We’re all searching for nirvana in some shape or form, that’s true. No, not the band....I'll just end it there. I’m talking about that state of joy that only the puff of a good cigar can deliver. Luckily for us, Drew Estate rose to the challenge yet again with Nirvana Cameroon Selection.
If this release doesn't have you excited, you should probably check your pulse. Pronto. But if you're one of the wise, prepare for a Drew Estate cigar unlike any that have come before it. Carefully crafted in Drew Estate's Nicaraguan fortress, utilizing a bevy of rich, unique tobaccos, all the ducks are in a row for a highly satisfying handmade. For brawn, Nicaraguan long-fillers from the fertile, lush soils of Esteli and the Jalapa Valley were hand-selected. In the flavor department, a premium African Cameroon wrapper and hearty San Andres binder take the reins. The result? A spicy-sweet flavor bomb that keeps on delivering the goods till the very end. It seems fans of Drew Estate like to argue over which cigar is king. I'm not here to answer that. But one thing is for sure, Nirvana Cameroon Selection deserves to be thrown into the mix.
Nirvana received a well-deserved '91' rating, noting: "The lush draw of this belicoso starts lightly with leafy, olive-like notes but warms to develop plenty of rich coffee bean, nuttiness and sweet cedar."
Another great blend from Drew Estates. A nice full bodied smoke with plenty of character. Had my first one with a glass of Glen 18 and I gotta say I'd recommend this stick to anyone who enjoys a cigar with a glass of scotch. Well done Drew Estate!
