The Bespoke Nicaragua Battalion is a cigar that stands out for its impressive size and distinctive appearance. The bands are distinctive, with a regal-looking top band and a bottom band that adds a touch of whimsy. The wrapper is not the most consistent in terms of color, but this can add character and charm to the cigar. The foot exudes a medium-full aroma of pasta salad, milk chocolate, dry pasta, mustard powder, and acidity. The cold draw reveals a chocolate syrup flavor that is sharp and accompanied by red apple, earthiness, chocolate milkshake, and artificial vanilla. While the flavor sounds sweet, the sharpness of the main chocolate flavor reduces the overall sweetness. The initial puff is smooth and mild, with a hint of black pepper on the finish that adds a subtle kick. The body is full and coats the palate with a thoroughness that is pleasing. As the cigar is smoked, the flavors evolve with layers of dry wood and a full-bodied habano flavor. This cigar is not for the casual smoker, as it packs a serious punch in terms of flavor and strength. It is best suited for experienced cigar smokers who are looking for a bold, full-bodied smoke. If you’re ready to take your cigar game to the next level, the Bespoke Nicaragua Battalion is an excellent choice. It is a luxurious and expertly crafted cigar that offers a truly exceptional smoking experience.
