Carefully handcrafted in Esteli, Nicaragua, Ave Maria utilizes a flawless Habano sun-grown wrapper from Ecuador overtop a well-aged blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers to create an extremely balanced, flavorful, and refined experience. It's medium-bodied and smooth throughout, but brimming with rich notes of earth, leather, spices, and sweet tobacco - all delivered in elegant fashion. A truly complete cigar on every level. The 5.5"x55 Lionheart size comes expertly constructed into a thick, juicy box-pressed vitola.
Not a great cigar. Had one with 3 fingers of Angels Envy. Should have gone with Old Overholt for this one. Completely unremarkable. Like one of those obnoxious friends you had when you were a kid. O.k to hang out with for awhile, but then you just wanted to smack him so he would go home. Not a great burn, wrapped too loose. Couldn't wait for it to be over. I'll pass next time. I have two left, so I'll give them to someone I don't like.
