Introducing the new Cusano Premium Nicaragua

On the heels of the successful Cusano Dominican range, Oettinger Davidoff launches the new Cusano Nicaragua Estelí line.

(Basel, Switzerland – June 2016)  To delight cigar lovers who are looking for fine quality cigars at great value, Cusano is expanding its premium range with the addition of a new medium-to-full body Nicaragua Estelí line. Blended with fine Nicaraguan and Dominican filler tobaccos and refined with a Negro San Andrés wrapper from Mexico, this line is designed for aficionados seeking the daily pleasure of a great-tasting cigar to enjoy calmly at their leisure or share with friends.  

Charles Awad, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and Innovation at Oettinger Davidoff AG, said: “We continue to look for ways to broaden our portfolio to meet key aficionado taste preferences and be the indispensable business partner to retailers worldwide. The new Nicaragua Estelí range will spice up the Cusano offering by bringing a stronger, fuller bodied multi-origin blend made of tobaccos from Nicaragua, Mexico, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic to our Cusano brand.”

TASTING NOTES:
The Cusano Nicaragua Estelí shows off with a beautiful Mexican wrapper that is shiny and veinless, leaving a honey sweetness on the lips. After the first puffs, one can immediately feel the impact of the Nicaraguan filler tobaccos that stimulate the back area of the palate with spicy notes. Additional woody, creamy and earthy notes are derived from the Dominican filler tobaccos to deliver a more complex experience. To guarantee the quality and excellent taste, Cusano master blenders oversee the making of the complete Cusano cigar range in the Dominican Republic.

This new Cusano Nicaragua Estelí cigar range will be available at premium tobacconist stores in the USA as of June 2016.
