nowsmoking oliva baptiste maduro robusto cigar review at Famous Smoke Shop

Where it’s at: A handsome-looking, well-built Oliva cigar that’s earthy, cedary, and peppery out of the gate. The smoke rounds-out segueing to a medium-bodied mix of earth and cedar as a trace of sweet tobacco leaks-in. In ACT II, the sweetness improves complemented by the arrival of espresso, and the cigar settles into a well-balanced flow of earthiness, cedar, and espresso. By Act III, the body and strength are in high gear. Dark chocolate teases the palate and pepper dominates the finish. Overall, a bold, satisfying smoke for lovers of dark Nicaraguan tobacco flavor.

Gary-
Is the Baptiste Maduro wrapper the same as on the Inferno Melt? ie Is the CT broadleaf on the Baptiste grown in Nic.?
Do we know what the sweet tobacco is in the Baptiste?
Thanks,
Albert-
