Made in Nicaragua, the American Classic Blend introduces a beautiful Connecticut Shade wrapper that sets the tone for this mild to medium bodied cigar. Flavorful Nicaraguan tobacco from Jalapa comprises the binder while equally distinctive leaves from Estelí and Condega make up the filler. Because the balance of these tobaccos are only a hint on the mild side, this is a great opportunity for those lighter smokers to step it up a notch in the strength department. American Classic Blend opens with a buttery and sucrose nuttiness that is underscored by spice notes. The opening sweetness fades into the background as the palate experiences a slight roasting of the earth and spice notes. The final chapter of this story involves the continued maturation of Nicaraguan spice that never becomes overwhelming.
