The Nicaragua is an amped up fuller-bodied version of the original Casa de Garcia line. Coming from Altadis, the same crew that gives us popular brands like Romeo y Julieta and Montecristo, this is a highly-affordable option that doesn't skimp on flavor. Utilizing Nicaraguan, Columbian, and Broadleaf filler and boasting a wrapper and binder from Nicaragua, this cigar delivers a robust medium to full-bodied experience with notes of leather, coffee and cedar.
“Tried the Gordo, and was very impressed. A full-bodied smoke, with delicious flavor, nice white ash, and burns very evenly. Can't ask for much more in a cigar, and these are very good!!!

“ABsolutely a great cigar for the price. Smells amazing, lots of smoke, and for just over $1 a great cigar, especially for the "Give away Humidor" that you still would enjoy smoking yourself.”

“Have smoked a few of the Corona size and these are FULL bodied to me...nothing near medium. Burn is even. Don't smoke these on an empty stomach. Tried one first thing in the morning and felt queasy in the pit of my stomach about half way through. Hint of sweetness on the tongue. Good value for the price and if you smoke them at the right time....after a good meal.”

“I got a bundle of the Toro size and tried them- was not impressed with the flavor, so I stuck them in the bottom of my humidor with the other pariahs to see if they'd get better. I finally tried another one last night (three months later) and was struck by how much better they are- much smoother and more pleasant. I find them medium bodied and tasty. I expect another month and they'll be just right. If you can afford to age these a bit they are a good deal.”

“I ordered a couple of bundles of the Churchill size and naturally tried one right off the truck. These are going to require some serious humidor time. The first couple of sticks I handled had a soft, spongy feel for most of the length and a harder, almost plugged area near the cap. The draw--again, off the truck--was pretty hard. Not a great-tasting stick yet, either. I'll try another in about a month or so, until then they're going to need to rest for a while.”
“Smoked several bundles of these. A great value! Have not felt the need to 'age them' in the humidor, nor have I found any plugged stogies in the bunch. No, these are not going to replace my weekend C.A.O fix, but out working on the car, or driving to work, these things fit the bill.”

“I've been looking for a cheap every day smoke that won't break the bank. I came across these and decided to try them. I bought the corona size and when they came in I smoked one right away and I was impressed.... Notes of earth and coffee with a slight sweetness, great cigar. I did have a couple of them that had some burn issues but hey for about $23.00 for 20 I'm not complaining. I will definitely buy more. Thanks CI!”
