Sol Cubano has earned a reputation for churning out handmades that consistently deliver more than one would anticipate from a stick sold at such a great price point. Carefully crafted in Nicaragua, the Sol Cubano Series B Connecticut utilizes a Nicaraguan binder and a long-leaf mixture of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan tobaccos wrapped inside a silky smooth Ecuadorian-grown Connecticut wrapper. Note the prelight scent of sweet hay. On lighting, the sweetness carries over and a mild tobacco flavor takes the lead. The construction is tight and the draw is great. The burn is slightly wavy but by no means out of control and it remains consistent. At the halfway point, nutty notes add to the sweetness. Then look for flavors of cream, coffee and spice. Given how smooth and mild the Series B is, this is a cigar those new to cigar smoking might especially appreciate. But seasoned smokers, too, should find it a good anytime cigar. Check out our re-order prices on these—Series B is a consummate value.
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.
