For the cigar enthusiast who enjoys theirs dark and robust but wants to avoid the super-pricey, take a look at La Herencia Cubana Oscuro Fuerte.
The first thing you see is a dark chocolate-colored Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper. Beneath is a collection of long-filler ligeros from the three best-known growing regions of Nicaragua, rolled into a firm and feisty package. There are notes of expresso, cocoa and wood, with some spice and a dark fruit sweetness on the finish. We'll stack this one up against most maduro/oscuro cigars at twice the price, or more.
