Daniel Expert Picks: After Dinner Powerhouses Expert Pick

A personal favorite, this cigar's dark, oily Habano wrapper is brimming with premium ligero fillers. The first quarter of this cigar strikes your palate with pepper, but opens up nicely to notes of oak with spicy and sweet cream nuances—an unforgettable cigar.

Drew Estate Undercrown Shade is a Nicaraguan-made gem which sports a silky Connecticut Shade wrapper. Rich with a velvety creaminess that stays with you throughout, this cigar has notes of cedar, earth, and black pepper. Undercrown Shade is a shining example of a medium-bodied cigar.

Before this review, I enjoyed Oliva cigars on occasion, but now I find myself in love with the Oliva Serie 'G' Maduro. Its dark, oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and Nicaraguan long-fillers reward my palate with a slightly nutty profile and notes of earthiness, fruit, cocoa, and coffee!

A dark, oily Habano wrapper blended with Nicaraguan fillers creates tons of flavor in this personal favorite. Tasting notes are consistent from foot to finish, with cocoa, black pepper, earthiness, and a hint of sweet tobacco. Medium to full-bodied with a host of flavor, Nica Libre 25th is a must-try!

One of my favorites, the Nicaraguan box-pressed Oliva Serie ‘G’ Maduro, sports a dark and oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. I found that it pairs perfectly with a deep-ambered brandy. The palate is rewarded with a slightly nutty profile accompanied by notes of dried sweet fruits, cocoa, and coffee.

Macanudo Café is fantastic for anyone who appreciates a cigar that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. It has a consistent burn and draw with a rich and smooth profile that is never overpowering. This cigar leaves a clean finish on the palate with nutty notes, earthiness, hints of coffee, and cream.

This 90+ rated CAO is a one-of-a-kind blend packed with Italian, Nicaraguan, and Peruvian long-fillers. It's wrapped with a dark chocolate, oily Habano leaf. This first draw surprised me when strong notes of pepper hit my palate, but then opened up with dark chocolate, earth, peat, leather, and spice. All of these flavors melded together beautifully.

Enclave uses an oily, Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper, binder leaf from Cameroon, and a delicious blend of Nicaraguan fillers. Hints of chocolate, cedar, cinnamon, and a creamy cashew note create one wonderful, medium to full-bodied blend. The finish adds a peppery kick to a premium that’s definitely worth adding to your collection.

This out-of-this-world blend features a three country mix of premium fillers draped in a dark and oily Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Consistent with an impeccable burn and draw, this premium is balanced yet full of complex notes of pepper, progressing into a creaminess accompanied by hints of vanilla and cocoa.
