Wrapper: Shade Grown Criollo – Nicaragua
MSRP: around $8
My Rating: 4 Stars!
Xikar is well known for their cigar accessories within the cigar smoking community. The lifetime warranty on their products is second to none, I should know… I own many. When it comes to the cigars, they didn’t disappoint. Xikar teamed up with famed cigar maker Jesus Fuego to create this wonderful line.
Here we have the criollo version of this cigar with a beautiful oily wrapper and few veins throughout. Inital light up was of leather and slight hints of tea. The smoke was plentiful as I smoked it enjoying a malty beverage. The burn was pretty consistent as I only had to do a few small touch ups. The last third of the cigar was of nuts and a hint of cream on the back end. I really enjoyed this cigar, the only downfall was the $8 price tag… I would buy them for around $5 all day long.
Thank you to the Xikar and HC cigar team for giving me the chance to review this cigar.
I am the Chief Editor of In The Humidor and have been running this site since 2007! I enjoy a great cigar with friends and just hanging around the house. I have 3 beautiful daughters and a wonderful wife, we live in the Dallas, Tx area. I also enjoy a good bourbon, craft beer, and absolutely love the ocean and beach.
