Nica Libre Esteli Especial

For a limited time, enjoy FREE shipping on your entire order with the purchase of any qualifying Nica Libre box!

One Nicaraguan you won’t want to miss.

Nica Libre Esteli Especial honors the current cigar capital of the world — Esteli, Nicaragua. While there are plenty of places crafting premium blends, check out any Top 25 list or industry awards, and I’m sure you’ll find that Esteli is the home base for the industry’s current best and brightest. This latest offering from Nica Libre also proves that, unlike what some brands would have you believe, you don’t have to shell out half your paycheck to be able to afford a top-notch cigar.

Hailing from the renowned Joya de Nicaragua factory in Nicaragua, Esteli Especial is one of the most flavor-filled blends to cross my desk in quite some time. And when you consider how many delicious blends land in our offices daily, that’s really saying something. Coming dressed in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over a Sumatra binder, this blend of Nicaraguan and Pennsylvania long-fillers has a hearty dose of ligero thrown in to kick things up. A solid medium to full-bodied, this hearty blend plays host to a plethora of tantalizing flavors including spice, earth, leather, cream, and cedar. Complex and balanced, Nica Libre Esteli Especial proves you don’t need to dip into your 401k to enjoy an uber-flavorful Nicaraguan cigar.

Perhaps the best of the Nica Libre line of cigars.
You can't miss with any of the Nica Libre line of cigars. The Esteli Especial is my favorite of the bunch. I managed to pick up a box of 15 Robustos via the "Make an Offer" section on the website and am quite pleased with the result. The Esteli Especial has an excellent taste and burn along with a decent draw. It is a bit more mellow that the Silver version. Very enjoyable. I will fire up another one tonight. I need to get to the bottom of the box so I can reorder . . .

Wow!!!
I've only had one so far. If the rest of them are half as good as the first, I will be very happy. Burned great, tasted great. I will be buying more.

Nice treat
This stick has become a go to in my rotation. You can't go wrong with this selection. I dare you to find a better value for a daily stick.

Bonus
I got the cigars as part of a sampler and was pleasantly surprised. I like the flavor but the burn is most important to me. I rate a cigar on how it burns and this on was right on.

Pleasantly surprised
Bought these because it offered free shipping as a package with others. Know when I like a smoke without all the nuance of flavors which I never understood, pepper,leather,or any other flavors you can think of. The cigar held together,good draw,nice ash,and a medium strength 💪. What more could I ask for.

Awesome smoke!
I have seen Nica Libre in the catalog and emails for a long time. Finally decided to give them a shot. I wish I bought more than one box! For the money these taste way better than many cigars that cost more.

A civilized Nicaraguan Puro
The construction on the torpedo is quite exce. I had zero issues with the draw and burn. The blend is the icing on the cake...medium to full but with nice smooth notes of wood, leather, and pepper. I'll be ordering more for sure.

Contruction issues? Otherwise super tasty.
Seriously tasty. A nice smooth blend of cedar and a bit of a leather taste all the way through. A great smoke. Mine, I'll give it the behavior of the doubt, was SUPER tight but still good enough to take a food draw and had some construction issues. Perhaps it wasn't sitting in my humidifier well perhaps I cut it too deep but the head peeled right away however despite these bumps it was an enjoyable smoke and I liked it very much.

Good value full cigar.
Got these on sale at Daily Joe. Would rate the filler blend of Nicaraguan and U.S. PA broadleaf as full. Good taste but not complex, for full heads. Good value for the price. The only knock on these is when I tried to use a punch, the whole cap comes off on the couple I have tried. Better off with a straight cut. The burn is even, and stays lit. Holds a good ash.

A very special cigar.
Nica Libre Especial is a great tasting cigar. Beautiful construction and great draw. Lots of flavor from start to finish.
