21 Dec #1 NICARAGUA – OLMEC CLARO TORO
The Olmec is an homage to the Heart Land of the Olmecs, which is currently the Mexican states of Veracruz, Tabasco, and San Andrés Tuxtla. The blend is made of Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from the Esteli and Jalapa valleys, aged for three years. They are made in Nicaragua at the AJ Fernández Cigar Factory. The finish is phenomenal. The flavor profile is rich and satisfying.
The opening delivers a blast of leather, roasted coffee beans, and earth, together with a rich peppery vein. Then walnut and seasoned wood are added. In the middle third, the cigar adds a rich balsamic vein that refreshes the smoke. In the finale, some piquant peaks complete the ample and structured flavor profile.
