Nat Cicco Cuban Legends Natural
For those used to chart-topping premiums, this is a different kind of cigar. Instead of being made with all long-filler tobacco, this cigar is made “Cuban sandwich” style. This means that the long-filler is complemented with a short chopped leaf. It’s a way of avoiding waste in a cigar factory while making use of good tobacco that would otherwise not get used. Sometimes it’s the trimmings that are chopped away during the rolling process, and other times it’s simply an unaesthetic or otherwise odd leaf that gets rejected by quality control, finding its way into budget cigars like the Nat Cicco Cuban Legends Natural.
Waste not, want not!
The filler is Nicaraguan tobacco that provides a nice spice and cedar flavor profile. The wrapper is a different story. This is still a quality wrapper leaf that forms the “face” of the stogie. In this case, it’s Ecuadorian Sumatra bringing a ton of that special flavor to the blend, almost adding something citrusy to this one.
Omar Ortez is the man behind the blend, and he had his work cut out for him, here. Instead of getting the fancy premium leaf to work with, he got what was left and was told to make the best cigar he could with it. We think he did a great job, especially for the price. He’s been in the Nicaraguan cigar industry for ages, so he’s definitely a capable man for the job. You may be familiar with his work on the Warlock blend? If not, take this opportunity to meet a man who makes great everyday cigars that people rely on to offer something satisfying in an affordable package.
This is a humble, simple blend to enjoy any time of day or night.
