If you’re looking for a great handmade that is smooth and creamy, and perfect for any time of day, then you are in luck my friend! The Nicaragua Cream Torpedo is handmade in Nicaragua and features a silky, golden brown, Nicaraguan Cuban-seed wrapper with an ever so slightly sweetened cap, that hugs a Nicaraguan binder and a ‘Cuban-sandwich’ of Nicaraguan fillers. For those unfamiliar with that blending technique, it mostly involves using short filler rolled inside long filler leaves. This tasty morsel lends medium to full-bodied notes of cream, cedar, and nuts with slight hints of sweetness from the cap. Enjoy this smoke with a Whiskey Ginger high-ball.
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.
