Nica Libre Potencia Churchill Extra Cigar Review

This 7×52 cigar sports an oily velvet dark brown sungrown wrapper with a slight red hue, triple cap, minimal veins, smooth tight seams and rich sweet earth aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw producing minimal smoke with medium bodied flavors of a smooth sweet earth much like it’s aroma. The first third shows much the same, only adding a bit of pepper to the draw flavors. It has a good bit of strength to it but certainly no full body as it’s marketed. The finish is long but subtle without and pepper or spice. 45 minutes in at the 1/2 way point flavors remained unchanged. Just over 1 hour in flavors finally shift a bit but require a double puff to really bring them out. They have transitioned to a soft creamy nuttiness followed by a soft oily earth. 1:25 minutes in after two touch-ups and a re-light the cigar is unfortunately out once again and I don’t care to try and continue it. Clearly this one just had severe construction issues. Thank you very much to viewer Darin Mohr for generously providing this for review!
