I can hear the whispers and moans already, "Those are seconds, they must be crap!" But I say 'Negative, Ghost Rider...' Although I can't tell you exactly where these handmades come from, I can tell you that they are produced at one of the most reputable factories in Nicaragua. In many instances we cannot reveal the specific blend due to manufacturers not wanting their blends being sold for much, much less. Each Nicaraguan Sweets 2nd is teeming with the same long-filler tobaccos, and flavorful wrappers, producing a rich and smooth experience. The kicker with each one of these tasty treats is that they all have a very lightly sweetened cap....that's where the 'Sweets' comes in....adding a slightly different, but pleasant experience.
