Alec Bradley's first Nicaraguan puro.
The Nica Puro marks the first Alec Bradley cigar crafted with all Nicaraguan tobaccos. Surprising, I know, especially when you consider the impressive slew of 90+ rated blends now under the Alec Bradley umbrella. But that's neither here nor there - what is important is that the Nica Puro hits all the right keys in typical Alec Bradley fashion.
Medium-bodied, well-balanced and rich, the Nica Puro is everything a Nicaraguan cigar should be. It all starts with an extensively fermented Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, glistening with oils and soft to the touch. Just beneath this leaf, a bold yet balanced core of Nicaraguan long-fillers secured by a Nicaraguan binder. This all-Nicaraguan cast of tobaccos strikes up bevy of chewy hearty flavor. Hints of leather, cocoa, nutmeg, toast and roasted nuts wash over the palate, before a long satisfying finish. This may be Alan Rubin's first Nicaraguan puro, but it sure is good.
Nica Puro received a 90-point rating, but we think the score should have been much higher. Regardless, here's the write-up: "Rich notes of leather and raisin make this dark and oily cigar a solid performer. The draw imparts copious amounts of lush, flavorful smoke."
