Sometimes, words come up short.
La Herencia Cubana CORE may well be the best "sleeper" in years. Available in four shapes, all box-pressed, these Nicaraguan gems present an understated appearance, but an incredible amount of flavor.
The majority of the tobaccos in La Herencia Cubana CORE are ligeros, including the silky, dark Ecuadorian Habano sun-grown wrapper. The binder is also Habano, but this one coming from Nicaragua. The long-fillers include tobaccos from Nicaragua, Honduras and the US. Upon first light, two things become apparent - lush, creamy smoke and a healthy dose of spice. There are also notes of earth, cocoa, oak and toast, but a pepperiness lingers throughout the long, luxurious experience. This is a cigar to be savored when the time is right, as it will grab your attention and won't let go.
