Tierra Del Sol is one of a variety of blends Nick Perdomo produces in his Esteli, Nicaragua-based factory. His entire line is quite attractive, but the maduros, in our opinion, are stunning. We just had to try them out; and, upon pleasing our panel, they earned the right to be featured in our club. This stogie may not fit into the “classically beautiful” category, but no matter; we dig its box press shape and its rustic look. The dark, thick, and somewhat bumpy wrapper cloaks a well-packed blend of flavorsome tobacco. Look for a very toasty opening, with notes of chocolate that fall somewhere between sweeter milk chocolate and bitter dark cocoa. You’ll notice that the tobacco blend has a natural subtle sweetness, something we found very appealing. The finish is nothing but gentle, with absolutely no bite to speak of. What makes this cigar great is the superbly smooth, pleasant flavor that is as consistent as can be. The panel members have smoked over two dozen of these over the past couple of weeks, and they’re all solid. Extremely mild in body, it might not be what you expect upon visual inspection, but rest assured, this stogie is nothing but pleasant. The draw is great, the billows rotund, the aroma delightful, and the balance wonderful. As an added bonus, this cigar feels great in the hand and is easy to handle while doing other things, so if you’re one to light up a smoke while paying bills or doing your taxes (this is the month!) this is the perfect smoke. Pair it with your favorite single malt.
