Show the Don some respect
When the Don speaks up, you best pay attention. Otherwise, you’ll miss one of the newest, best Nicaraguan handmades to pass through CI HQ in quite some time. Don Tomas Nicaragua is a beefy new offering from one of the classic names in the cigar industry. Those who have been around might recognize that this is a more affordable option that some of the other Don Tomas boxes — that’s just a plus. The cigar is just as delicious as its pricier brethren, ensuring maximum dollar to herf pleasure ratio.
Handmade in Esteli, the cigar capital of Nicaragua, the smooth, shade grown Jalapa wrapper on this one is going to have you testing your willpower. I normally like to let a cigar rest in the humidor for a bit, but no one can resist lighting one of these up immediately when you crack the box. And you’ll be glad you did. Sweet, nutty aromas are mixed with wood and a leather note that’s full-flavored without being overpowering. Don Tomas Nicaragua is easily an everyday go-to.
