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.
AJ Fernandez & Oliva Cigars present Nica Libre Potencia
Aug 19, 2015
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.
