Nicarao Especial tastes like it sounds - delicious! But you don't have to take my word for it, just glance at the recipe at hand. On the outside awaits a golden Habano wrapper hailing from the Jalapa valley, rich and brimming with character. This scrumptious leaf hugs a long-filler recipe of Nicaragua's finest ligeros, hand-selected for their well-rounded and flavorful body. This bold combination yields medium to full-bodied smoke bursting with strong notes of wood, spices, nuts, and a hint of roasted cocoa. Well-balanced, and exceptionally made, the Nicarao Especial is the new face of boutique Nicaraguan cigars.
Nicarao has always produced great tobaccos, but their cigars take quite some time to mellow out.
In this regard, the "Exclusivo" series is the most accomodating line with the least amount of harshness. A solid medium+ cigar, it turns into a creamy intensity of rich chocolate and espresso with a little bit of age. Magnificent performance, incredibly tasty. The asking price is steep, so watch for deals or auctions!
