Wrapper: Corojo 99

For five hundred years, Nicaragua has served as a crossroads of cultures, ever since indigenous inhabitants mocked arriving Spanish conquistadors in a colorful, costumed satirical masterpiece called “El Güegüense” (El-Wha-When-Say), or “The Wise Man.” It is Nicaragua’s signature work of drama, the ultimate expression of its unique history, language, dance, and culture. This Gran Baile, or great dance, continues today, not only in the form of long-held folkloric performances, but in the careful blending of Nicaragua’s tobacco.  This medium-full bodied blend of Corojo 99 and Criollo 98 from Nicaragua deliver a rich and flavorful experince.

    The first third starts off with a cinnamon and black pepper. I then pick up a woody cedar note and a slight zest as well.
    About 15 minutes in the flavour develops into a roast coffee.
    The 2nd third introduces a cocoa note to the mix. I then pick up oak notes before the flavour becomes a little muted. Toward the end of the 2nd third I’m getting lots of earth that has taken over.
    The final third hits me with flavour. I’m reminded of a vanilla sponge cake. The flavour becomes spicy toward the end with lots of black pepper.
