Wrapper: San Andreas Maduro
The Nica Libre 1990 is a well constructed box press cigar with a brown maduro wrapper. The band is very similar to the band on the Padron Anniversario series,of which this is an obvious copycat. The draw is consistently perfect on these cigars, providing for lots of smoke.
A medium to full body taste of coffee, black pepper, and chocolate creaminess make this a very enjoyable lunch smoke with a nice nic kick.. My smoking buddy was a little put off by the smoke smell but the taste was enjoyable. After an even burn and into the 2nd to 3rd inch a bit of an unneveness occurred but after a few minutes the burn corrected and remained even thru to the last 1 inch.. All in all a great smoke and a worthy contender.
