A Casa de Garcia with more muscle.
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.
These are just dang decent budget cigars. Make sure you get the BLUE label ones of Casa De Garcia, the Red/White ones are rather plain-bland tasting. I smoke these when I'm LOW on dough, but too spoiled to settle for....mixed filler/sandwich type.... units!
Great bundle cigar. Good construction, good flavor and ok strength. Gonna let them rest for a few months and think they'll be a lot better. Smoked 4 and ordered another bundle. (Corona)
My bundle of coronas came today and I tried one. It was a little tight near the head but that seemed to lessen later in. Nice even burn, clean wrapper and the ash hangs on for dear life. It's best feature is the taste, which I compare to A/B Sungrown- delicious- and it stayed good to the last inch! These are worth more than C.I. is asking and I'll be ordering more.
There is not a better cigar at this price!
Maybe not the prettiest, maybe the draw is off once in a while. Even my wife of 19 years has flaws, but there is no way I'm giving her up. Even when a Casa de Garcia shows her flaws. There is no denying that these cigars, made on the same tables as the Montecristo are nothing less than a smokers dream. Maybe I'd like them more if they charged me 3-5 bucks a stick? Yes us humans can be stupid. Well I am here to tell ya's, Do not miss out on giving any of the Casa de Garcia's a rotation in your Humi...it will be your loss.
Came quickly! Thanks CI!
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!
Just love the new Casa de Garcia. Very well constructed and a great flavor and price. Keep em coming.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Not bad for the price.
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!!!
