Aging Room Quatro Nicaragua Tasting Notes
The Quatro Nicaragua is very striking, with a dark brown wrapper that shows only a few faint veins. It has a tight and perfectly symmetrical box-pressed torpedo shape, which is characteristic of a premium cigar. The black and gold Aging Room band is a bit old-fashioned, but it does look classy. The cigar also has a smaller orange band with “Nicaragua” printed on it. A cold draw revealed notes of earth, cocoa, and coffee. The pre-light aroma of the cigar is a faint earthy scent.
The cigar has a black pepper flavor right off the light. However, this peppery note quickly fades. The earthy notes that were present on the pre-light draw and sniff return after a few draws. These earthy flavors are enhanced by notes of wood and leather. The leather flavor fades away as the cigar approaches the mid-third portion, though the earth and wood notes remain.
The cigar burned quite evenly throughout the first third, which indicates that is was made properly. The tight white ash that it produced also is also indicative of quality tobacco and exacting construction.
The mid-third starts off with the earthy and woody flavors from the first third, though these notes are quickly joined by a number of other flavors. Delicious notes of dried fruit and coffee become evident. There is even a slight hint of dark chocolate that becomes more prominent as the wood and earth flavors start to fade slightly. The cigar slowly starts to develop a sweeter flavor profile as the mid-third burns down.
The ash stays tight and white, which is what you want from a premium cigar. However, it should be noted that the Quatro Nicaragua does start to burn a little unevenly. I even had to touch it up a little with my lighter, which shouldn’t affect the flavor too much (though it is a pet peeve of mine).
The Quatro Nicarágua really distinguishes itself as a premium cigar in its final third. The wood and earth flavors that had already started to fade in the mid-third disappear completely. In their place is a delicious flavor of rich cream. This delectable rich cream flavor continued throughout the rest of the cigar, even when it burnt down to the nub. The smoke stayed smooth and cool, and there was no harshness from the nub. Of course, this is what you would expect from such a highly rated premium cigar.
The cigar continued to produce the tight, white ash that is such an important indicator of quality. While I did have to touch up the cigar a little in the mid-third, the Quatro Nicaragua burned evenly throughout the final third, even towards the end. Only the absolute best cigars maintain both their flavor and form all the way to the nub like the Quatro Nicaragua does.
