Nat Cicco Cuban Legends Maduro
It should go without saying that these are not meant to compete with the premium blends that reach the top of the charts. Instead, these are the core well-priced cigars that Nat Cicco has been making for decades. Decent tobacco and solid construction mark Cuban Legends as the type of everyday cigar that most people can buy a box of without any shame whatsoever. They’re perfect for commuting with, relaxing on a job site at lunch, or any other situation that doesn’t call for a fancy smoke.
Nat Cicco Cuban Legends Maduro cigars are a “Cuban sandwich” style of cigar, where intact long-filler leaf is combined with chopped short leaf to make a blend that uses every available portion of tobacco that’s fit for blending into a cigar. In this case, it’s Nicaraguan topped with a nice Habano rosado Maduro wrapper.
Omar Ortez is the blender who put this one together to offer a humble profile of earth, leather, and spice. It’s not going to wow anyone, but of course, it’s not meant to. This is a working man’s stick, blended to bring good tobacco into a pleasant smoke that doesn’t break the bank. Ortez has been in the business for ages (maybe you’ve smoked his Warlock blend?), so he’s a great choice to figure out exactly how to find the proper leaf to make this one work.
For those who think a bargain blend is less work – you might be surprised. With the best leaf in the world, making a great blend can sometimes be easier. For a stick like the Nat Cicco Cuban Legends Maduro, you can’t just throw anything together and get a satisfying cigar – you have to know what you’re doing to make everything blend the right way. Fortunately, that nicely fermented Habano Rosado Maduro really works with the Nicaraguan tobacco to strike the right basic note to make this one worthy of a box purchase to store in a work truck, tackle box, or even boat (if you went broke on one of those, you need to save where you can, right?)
It’s a basic stick to smoke any time and toss whenever you’re done, with no guilt.
