Introduced at the RTDA show in 2003, Bahia Blu was well-received due to its craftsmanship and potent, yet balanced character.
Bahia cigars came to light during the cigar boom in the 1990s. Their initial releases consisted of Bahia, Bahia Gold, and Bahia Maduro, all of which were well rated by industry publications. These blends paved the path for the Bahia line, which now contains more than 6 different successful brands.
A Nicaraguan handmade concoction of 6-year-aged fillers stemming from Esteli, Jalapa, and Leon, Bahia Blu is an incredibly smooth blend featuring a Corojo wrapper with 3 years of age. This blend creates a medium-bodied array of pepper with a sweet core of cedar nuances that entertain the palate with a medium finish. In order to create perfect balance, these cigars are aged for at least 180 days in Spanish cedar, allowing all of the complexities from the Nicaraguan tobaccos to properly marry, creating a memorable and enjoyable experience.
Not a bad cigar for the money. More a 3 1/2 rating. Quite flavorful, but not harsh. Only draw back was each stick is rolled very tight, make it difficult to smoke or draw.

When I bought these I was trying to replace a stick that hasnt been available for quite some time. I only picked these because the color of the label is the same. Glad I picked this one. It has a really good burn and has a wonderful flavor. Will be buying more of these in the coming future.
