nestor20thpic2 Hello Puff fans! We have two reviews in store for you today. First, we will look at the Nestor Miranda 20th Anniversary Danno Oscuro. To finish things off, we will take a peek at the smooth, yet tasty Old School Originals Duke.

Nestor Miranda 20th Anniversary Danno Oscuro

As with many anniversary cigars, the Nestor Miranda 20th Anniversary Danno Oscuro is a limited release. Released in mid-2009, the 20th Anniversary only saw 2,000 boxes made, with 1,000 of them being dedicated to the Danno Oscuro blend and 1,000 being of the smoother Rosado variety. The 20th Anniversary celebrated twenty years of business for its creators, Miami Cigar. Don Pepin Garcia is credited with blending these cigars and they are handmade in Esteli, Nicaragua.

The Nestor Miranda20th Anniversary Danno Oscuro measures 7 x 56 in its Double Toro shape. This is the only size offered from the limited edition stick, so hopefully you like larger cigars, or you are out of luck. Its filler is comprised of a blend of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The binder is Nicaraguan too. Topping off the cigar is a Nicaraguan H2000 Oscuro wrapper. The H in H2000 stands for Habano, in case you were wondering. The Danno Oscuro is considered to be full-bodied.

The most noticeable aspect when looking at the cigar is that it has a rich, dark color. This is thanks to its Oscuro wrapper, which translated to English means “dark.” There is a considerable oily sheen that is visible under light, and some veins run throughout the cigar's body. The decorative band near the head is quite attractive, and it shows Nestor Miranda's signature, the Miami Cigar and Co. name, and “20 Aniversario” on the label. The band really stands out with its shiny copper borders, and it is also gray, red, and black in color. Giving the cigar a quick feel, one can notice that it seems to be very firm and well packed. Before lighting, it gives off an earthy scent and a bit of a sweet cold taste.

Once lit, the 20th Anniversary Danno Oscuro is a good performer. It burns evenly for the most part, and produces a solid white ash. The draw is pretty good, although a bit on the firmer side of the spectrum. Not much touching up is needed, but it did have to be re-lit a couple times. Make sure you have plenty of time on your hands when you smoke this stick, because it burns for quite a long time.
