The 2011 A Turrent Puro Corojo series was created by Alejandro Turrent as an amazing follow-up to his successful Triple Play cigar. These great cigars did not disappoint the high level of anticipation that was awaiting their introduction. With the deep family history behind it, there is no doubt as to why the A Turrent Puro Corojo series was and continues to be a winning smoke.
With the immigration of Alejandro’s great-great-grandfather Alberto from Cuba to Mexico’s San Andres Valley in 1880, the business began with a small amount of Cuban seeds he brought with him. Years later, Alejandro slowly immersed himself into all phases of production and became the fifth generation in the family business. He is now President and co-owner of Nueva Matacapan de Tabaco in Mexico. The company, jointly owned with his father, is widely known for its 2000 acres of top of the line tobaccos.
The A Turrent Puro Corojo series is made entirely of quality Corojo tobaccos. The wrapper is Mexican San Andres while the binder is Nicaraguan and the filler is both San Andres and Nicaraguan tobacco. This medium to full bodied stogie is available in sizes such as Belicoso, Churchill, Toro, Gran Toro, and Robusto.
Cigar reviews agree that the A Turrent Puro Corojo series demonstrates its strength from start to finish yet feels easy and relaxingly smooth at the same time. Pre-lit, this smoke is a light brown color, lightly oiled and feels solid in the hand. When fired up, the first third is said to have woodsy and pepper flavors. In the middle the spicy taste remains with a reported nature undertone. To finish it up, the last third was said to have a stronger woodsy kick, making its full bodied nature apparent. This fine cigar is a staple in the humidors of cigar smoking aficionados of all smoking preferences.

|Cigar: Nestor Miranda Dominicano
||Wrapper: Dominican Rosado or Oscuro
|Sizes: Belicoso (6.1 x 52), Coffee Break (4.5 x 50), Pyramide (6 1/8 x 52), Lancero (7.5 x 40), Robusto Grande (5.5 x 54), Ruky (5-5/8 x 48 x 52)
The Nestor Miranda Dominicano bears the name of the country of which it was created to celebrate the heritage of cigar making. Remarkably, the Nestor Miranda Dominicano combines the brilliance and expertise of three prominent names in the industry: Don Pepin Garcia, Guillermo Leon de La Aurora, and Nestor Miranda.
Wrapped in a choice of Rosado or Oscuro leaves, this oily, coffee colored smoke is reported to have a fair amount of depth and complexity. The black and white band edged by shiny copper is a nice visual compliment to the expertly hand-made cigar. It is packed firmly with a slight sponginess when squeezed. Constructed of tobacco from Nicaragua, the most outstanding feature of the Nestor Miranda Dominicano, according to reviewers, is the incredibly solid ash that it produces. It has been reported to hang on until the beginning of the second half.
An earthy flavor permeates throughout with notes of sweetness. Cinnamon and caramel have been reported in the flavor palate of the second third. A nutty taste that had been lingering in the background steps to the forefront in the final third. For those who choose the Oscuro wrapper, an accompanying note of rich espresso flavors the array. A woodsy flavor is prevalent throughout that is well paired with a good beverage. With age, any bite that is noted in the fresh offering no longer exists. Instead, a mellow blend of sweet, woody, and nutty flavors comprises the enjoyable, laid back experience of this smoke.
Three important names came together to form this tribute to the history of cigars from the country whose name it bears. An extremely well constructed, slightly sweet smoke is the result of this collaboration. Improving with age, the Nestor Miranda Dominicano honors its namesake. For added convenience, be sure to find a reliable online cigar store and buy cigars online.

The Esteban Carreras 187 is a close sibling to the 5150. While they are very different, their names have something in common. They both have numbers in their names and their origin is said to be similar. The 5150 name has also been presumed to come from a police code.

Most people also agreed that the appearance of the cigar does not give any indication of the flavorful profile that is hiding inside the wonderful wrapper.

However, once they applied their favorite torch lighter and fired up the Esteban Carreras 187, the great mocha and coffee taste came pouring through. As well as the wonderful sweetness of chocolate or cocoa, it has been described as having a very rich, dark chocolate taste. Notes of nuttiness were also reported to be found in this fine cigar. The nuttiness flavor was said to be like almonds that had been caramelized.
With factories in Nicaragua and Dominican Republic, there is a history of tobacco ancestry that spans back several generations within A.J. Fernandez’s family. Working hand in hand with Craig Cunningham, this line was inspired and born. It was created for the discerning connoisseurs and aficionados, as well as the smoking novices of the world. The Esteban Carreras 187 never failed to please any of the reviewers. Each reviewer rated it highly and said that they would recommend it as a wonderful addition to any humidor.
