El Mejor Espresso is a distinctively dark Nicaraguan that melds the smooth subtleties of delicate aging with the kick of hearty Nicaraguan & Mexican tobaccos. The Mexican maduro wrapper is velvety smooth to the touch, with ample oil. Our panel is always torn between smoking these types and eating them up like candy bars (hey—it’s easy to confuse the two—it’s dark, you have to unwrap it, and is box-pressed to boot!) The term Espresso is not intended to describe any sort of flavor infusion, but rather, the deep dark color and subtle notes of black coffee & cocoa that you can expect in the flavor profile. Much like well-made microbrewed beer, tobacco and malted barley, when treated and cured in the proper fashion, will impart in the finished product a range of robust flavors. Like an authentic stout, there’s no chocolate or coffee involved in the making of this product; the full range of flavors come naturally from the way the tobaccos have been grown and cured. Our panel found this cigar to be exceptionally easy to smoke, providing a gentle draw throughout. The aroma is sweet and carries through to the sweet and spicy finish. A mild-to-medium-bodied smoke, this cigar has the power to hold up to a steak dinner, but alternatively will work mid-day with lunch—Nestor Plasencia has put his genius to work once again to make this versatile, flavorful cigar. Enjoy with a dry Irish stout like Guinness or an Imperial Stout like Old Rasputin by North Coast Brewing Company.
