanced all the way through. Enjoy this Nicaraguan smoke with your favorite Russian Imperial Stout.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
