Like all long-standing names in the realm of all things craft, Nestor Miranda has seen its fair share of changes over the years, continuously adapting to the style and preferences of modern-day enthusiasts.
Then again, some things never change...
Enter the Nestor Miranda Special Selection—a cigar so iconic that to many smokers, it IS Nestor Miranda! The brand first debuted in 2006, sporting Mr. Miranda's iconic signature front and center on the cigar's band. But when the company overhauled its lineup in 2014, the Special Selection was placed on the sidelines, patiently awaiting its eventual return. That time is NOW, as Nestor Miranda has revamped the brand as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations throughout 2019.
Cigar enthusiasts spoke, and Nestor Miranda listened, as the Special Selection became one of the brand's most frequently requested offerings. In its return, little has changed: the bands still showcase Miranda's signature, and the blend is largely the same. Rolled at the world-renowned My Father Cigars factory in Estelí, Nestor Miranda Special Selection boasts a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, which is secured over a Nicaraguan Criollo '98 binder and fillers of each of the country's three major growing regions (Estelí, Condega, Jalapa).
The finalized experience is everything hobbyists had hoped for, bringing loads of flavor from start to finish... all while maintaining the line's equally famous, affordable price point! Expect a full-flavored, near-full-bodied experience, brimming with notes of cocoa, freshly roasted coffee, molasses, roasted nuts, and zesty spice through the nostrils.
