If your looking for a great everyday, budget smoke look no further Nick’s Sticks will have you covered. Grown on the trusted farms of the Perdomo Family in the fertile Jalapa Valley of Nicaragua, these cigars have a dark, oily, triple-fermented Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper that encloses a Cuban-seed binder and filler. This is a medium to full-bodied cigar with an easy draw and an initial taste of pepper and an earthy flavor right after that. The first third of this cigar was a little harsh but, just before the second third of the cigar a hint of sweetness came on. By hitting the second third of the cigar the harshness went away then the sweetness became more clear with the flavors of cedar and chocolate came on still mixed with the earth and pepper flavor which made a small hint of a cinnamon. Finally the finish of this cigar overall stayed the same as the second third with the pepper dying down slightly but, not completely. Overall, Nick’s Sticks Maduro had a harsh start but it began to come together the farther I got down. This smoke has a great burn and a some what consistent flavor throughout that I would recommended if you are on a budget and want a great everyday smoke.
