Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Habano

Basic Information:

Name – Miami Cigars – Nestor Miranda Habano

Size – Petite Robosto

Wrapper – Habano

Tobacco Blend – Nicaraguan, Dominican, Brazilian

Pricing – $6.75

Body – Medium

Construction/Appearance:

​The band is the standard Nestor Miranda Collection band only with neon green borders.

The cigar is a radiant reddish brown that glows in your hand. There are a few visible veins and tight seams. The cigar is finished with a triple cap.

Pre-Light:

Aroma – Barnyard and Chocolate

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Cedar and Spice

After Toast:

First Third – ​A nice spicy, tangy cedar wood note starts this off followed by an espresso and chocolate finish. Once the cigar settles, pepper blends in with the prior flavors and becomes the main course. The burn is sharp and the ash is pure white.

Second Third – ​Cedar, spice and pepper roll into this third with an occasional caramel and leather flavors hitting the palate randomly. Simple cigar so far but the flavors are distinct and savory. The burn is still sharp.

Final Third – ​​Cedar and spice carry over but some citrus notes finish out this smoke along with a subtle espresso.

Suggested Pairing:

Wine – Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon

Overall Experience:

This Nestor Miranda Habano is my favorite cigar in this collection. Miami Cigars put together a beautiful smoke, not overly complex but incredibly enjoyable. I first had these at the Miami Heat golf tournament a few years ago and have been hooked whenever I can get them. Their new corojo in this collection is also very good. Try one if not both of these if you can.
