Nicaragua continues to produce top-notch cigars that are increasingly competing with, and many would argue, dominating high-end Dominican and Honduran products. The tradition of tobacco production in Nicaragua dates to the Colonial period of its history. Beginning in 1522, conquering Spanish explorers plundered the natural resources of the country. By the second half of the 16th century, in addition to slaves, indigo, and gold, tobacco became an important export to Europe. The best tobaccos of Nicaragua come from the Esteli area of Jalapa valley. Here, tobacco growers produce long leaf filler, wrappers and binders. While some of the tobacco grown is of the Connecticut seed variety, the majority is Cuban seed. These seeds are the same Cuban seeds that were first grown in the Dominican Republic and then across the Caribbean to Honduras and Nicaragua. Immediately note a rich, oily and inviting Colorado wrapper. We found the corona # 3 to offer a medium-bodied well-balanced smoke. The draw was even and solid and the cigar held a nice gray-white ash, indicative of proper aging. Look for an earthly, spicy body with a touch of sweetness lingering on your palate. The finish was equally enjoyable and didn't linger too long. Overall, a tasty little cigar that you might just want to pair with a Cadillac Margarita on the rocks.
