El Brujito · 6 × 52 NR50
The Nica Rustica cigar brand was created as a tribute to Estelí, its people, and the amazing leaf that grows there, all of which Jonathan Drew of Drew Estate has described with the phrase con orgullo ("with pride"). Meaning "witch doctor," or to Estelí's locals, "the shaman," El Brujito is the name of the single cigar size within this flavorful Drew Estate line.El Brujito's use of tobacco in ceremonial and medicinal rituals goes back eons, as revealed by a stone carved with his image 6,000 years ago and discovered in Estelí. The symbol of The Shaman now graces each box of Drew Estate's Nica Rustica El Brujito cigars.
Rustic-looking as the brand name implies, and featuring a short, curly pigtail and covered foot, El Brujito is not a pretty cigar...and isn't supposed to be. Its Connecticut broadleaf wrapper is a rusty brown color with visible veins and a somewhat rough and toothy texture. But don't let its appearance fool you; under that unassuming wrapper is the perfect everyday/anytime cigar, and what it lacks in beauty, it makes up for in flavor. Medium to full in body and flawlessly constructed for a perfect burn and easy draw, El Brujito produces volumes of thick, rich smoke, a solid white ash, and a long, luxurious finish.
Please use caution when you smoke this cigar! Once you've puffed it to the nub and still want more, simply put it down and light another. After all, Drew Estate Nica Rustica El Brujito cigars are affordable enough to enjoy as often as you want...and want you will.

Nicara Rustica is a cigar from the folks at the Drew Estate. One of the few that I actually like. I hate their perfume cigars so it's nice to have a nice blend that has some teeth. Delish from the beginning of the cigar to the end.

The diamond in the rough of DE.
This is hands down my Favorite DE cigar. Medium body and a pretty middle of the road strength. Great flavors that change every third, hay, Coffee, chocolate, spice, it's all here. And all for a very reasonable price!
feel like a cowboy
What a smoke! I have enjoyed almost every stick I've had from Drew Estate and this one didn't disappoint! My friend tossed me one when I said I hadn't had one and I went out that day to smoke it. Great flavor, draw, and construction is 'old school' and rugged. The only vitola is the El Brujito and it is not my favorite size but is perfect for this blend. Very cubanesque flavors of cream salt and wood. Love this stick!

This cigar may be perfect. Intense, thick, and in your face. Rich coffee, dark chocolate, and toasted almonds dominate this cigar. Beautiful construction that feels tough enough to hold a truck. Enjoy with espresso or an Irish coffee.
One of the best!! Never fails.

This is the perfect smoke. Medium to full, packs an amazing amount of flavor, and the smoke this thing produces... Wow. Make sure you are in a room with some air movement or you'll be clouded quick

Well what can I say about drew estate? They make great cigars, and this is just one of many! I like this vitola and am exited to try the new ones coming out. The cigar has a sweet nutty taste with a slight spice finish. Has the usual drew estate cigar smoke output, and at the price it's sold at, it's a hell of a deal!

The cigar that is suppose to look... Rustic. The wrapper looks like it has been dyed to be a molted looking dark brown. It is also a huge smoke producer. Big clouds of smoke out of this one. Flavor is ok. Kind of like an Under Crown. Like most DE sticks, packaging and marketing is awesome. The cigar is not awesome but a solid good.

These have my favorite wrapper. Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. It is spicy sweet, rustic in flavor. It's very excellent. I just found that there are no transitions and the flavor remains the same. So at times it can be a boring smoke.

i went to my local B & M looking for Liga Privada, and when they were all out, I disappointedly picked up one of these. I was not disappointed, and like all of Drew Estate smokes, it was quality, comes in cool packaging, and above all, was a great smoke. Since then, I've bought these instead of Liga on more than one occasion.
Not for me but for fans of the undercrown you will like this!

Very earthy and strong. For me this is a little too much earth and not laid back enough for me to enjoy. Also the smoke from the foot is like crazy. the trademark of Drew Estate! Full body drew estate fans will like this one I suppose.

It’s not a perfect smoke, but the Nica Rustica wasn’t intended to be, it says so in the name. What it is is another Drew Estate success. It oozes rich, full-bodied flavor, it carries a small price tag and its flaws are minor. It’s the kind of cigar that could easily become your go to smoke and the one you light up while you’re thinking about which cigar you’re really in the mood for. (Don’t pretend you don’t do that too.) I haven’t bought a box yet, but I have smoked through about half of one. If you’re a fan of Drew Estate’s Liga Privada lines, this one is a no-brainer, it’ll be tough to find more bang for your buck on the shelf right now.
