Blind Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua | Número Uno Le Premier

“This cigar is my gig. Nice mild-medium bodied profile flavors of oak, vanilla, cream, custard, sweet milk caramels and the slightest bit of pepper to give this cigar great character.

If this cigar remains consistent across multiple samples, I would definitely recommend buying these buy the box as it was truly a fantastic smoking experience!” -John A. (Bostoneo)
