Hand-crafted in Nicaragua, Nica Libre is a veritable candy bar. This blend showcases an aged combination of Nicaraguan long-fillers secured within a Habano binder, inside dark and oily, positively resplendent San Andres maduro wrapper. A classic maduro experience: rich, hearty, and silky smooth. Deep notes of coffee and earth smack the palate in balanced fashion, leaving behind a bold, somewhat peppery aftertaste that lingers long on the palate. A hint of dark chocolate is present during the slow burn, completing an eventful and enjoyable medium-bodied cigar. One of the finest values in a Nicaraguan handmade maduro that you'll find on the market today.
Though I am not a big fan of box pressed cigars, these came at the right price via the Daily Deal. Very nicely constructed with a Goldilocks draw. The Maduro/Habano combination of wrapper and binder makes for a unique flavor that for me was very enjoyable. An above average smoke for the price paid.

An amazing budget AJ stick!
Aug 17, 2015
Smoked one of these yesterday that had a tight draw. It was not producing smoke and had trouble staying lit. Rather than give up I used my cutter to lop off about an inch of length from the foot, mentally scolding the bonchero from afar. Afteward, BAM, exactly as the great AJ Fernandez intended! Thick billowing smoke. Notes of coffee, mocha, and superbly aged and cured tobacco. Absolutely stellar. The remainder of the truncated stick was 100% top shelf, to the degree that the minor surgery was totally forgiven. A masterwork of tobacco blending and aging. Anything AJ produces is worth your time and money, making this stick an excellent choice if looking for a flavorful budget AJ Fernandez cigar. Buy them! Removed 1 star due to the construction.

My wife and I love to have a Dirty Martini and a Cigar at night. Of all the cigars we have smoked, the Nica Libre Corona is our favorite. It is mild, easy draw and great taste.
