Nica Libre Potencia

Potencia takes the Nica Libre name to new heights. A small-batch, Nicaraguan beauty from the Oliva family with a whole lot of character.

Potencia is the latest offering from Nica Libre....and it’s superb. It’s a small-batch, Nicaraguan beauty with character in spades. Carefully crafted in the Oliva factory with a dark, reddish-hued Habano Sun Grown wrapper and a robust blend of well-aged Nicaraguan ligeros, Potencia brings a deep, complex flavor. Powerful yet smooth and refined – and loaded with layers of coffee, spices, earth, and dark chocolate overtop a rich tobacco core. It’s a bit pricier than the original, but well worth the coin. A very limited production item – when they’re in stock, act expeditiously.

Hard Body!
I ordered a box of the Grand Robustos & reviewing them ROTT, was not as impressed as I am five weeks later. Perhaps I was a bit hasty, since a mere five weeks of rest has turned this solidly packed, mid strength flavor-bomb into a hit with my palate. The Reddish hued sun grown wrapper is divine. Hearty Nicaraguan long fillers are crammed into a proprietary binder to complete a package that could cost three times the tiny amount I paid for my box. These are just plain old Oliva good, with AJ Fernandez overtones thrown in. A pedigree that belies their reduced price. Oaky, floral notes, tiptoe around lite pepper & even lighter spices. Smoother rather than stronger, a true mid range blend that even us die hard fullheads can appreciate. I would love these if they were box pressed to make their 54 ring gauge girth a bit more controllable. They stretch the limits of my comfort zone in heftiness, but would be just right for those who prefer a thick shank end in their mouths. Construction is bonkers. They withstand my constant chewing easily & remain intact throughout a sixty minute burn time. Even Diesel & Man-O-War come up a little short in this critical chew test area. Grab a box, if you can find them, since they are being discontinued, rest them deep in your humidor for a good long while. Then enjoy a great vitola, that can stand toe to toe with your five dollar mid-sticks, knowing you have about one third of that invested. 90/100

Nica Libre Potencia Torpedo
What can I say but great! I only smoke the strongest cigars and this one fills the bill. Strong, smooth and exquisitely flavorable. One of my mainstays.

AJ Fernandez & Oliva Cigars present Nica Libre Potencia
I got my hands on a box of these very solid & robust vitolas for an additional 45% off of the already low sale price advertised here. At that incredibly low price point, it would be hard to find a more cost efficient way to satisfy my full bodied addiction. Make no mistake. These are uber full bodied treats that will quench most any appetite for strength & complexity. Layers of spice, pepper & an underlying earthy, woodsy mix attacks your senses, coats your palate & gives you a queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach. In a good way though. My one complaint is that it doesn't come in a corona size. Be prepared to have one of the hardest caps you have ever experienced, clenched between your teeth & stretching your jaw muscles to the limit. Beyond that one minor problem, be prepared to be blown away, with one of AJ Fernandez's boldest, nastiest concoctions to date. At the ridiculously low price I paid for them, I consider Potencia a big-time keeper. I will have a few stowed away in readiness for those times when I want a 90 minute full flavored adventure. Although not as endearing to me as the original Nica Libre blend, Potencia still gets a solid 90/100 rating & scores another hit for the torcedors at Oliva Cigars.

I love this cigar! Got a couple of singles...and it was a surprisingly good stick with a flavorful full body. I just picked up another fiver and can't wait for them to come off the truck! No buyer remorse here!
