Capadura 898 Ligero CigarThe Capadura 898 Extra Ligero cigar is a favorite among reviewers and aficionados alike. This full-bodied stogie is available in four sizes: Robusto, Churchill, Torpedo and Jumbo. First impressions are important, and this stick makes an exceptional one with its dark brown wrapper and solid cap. Each stick is expertly constructed and provides an incredible smoking experience for anyone demanding nothing less than the best.

The Brazilian wrapper is from Arapiraca Campesino, and provides a natural look with just a touch of shine. It is smooth and supple. The sleekness of the wrapper has some toothiness to it and comes with a few veins. Reviewers noted that the stick feels perfect when rolling it between the fingers, and has just the right amount of give. Overall, the construction is excellent and suggests that good things are inside.

The Dominican Republic manufacturer uses a combination of La Canela and Cubano tobaccos for the binder, and tobaccos from Nicaragua, Esteli, Dominican Republic and Piloto Cubano to create a flavorful and strong filler. The Capadura 898 Extra Ligero cigar is a creative melding of tobaccos from the most respected growing locations in the world. Each stogie is aged to perfection and expertly rolled by hand.

The cold draw was said to have a subtle sweet aroma of pure tobacco. The first third offers a slight peppery zing with a mildly sweet aftertaste. It is not exceptionally strong however, and the peppery sweetness is pleasant to reviewers. The second third still contains the previous zing with added layers of wood and leather. The flavor combination continues throughout the second and final third without much change in strength. The Capadura 898 Extra Ligero cigar is an ideal balance of simple and complex. The flavors are never noted as being overpowering, yet are pronounced enough to be easily recognized.

The strength remains relatively constant throughout the entire stick. Reviewers stated that the first third is medium-bodied and transitions smoothly to full-bodied by the middle of the second third. While the stogie is considered a medium to full-bodied stick, it is never overbearing. Reviews state the flavor complexity and ideal strength are exceptional examples of a premium tasting smoke with a reasonable price tag.

Another notable thing about the Capadura 898 Extra Ligero cigar is its price. Premium stogies do not have to cost a fortune, and this is one that proves it. Both singles and boxes are relatively low in price, making it a cost effective buy for both the novice and the aficionado. The availability is also second to none, with high production rates ensuring the local tobacco shops and online resellers are always stocked up.

Finding an online source is the first step in choosing a premium stogie, and with this manufacturer on the job it is an easy task. Ace construction and flavor complexities make for a superior experience, and the price is incredibly low for the quality. It is sure to be a favorite in any humidor.
