REVIEW: Nica Libre 1990

I’m not usually one to talk about “bouquet” and the like when it comes to cigars, but the first thing that came to mind for this smoke, at the pre-light “first puff,” was the term ‘earthy.’

The Nica Libre 1990 comes in a beautiful box-pressed shape, boasting a San Andres maduro wrapper, with a taste that’s part-chocolate, part-coffee and part-‘unknown.’

Though this ‘gar does live up to the ‘maduro’ distinction, it’s not overpowering. Instead, the smoke is balanced and pleasant throughout, leaving you only wanting more.

I could go on, but suffice it to say this cigar has easily made its way into my top ten!

Well done.
