New World Oscuro by AJ Fernandez (Robusto $8.79)
New World Oscuro features a blend of 100% fully aged Cuban-seed Nicaraguan tobaccos, covered by an oily coal black wrapper. More than just another Nicaraguan puro, these premium long filler tobaccos were harvested from Jalapa, Condega, and Estelí— the three top growing regions in the country. You'll enjoy this dark leaf blend without the heavy nicotine and spice. It’ll surprise you how smooth an Oscuro leaf can be and at an excellent price for the robusto, toro, and double corona. Tasting notes include earth, wood, exspresso, dark chocolate, and black pepper with a sweet, creamy finish.
-La Aroma de Cuba Connecticut by Ashton (Corona $7.92)
La Aroma de Cuba Connecticut is a Jose ’Don Pepin’ Garcia and Jaime Garcia blend. Hand-crafted in Nicaragua at Pepin Garcia's My Father factory, this cigar sports a gorgeous Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. It is relatively mild in strength, but rich in aroma and flavor. La Aroma de Cuba Connecticus has complexity and reinvorgates my curiosity for blends that feature Ecuador Connecticut.
-Espinosa Habano by Eric Espinosa (#4 Robusto $9.62)
The Espinosa Habano is the namesake cigar of brand owner Erik Espinosa. First launched in 2012, it was rebranded in 2015. The new look and blend created a richer and smoother experience. The Expinosa Habano is a blend of hearty Nicaraguan tobacco combined with a lush Ecuador Habano. You may discover tasting notes of leather, pepper, cedar, and cocoa, and backing spices with a creamy, long finish.
-Serie G by Oliva (Figurado $8.13)
This Nicaraguan beauty is made from Habano long-leaf fillers, a Cuban-seed Habano binder, and an African Cameroon wrapper. It’s simple, elegant and inviting. To satisfy the palate, this medium-bodied handmade cigar features a warm cedar flavor complemented by notes of coffee and a subtle nuttiness. Using aged Nicaraguan tobaccos for binder and filler, these beautifully crafted and affordably priced smokes are available in your choice of a silky, golden-brown shade grown, or a dark and oily Broadleaf wrapper.
