Default Nestor Miranda Selection Dominicano Oscuro Robusto Grande

Nestor Miranda Selection Dominicano Oscuro Robusto Grande - 5.5 X 54. Wrapper -
Dominican Oscuro, Binder - Nicargua, Filler - Nicaragua. This is a very well
balanced and complex cigar that is slightly to the right of medium bodied.

Initial taste of dry oak & leather which quickly becomes a sweet cream, leather,
oak and an underlying spice.

As I continued through the cigar, flavors of sweet cream, leather, spice and oak
remained but now I was getting some notes of nuts as well.

The last third revealed even more complexity. In addtion to the sweet cream,
leather, oak & the underlying spice, I also noticed a consistent earthiness and
some notes of vanilla every now and then. Slight hint of rum flavor as well. Long
finish after each draw of sweet cream and leather.

Construction & burn were good - the wrapper did get a slight crack towards the end
and the burn had to be corrected twice, but that was it. The draw however, was
perfect. Price point on this vitola is approx. $7.50. I have to say that this is
another fantastic, complex and well balanced Nestor Miranda cigar that I once again
have to recommend trying.
