Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

As earlier divulged, New World Cigars first hit the market in 2014. The essence of this wildly successful father and son coaction is a nod to the discovery of tobacco and its introduction to the world. According to history, in 1492 when Christopher Columbus encountered the Native Americans, they offered him gifts. Among the gifts were dried tobacco leaves. Later the same year, tobacco was introduced to Europe and to the rest of the world thereafter.

To pay homage to this phenomenal event, New World Cigars are adorned with a band depicting the moment when Christopher Columbus first arrived in America.New World Cigars are all medium to full-bodied stogies. They embody a chichi excursion through Nicaraguan tobacco with all its layered subtleties. Since the original New World Cigar, now named Oscuro, there have been 3 more major New World additions and countless vitola releases to date.
Now let's find out what New World Cigars are really like.

New World Cigars: Oscuro

This was the original, box-pressed New World Cigar released in 2014. Oscuro features a delicious deep reddish-brown wrapper from Esteli, Nicaragua. Beneath it is a Jalapa leaf binder and premium long-leaf fillers from Ometepe, Condega, and Esteli.

This dark Nicaraguan wrapper makes for highly aromatic billows of smoke. You can expect superb caramel sweet spicy notes expertly comingled with earth, wood, espresso, and a crisp nutty finish.
New World Oscuro was a hit from the get go receiving 91 rating from Cigar Aficionado, 92 rating from Cigar Snob Magazine, and the coveted Cigar of the Year 2014 accolade from Cigar Journal with a 94 rating.

To date, New World Oscuro comes in 6 vitolas; Robusto (5.5x55), Belicoso (5.5x55), Gordo (6x58), Toro (6.5x55) Toro Redondo (6.5x55), and Double Corona (7.5x55) New World Redondo was first released as a limited-edition treat exclusive to TAA (Tobacco Association of America) members in 2019. Later towards the end of 2020 it became a regular production vitola. Redondo is Spanish for 'Round' and is the only vitola in the Oscuro line that is not box-pressed.

Still, in early 2020, AJ Fernandez decided to release New World Oscuro tins. Each tin carries 6 sticks in the Petit Corona size of 4x36.

Final Thoughts

Oh, talking about this quartet really got me peaking in my humidor to see which of these isn't there. It really is a tragedy to be without any of these given the affordability as well as quality and consistency.
