Cigar Review | 1502 Nicaragua

It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I finally get my hands on the 1502 Nicaragua in Robusto. This 5×50 box-pressed cigar features a buttery smooth wrapper. It is a Nicaraguan puro with tobaccos from Esteli, Jalapa, Condega, and Ometepe.

On the cold draw, I pick up a nice fruity cedar flavor. The wrapper produces a potent fruity earth aroma, while I smell raisins and tobacco out of the foot. Once lit, I pick up creamy cedar with white pepper and coffee on the draw. Through the nose, a sweet caramel and earth blends with cedar. The finish offers buttery cream on top of black pepper and cedar.

After twenty minutes, the first third closes out. On the draw, I pick up sweet, creamy cedar alongside hazelnut and white pepper. Through the nose, there is a delicious caramel and coffee. The finish offers fruity cedar with earthy and a salty toast. Strength and body settle in at the medium mark.

Forty-five minutes in, I finish the second third. There is more creamy cedar and white pepper on the draw with the addition of toast. The retro-hale is dominated by a wonderful flavor I would describe as sweet pastry dough. On the finish, I get white pepper with more earth and a subtle vanilla. Both strength and body continue to float around the medium mark.

The final third ends at one hour and fifteen minutes. On the draw, I find a slight vegetal earthy on top of spicy cedar and hazelnut. Through the nose, caramel and coffee make a welcome comeback. The finish sees the return of salty toast and more white pepper. Strength and body both jump up slightly to the medium-to-full mark.

The 1502 Nicaragua is a phenomenal cigar. It offers a great deal of complexity with wonderful flavors. The smoke is smooth and creamy, and the construction is spot on. I would consider this a delightful desert cigar that’s definitely worthy of a box purchase. Enrique Sanchez continues to impress me with his great smokes, and I highly recommend this one!

Smoke on!
