On this week’s episode of Weekly Cigar Roundup, Nick smokes some fantastic cigars and attends a wedding. On Maduro Monday, Nick smokes a RoMa Craft CroMagnon. This cigar uses a stunning dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. With flavor notes of dark roast coffee, spice and caramel, this cigar is a great way to start your week.
On Tuesday, Nick takes a trip to Italy, figuratively speaking, with the CAO Italia. Part of the CAO World Series, the CAO Italia is a medium-bodied cigar using tobaccos for Italy, Nicaragua, Peru, and Honduras. On Wednesday, Nick smoked the Gispert Intenso. A collaboration between the Grupo de Maestros from AUSA and AJ Fernandez, this cigar has flavor notes of chocolate, spice, and leather.
On Thursday night, as the Connecticut Broadleaf trend continues, Nick turns to the Mr. Brownstone from Esteban Carreras. A medium to full bodied cigar, this cigar is great to have with a glass of whiskey neat or on the rocks. The flavor notes of this cigar compliment the spiciness of the scotch to have a clean smooth finish.
For years, Plasencia has produced many cigars for a lot of Cigar Manufacturers. Now the company has started producing its own. Nick smoked the Plasencia Alma del Campo, the 2nd version of the Alma series. This Nicaraguan puro has a wrapper from the Jalapa region, as the filler and binder tobaccos are from the Esteli, Jalapa, Ometepe, and Condega.
On Nick’s big wedding day, not his actual wedding, he smoked the limited edition Crowned Heads Court Reserve. Using a San Andres Mexican wrapper, this medium to full bodied cigar has flavor notes of pepper, earth, and coffee.
Lastly, on Sunday, Nick smoked the prestigious Davidoff Yamasa. The Yamasa has tobaccos specifically from the Yamasa region. The Yamasa region in the DR is known for its rich soil which gives the cigar flavors of earth, nut, and cedar. If you haven’t tried this Davidoff this is one you shouldn’t pass up.
