Spotlight Brand: Nica Libre Potencia

Nica Libre Potencia

A potent concoction from Nica Libre.

Nica Libre's full-bodied counterpart. This sleek, oily, and complex Nicaraguan concoction hails from the Oliva factory, and overloads the palate with incredible amounts of flavor. Fans of full-bodied, super-premium cigars should find solace in Potencia. You'll be surprised just how smooth this blend actually is, especially since the initial flavor presents a bold, zesty bouquet that transitions into a full-tilt, full-bodied character that's ultra-satisfying. 

The Nica Libre brand underwent a packaging facelift, but still remains the same great blend handcrafted in Nicaragua. Sporting a Habano Sun Grown wrapper that conceals an all-ligero blend of Nicaraguan long-leaves, this blend expels an earthy aroma while sweet flavors of coffee and cedar intermingle. Expect thick, creamy smoke from start to finish that remains semi-complex—constantly changing in flavor from start to finish. Every aficionado should consider this cigar - exceptionally flavorful and an easy choice for a hearty, go-to cigar.

Q & A: Beach Cigars

Q.
Why doesn't my cigar taste as good at the beach?

4/13/11 | by JT of Hartford, CT

A.
Due to the wind and heavy salty air, a cigar's aroma can be difficult to detect, making the flavors seem faint. Most of your taste receptors are found in your nose, believe it or not. Your nose and palate work together to determine taste, which is why we always recommend cycling a cigar's smoke through your nose, without inhaling of course. This is a hard process to learn, but incredibly valuable for cigar tasting.
