Drew Estate Cigar Co. Nica Rustica
This was a beast of a cigar with a dark and oily wrapper. The pre-light nose was pungent with hay and earthy tones. A nice draw pulled thick clouds of smoke onto the palate that delivered strong flavors. Refined leather and roasted coffee were not expected from the pre-light or cold draw, but were definitely present. The finish had a hint of cayenne spiciness that did well to cut through some of the richness. Medium in strength that reached into full toward the end.
