Nicarao Classico - a fine small-batch handmade.
Nicarao Classico is without a doubt one standout cigar, but like my momma used to say, the proof is in the puddin’. And this puddin' sure is good. Each Classico is carefully crafted in Nicaragua, and comes dressed in a Rosado Claro Habano wrapper from the fertile region of Jalapa. This leathery brown leaf melds with a long-filler recipe of Nicaraguan tobaccos, to create a hearty medium-bodied gem. Billows of white smoke complement a well-balanced array of wood, leather, and spices before a toasty tobacco core rounds out this scrumptious handmade. Medium-bodied and lip-smacking from start to finish, the Classico is proof small-batch handmades still reign supreme.
Nicarao Classico received a well-deserved 91-rating noting: "This attractive figurado has an oily brown wrapper and a perfect cap. It has a fine balance of complex flavors, including toasted nuts, wood and cedar. The finish has a hint of caramel and cocoa."
