'Nicarao Reserva Especial' 2015 Limited Edition in Stock !

London, England, 4, February 2019.

First (1), the leaves are harvested from the best plots on our farms. The leaves come from the best microclimates of our Nicaraguan terroirs.

Classification is therefore finer than the one for standard market leaves. Third (3), the leaves are kept around one year longer in fermentation and aging than market standard leaves. Having leaves from 2 to 5 ½ years makes the Nicarao Especial a cigar rolled with a moderately aged leaves.
