Wait no more because the Cu-Avana Intensus is here. This is a powerfully full-bodied and extraordinarily flavorful beaut rising from the cigar capital of Nicaragua: Esteli, specifically Nestor Plasencia. The blend begins with a dark and redolent Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper grown from Habano-seed. Thick and oily, this leaf is a marvel to look at and bubbles over with flavor. The true power of this cigar is derived from its long-leaf combination: an extensively aged, all-ligero mixture of tobaccos from Peru and Nicaragua. Cu-Avana Intensus erupts on the palate leaving a hearty, spicy core with an underpinning of dense, oaky, earthy notes and a long, satisfying finish. Full-bodied from start to finish, the flavors evolve throughout the slow burn, becoming increasingly intense right down to the nub.
