The Mivida Cigar line is handmade by the Tabacalera Don Rafael factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic. The line features select Dominican filler and binder leaves that hail from the same tobacco fields which have historically yielded leaf for select grower General Tobacco and Davidoff cigars as well as the Don Antonio Pellegrino Churchill featured last month. The Mivida line features an earthy Indonesian Sumatran EMS wrapper and a tasty medium-bodied blend of Dominican and Honduran tobaccos. We looked at 3 sizes and unanimously decided that we couldn’t decide between the robusto and the Toro so we opted for the longer of the two and will let you be the judge!
Note a dark EMS Indonesian wrapper with some veins present. Not an exceptionally oily wrapper. We found the construction to be solid with a medium fill, easy draw and even burn. You’ll get good smoke volume out of this toro and want to look for a nutty and herbal flavor. We also picked up some cedar tones in this relatively mild Dominican. Look for a smooth finish. This cigar was well aged. Overall, a great mild blend that would pair nicely with anything you could possibly toss on the Barbeque! Consider pairing it the roasted maltiness of an Irish Stout like Guinness or Murphy’s.
