Nestor Miranda Collection Habano (Green) Robusto

Here is another of the new cigars from the Nestor Miranda Collection sample pack Paula picked at the Habana Vieja Lounge in San Jose, CA while at Cisco.

This firmly packed cigar is wrapped in a seamless habano wrapper that contains only small veins and it's topped of with a triple cap. From the foot there is a sweet tea aroma while the firm draw tastes like white pepper and ripe tree fruit.

As the medium bodied cigar burned there was a nice flavor mix consisting of sweet tea, white pepper, oak, caramel, ripe tree fruit, rich fermented tobacco and a toast with brown sugar finish. A one point in time the smoke had a dry red wine type finish. I don't find that in a cigar very often, but I like it.

As this Green Label burned, it was a bit wavy, but it never needed correction and gave me a full fifty-five minutes of smoking pleasure.

Like the Blue label, this Green label was rock-solid in construction, burn time and flavors.
