This cigar was assessed in depth on Cigar Coop.
2014 marks the 25th anniversary for Miami Cigar and Company. To commemorate this occasion, the company has released a pair of limited edition cigars from made from the company’s two leading manufacturing partners. One cigars has was produced at La Aurora Cigars and is called the Miami Cigar and Company 25th Anniversary Dominican Republic. The other comes from My Father Cigars and is called the Miami Cigar and Company 25th Anniversary Nicaragua. The two cigars are each packaged together in a commemorative humidor with each cigar in an individual coffin box. The cigars also become the first cigars by the company to be branded as “Miami Cigar and Company”. Today we take a look at the Miami Cigar and Company 25th Anniversary Nicaragua.
This cigar started out a bit slow. It had a blast of pepper and then had nots of cedar and earth emerge. It was actually in the second half where a nice chocolate sweetness emerged. Still this had most of the feelings of a medium strength, medium-bodied earthy Nicaraguan cigar. While it wasn’t a cigar that had me doing handstands with flavor, it wasn’t a bad cigar either.
This is a classic case of a cigar scoring nicely (89 on Cigar Coop), but when it comes to buying power (Stogie Geeks rating), it falls. Unfortunately the price point does hurt this cigar and that is a negative. This was rated as a “try one”.
