The Special Edition Robusto you have in your shipment today is a rare smoke that is rarely sold. A variation of the famous My Father cigar, this smoke boasts a mixture containing a bevy of hand-picked premium Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers which is secured by a zesty Nicaraguan binder and a flavorful and stunning Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. This combination features medium to full bodied notes of pepper, dark espresso, and hints of nuts. Elegant and complex, our panel recommended pairing it with an Old Fashioned.
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.
