(38 Reviews) | Write a review

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. 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. Packaged in a box of 50.

Unique and affordable

Auggie on 03/15/15

A uniquely flavored, affordable stick from Drew Estate. It's become a go-to in my humidor when I want something I know I'll enjoy from start to finish every time.

This is one of my favorite cigars, great construction and perfect burn. It has great smooth flavors of coffee and cocoa with a nice earthy spice. I just can't get enough of these.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on these and I wasn't disappointed when I did. A blast of flavor that calms down slightly after the beginning. Overall a great cigar that delivers powerful flavor.

Rustic!

on 04/14/15

I really enjoy the rustic look of this lots of veins and the tail. About a hour and 45 min smoke time. I got coffee, choclate and wood flavors from this smoke would recommend it to a friend.

Good flavor for the price. I would choose this over liga no. 9 based on price any day of the week. Still a ridiculous amount of smoke production

packs a punch

on 04/16/15

This was full bodied and strong from the start. Not a lot of changes in flavor or depth. I'd smoke it again though. It was consistently big and in your face with flavor and strength

I would smoke these all day every day. The look rough but that is part of the appeal. Great construction, tastes like meaty leather, and great price. Buy them now

another winner from j drew

on 04/16/15

This is another winner from j drew. Not as complex as liga's, this med - full stick stays fairly consistent and is a nice value for the size and price.

Pretty Good!

on 04/16/15

I like this cigar and I'll buy more. For a pretty decent price you get a cigar with great construction and draw and full flavor. This is my favorite of the DE line.

This is one of my favorite budget smokes. It's got chocolate, coffee, and just the right amount of pepper. This toothy stick puts off more smoke than a chimney.

The diamond in the rough of DE.

on 04/17/15

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!

not the best

on 04/17/15

Not a bad smoke but not my favorite. I've had two and both had stems. I hate a tight draw so that ruins it for me

The grandest smoke producer in all the lands. The Nica is a great smoke for the value, get lost in its smoke and enjoy.

feel like a cowboy

on 04/16/15

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!

Not for me but for fans of the undercrown you will like this!

Itsthenoff on 07/24/15

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.

In Your Face

mben342 on 07/22/15

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.

Smokey cigar

Cal on 07/23/15

Like a lot of the stuff drew estate puts out this cigar kicks off a lot of smoke. It's a medium to full body cigar with a dark taste of leather, earth and tobacco. I enjoyed this smoke

One of the best!! Never fails.

Shelbysnakeguy on 07/24/15

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

Relaxing smoke

Chrisb2194 on 07/27/15

Little tricky for me to me to cut but it evened out. Lot easy and wow was there a lot of smoke. Good finish with flavors developing well after normal. Flavors didn't overpower and real nice relaxing smoke.

Nice rustica

Edram13 on 07/31/15

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!

Rock in!

Fantastic budget stick. Tastes similar to a less complex number 9. Worth grabbing and smoking fresh or aged. Again excellent price point.
