We have two cigars to review today that hit shelves in 2013, so if you haven’t tried them, you’ll want to keep reading to see what they have to offer.  We’ll get things started with the Davidoff Nicaragua and finish up with the Nat Sherman 1930 Collection.

Davidoff Nicaragua Toro

Davidoff is a brand name that’s definitely associated with premium quality.  And since I’ve been impressed with several Davidoff selections in the past, I just had to give its new “Nicaragua” release a try.  The Davidoff Nicaragua made its debut in NYC at an official global launch party in July, and it hit shelves just a little while later.  What makes the Nicaragua so special?  The fact that it is the first Nicaraguan release from Davidoff.  As if the cigar needed any more hype to get me going, I read that it was ranked as one of the top five cigars ever across different blends during a taste test conducted in Germany.  With that being said, I’m ready to give this puppy a light.

The Davidoff Nicaragua Toro measures 5 ½ x 54.  There are also two other formats in the line: the 3 ¾ x 46 Short Corona and the 5 x 50 Robusto Tubo.  Not surprisingly, this is a Nicaraguan puro, made completely of tobacco from the Central American country.  The filler blend has tobaccos that hail from the fertile Esteli, Condega, and Ometepe regions, while the binder comes from Nicaragua’s Jalapa region.  The wrapper is listed as being of the 10-year Habano Seed Rosado variety. The strength of the Nicaragua is described as medium-bodied.

The Davidoff Nicaragua is one cigar that is definitely worth looking over prior to lighting.  There’s a decent amount of oil the reddish-brown wrapper and some medium-sized veins.  I don’t notice any major imperfections.  The toothy cigar feels firm, and it obviously has a lot of weight to it as well.  The band near the head is the typical Davidoff band that features the company name and logo, bit this time around it is black instead of white.  The band right beneath it displays the Nicaragua moniker over a bronze/black color scheme.  There’s a sweet aroma before lighting and an earthy cold taste.

After finally lighting up this beautiful cigar, the Davidoff Nicaragua burns well.  The draw is good and there’s plenty of smoke.  A couple of re-lights are necessary.  I also need a few minor touch-ups, but other than that, the burn behaves nicely.  The ash is solid and gray in color.
