Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Impromptu Figurado
If this looks familiar, it’s because…yes…this is the same blend as the 2019 Cigar of the Year. No doubt rolled to commemorate its honored sibling, Maestro, the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Impromptu Figurado is a special-edition extension to the Quattro Nicaragua line. All of the original appointments remain the same: all Nicaraguan tobaccos, made in partnership with AJ Fernandez, and the same award-winning flavors that crowned it in the first place. We’re talking sweet, zesty flavors with crisp layers of earth and spice. All that in a rare throwback Figurado shape – one of the hardest for any factory to roll. Plus, it’s a perfect way to wind down on the patio from your first night grilling of the season.
Wrapper: Ecuador Corojo
Binder: Nicaragua Corojo
Filler: Nicaragua Corojo
Calling all Corojo fans! Here we’ve got the first of two diamonds in the rough from Rojas. This one’s called Bluebonnets and I’ll be honest…I wouldn’t be surprised if you hadn’t heard of it. What this cigar has isn’t a household name. Or the pedigree of a well-known blender’s side project. What it might be, though, is the start of one of the next big boutique brands. Why? Two reasons. Flavor and price. And the growing number of positive reviews I’ve been seeing about it tells me I’m probably right. I found the smoke to be quite sweet with lush, earthy vibes, pointed spices, and even some cocoa on the finish – all with a medium-bodied temperament. Is it worthy of your humidor? If you like sweet cigars at a great price. Absolutely.
Wrapper: Mexican San Andres
Much like it’s Corojo-wrapped cousin above, Rojas Statement has big flavor appeal at a price that won’t have you taking out a second mortgage. Included are some big rips of dark cocoa, earth, sweet wood, and spices that will satisfy any Maduro fan. The construction is on point, too – something I see overlooked on some other cigars of its range. These folks at Rojas are full of pleasant surprises and that’s what makes Statement the kind of Maduro I’d keep handy for friends. The kind of great cigar I’d want to them to try. The kind they’ll think I paid much more for.
