Not the hottest girl at the prom, but she's got a great personality.
Nica Rustica has a kind of, well, rustic appearance and it comes in paper wrapped bundles, but once you've lit one, you'll forget all about the looks.
Featuring a pigtail cap and a folded-over foot (for a real blast of flavor on the initial light), these dark and oily sticks are graced with an espresso-colored Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Underneath is a San Andres Negro binder and long-fillers from Esteli and Jalapa, where some of Nicaragua's boldest tobaccos come from. This is a robust cigar which shows notes of coffee, cocoa and lots of lively spice. Buckle up, because this is one tasty ride.
