We love when a new cigar comes our way; we love it even more when it’s packed with flavor and the construction is flawless. We love it even more when we find one that you can’t get anywhere else and is exclusive to you, our members. The Varina Farms Winter Warmer is all of those thing in one small, tasty morsel. The Winter Warmer features a blend comprised of a hearty Nicaraguan core and binder that comes from the rich volcanic soils of Nicaragua. The cigar is finished with a thick Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper that carefully hugs the filler and core. Together, this medium to full-bodied smoke will lend flavors of strong espresso, spice, and dark chocolate with hints of cream. All in all, the cigar remains flavorful and rich throughout but never too overpowering. We definitely recommend firing one up after a hearty meal though. It’ll enhance the experience, and ensure the cigar is never too much. Pair it with a cappuccino.
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.
