Erin Go Bragh may not be as picturesque as the rolling hills of Ireland but with its smooth, lovely, golden-brown Connecticut shade wrapper it must be close. Its orange, white and green band is a tribute to the Irish flag and its name – Erin Go Bragh – means “Ireland forever,” so the fact that it’s infused with authentic Irish whiskey is no surprise. The surprise is for those wary of flavored cigars. With its subtle and nuanced flavor this baby stands alone in a whole separate category of infused cigars. Roll it between your forefinger and thumb and you’ll note it has the look and feel of a top-quality premium cigar. This is not surprising since the Erin Go Bragh is produced in the Dominican Republic at the prestigious La Aurora factory. Expect the unexpected—a whiskey taste that’s very subtle–just enough to let you know it’s there. The whiskey is more prevalent in the aroma, and offers a nice interplay of rich sweet whiskey paired with the buttery, well-aged 100% Dominican long-leaf tobaccos. The flavor profile is creamy and toasty with natural sweetness that’s balanced by a crisp tobacco taste. Look for an easy draw, dense clouds of white smoke and a distinct aroma. The Erin Go Bragh is an exceedingly mild and smooth cigar. Make it your golf cigar or enjoy it as an occasional. This versatile smoke is light and smooth enough to be your first cigar of the day, but it still has enough “junk in the trunk” to serve as a pleasurable after-dinner treat. Try it with a mellow pale ale.
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.
