Be prepared for the wrath that is coming! As the second-largest grower of tobacco in Nicaragua, the Oliva family's generations of experience in the industry has served them well. They grow some of the finest crops in the world and are known for using the most skilled rollers and blenders in the country to create legendary cigars. Studio Tobac is one of many side projects created by Oliva, and their Wrath is sure to please. This beauty comes dressed in a dark Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper securing a zesty Mexican binder and a gorgeous bouquet of aged long-fillers from Nicaragua’s premier three growing regions: Estelí, Jalapa and Condega. This combination lends to rich and somewhat spicy notes with smoothness and sweetness from the Maduro wrapper. Pair the Wrath with a Laphroaig 10 or your favorite single malt scotch whiskey.
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.
