Verdadero Organic is an excellent cigar consisting of 100% organically grown fillers hailing from the virgin soils at the base of the Mombacho Volcano in Granada, Nicaragua. No pesticides, chemicals, or flavor enhancers have ever been used during the creation of this blend, while the soil that produces this tobacco has never been utilized to grow any other vegetation.
Granada is one of The Americas's oldest cities and is considered the capital of Central America. Settled nearly 500 years ago, the city is nestled between Lake Nicaragua and the Mombacho Volcano. At the base of the volcano, just outside the bustling city, there is a beautiful tobacco field planted in virgin soil. This nutrient rich area is where the tobacco is grown for Verdadero, a brand boasting hearty, 100% organic filler that is triple fermented to perfection.
Verdadero Organic is truly unique, offering flavors different from all other cigars on the market, including a distinct raisin aroma. The cigar is balanced, utilizing an Indonesian Sumatra binder bound by a seamless Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, which allows the unique flavors of the organic filler to dominate the palate. The blend is smooth, mellow, and mild to medium-bodied with a perfect draw that produces a creamy smoke. There are no other cigars similar to Verdadero, guaranteed.
Each box comes complete with a certificate of authenticity signed by Silvio Reyes certifying only organic leaves are used inside the bunch.
Cigar.com Customer Brandon H. thoroughly enjoys Verdadero and becomes inspired to travel over 2,000 miles to see the organic leaf for himself.
It's summertime and the living is easy, cigars are burning, and I'm in my element. I find myself reaching for cigars I can enjoy all day long and Verdadero fits the bill. Smooth and mild yet very flavorful, I find the true tobacco taste pefectly compliments the BBQ's, beers, and beach trips of summer months. ¡Viva Verdadero! Which, of course, is Spanish for "Dude, Verdadero kicks ass!"
Toro (6" x 50) Excellent flavor from start to finish without any type of harsh or acidic nuances noticeable. The tobacco is well aged and truly offers a unique flavor not experienced in any other cigar. The raisin aroma begins with the first inch and slowly builds throughout, without increasing in strength. Perfect balance.
Torpedo (6" x 52) Offered a perfect burn and draw from start to finish with many changes in flavor throughout. Definitely tasted a bit more complex than the other sizes, with its unique raisin flavor disappearing for half inches at a time. Perfect 60 minute smoke with an excellent, sweet yet potent finish.
Robusto (5" x 50) Burned slightly hot and did feature some soft spots that were not welcomed. The flavor, however, was excellent. It offered a ton of peaty nuances mixed with that same raisin flavor Verdadero Organic is known, but in a more robust presentation. The finish was slightly off, with sweeter nuances being masked by a slightly harsh, peppery flavor not nearly as noticeable in the other sizes.
