A detailed pre-release assessment of this Cigar was done on Cigar Coop.

The Nimmy D is the second namesake cigar for Nimish Desai. Nimmy D is a nickname that has been given to Desai. Desai is a cousin of Rocky Patel who has been playing an increased role in the company. In 2011, Desai released his first namesake cigar, Thunder by Nimish. The Nimmy D is being branded under the Patel Family brand – which also features cigars by Rocky Patel’s brother Nish.

The Nimmy D starts out with a pepper blast that does not subside quickly. The pepper is joined by notes of earth, chocolate, and raw sugar cane. The spice does recede by the midpoint before making a slight comeback toward the end. Overall, I found this to be a nice flavor profile.

Compared to Desai’s Thunder cigar, the Nimmy D is more dialed back. I assessed this as a medium strength cigar with medium to full-bodied notes.

The construction was a little questionable. I found the burn to require multiple touch-ups and the draw was looser than I preferred. It is worth noting this was a pre-release sample from IPCPR that was smoked.

While I did not assign a rating, I saw a lot of promise with this blend – and its something worth checking out again as it is now hitting retailers.
