Esteban Carreras Chupa Cabra CigarThe Esteban Carreras Chupa Cabra cigar promises a great profile, and the name choice is turning heads. The mythical “goat sucker” of the Americas is an interesting choice of symbols for this world renowned manufacturer, but the reputation of the company guarantees a great experience. There are numerous sizes and shapes to choose from, and the price is inexpensive so it fits into any budget. There are single sticks for the aficionado that wants to sample a couple stogies, or there are boxes of 20 for those that have already tried these fine cigars.

The stogies come in eight sizes and shapes to please more smokers: the Corona, the Double Corona, the Lancero, the Robusto, the Siglo, the Sixty, the Toro, and the Torpedo. There are plenty of options for the aficionado to find their preferred style, and the high quality remains consistent with slight changes in flavors and strengths. Retailers are having a hard time keeping them in stock, so the fan of these sticks should snag them when they become available.

The wrappers are fine Habano Oscuro, combined with Nicaraguan filler leaf. They are manufactured in Nicaragua with a Nicaraguan binder. The flavor is said to be bold, and the tobacco strength starts at medium-bodied and touches in the full-bodied category, depending on the shape and size. The wrapper is a natural brown color with a slight sheen, and it is smooth without any noticeable soft spots. The Esteban Carreras Chupa Cabra cigar is a choice stogie for new and experienced smokers alike.

The foot of the stick is unfinished, and the pigtail cap combines to bring a nice rough appearance to this blend, so the stick lives up to its mythical name. The elegant band is understated and does not take away from the look of the oily chocolate colored wrapper. The pre light aroma is said to be full of floral and woodsy tones, and there are undertones of oats and earth as well.

Reviews have been great when it comes to the Esteban Carreras Chupa Cabra cigar. The opening profile proves to have some really good floral flavors, and then the aficionado gets to enjoy the oats and wheat that give it a nice crisp flavor. There are pleasing undertones of spice and light pepper, so there is a definite kick left lingering on the back of the palate. The closed foot makes for a tight draw, but it is not too tight, so the smoker can really appreciate the construction and the flavors without considerable effort.

The Esteban Carreras Chupa Cabra cigar comes into its own in the second third, and the profile really opens up. Reviewers said there is more of a punch with the spice and pepper becoming more prevalent than in the first third, and the woodsy flavor is stronger without being distracting to the complete profile. It is a nice full-bodied strength by the end of the second third.

The burn is reported to be even, and the smoke is thick and fragrant. There are not any signs of ash falling prematurely, and the Esteban Carreras Chupa Cabra cigar is razor sharp from beginning to end and moves nicely without needing to relight. The appearance is superb and it has a superior taste profile. The stogie is complex without confusing or distracting the smoker from the overall experience. The strength of the stick is unique according to the size and shape, but each is going to finish in the full-bodied range.

The Esteban Carreras Chupa Cabra cigar, regardless of choice in size or shape, is a great addition to any personal humidor. It has a good flavor profile, strong strength, and affordable price that make it ideal for gift giving or personal enjoyment.
