A Smoke For The Times

The other day I arrived home to find a box in my mail box from my good friends at Miami Cigar and Company. I opened the box to find 6 Nestor Miranda 1989 Oscuro Torpedos. The Nestor Miranda 1989 is manufactured by My Father Cigar Corp. I think Rene Castaneda described this cigar wonderfully, “ A satisfying blend of rich, aromatic and flavor filled Nicaraguan tobaccos, from the Esteli and Jalapa Filler.”

The Nestor Miranda 1989 comes in three sizes Robusto 5 x 50, Toro 6 x 50 and Torpedo 6 1/8 x 52. It is also comes with two different wrappers Oscuro a medium bodied smoke or Rosado which is more medium to full bodied. These cigars are great not just for price(between $5 and $5.50 per stick) but also for enjoyability.

I smoked the Nestor Miranda 1989 Torpedo with the Oscuro Wrapper. The cigar was consistent all the way through with hint of cocoa and nutmeg. The smoke set off a sweet tobacco aroma into the air. The smoke was pleasant to be around, at least that is what I was told. This cigar was a little mild for my palate but was amazingly enjoyable to smoke. I didn’t have to touch up the cigar once. It stayed lit while I carried on conversations with my fellow friends of the ash. I would highly recommend this cigar to anyone that wants a great smoke at a reasonable price.
