This Nica Libre Esteli Especial is a nice milk chocolate in color with thick claw like veins swirling through the smoke. The seams are invisible.
Aroma – Smoked wood and Barnyard
Type of Cut – Straight
Cold Draw – Cedar and spiciness
First third –Cedar, spice and oak hit the palate with a light pepper and nuts on the finish. The burn is wavy and ash fell at the inch mark.
Second Third – Plenty of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg come out in this one followed by that cedar like note. The burn remains wavy.
Final Third – All these flavors blend together into a brown sugar like note in the final third. Almost like taking all the ingredients and turning it into a delicious dish. The burn remains wavy.
Scotch – Johnnie Walker Double Black
Wine – Groth Oakville Cab
This Nica Libre Esteli Especial is a good stick for a great price. At 4 bucks a smoke you really get a lot in terms of flavor complexity through the transitions. I think it’s a steal for these and if you come across them you should pick them up.
