We really like this cigar company. They continuously impress us with their newest line introductions and although we have featured their Dominican line, you’ve yet to experience their efforts with Honduran tobacco. Meticulously rolled in Nicaragua, the Limited Reserve line is individually wrapped with cedar and tipped with a gold foot, indicative of the intricate pleasures within. Underneath the cedar wrapper, the gorgeous Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper holds a Honduran binder and long-leafs. We found the Churchill featured this month on the mild to medium tasting end of the spectrum, leaning towards mild with notes of white pepper, tobacco, cedar, and hints of cream and toast which will build slightly build in strength throughout the smoke. The panel was unanimously enthusiastic about the Indian Tabac Limited Reserve Series. Highlights of this cool-smoking and handsome cigar include superb construction, a consistent draw, and an exemplary flavor which is subtle and refined, but hearty and satisfying. Overall, very satisfying. You’ll want more. Smoke it with an espresso.
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.
