New World Puro Especial Robusto

New World Puro Especial Robusto features a special blend of tobaccos hand selected by AJ Fernandez and his father Ismael.

The result is a medium bodied smoke with nutty notes and a sweet finish. This Nicaraguan puro earned a spot in the top 25 cigars of 2017 and a high 93 rating. New World Puro Especial Robusto is 5 1/2 x 52 and available in five packs or boxes of 20.

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: Puro Especial

New World Puro Especial Robusto

After the Conny came New World Puro Especial released in 2017. The Puro Especial is outstanding in that it features only Esteli-grown Nicaraguan tobacco. So, the wrapper and binder are Habanos while the filler is simply Nicaraguan. At a glance this cigar may not appear like much but wait until you learn what's in there.

There are some Criollo '98 leaves from the San Jose farm, some flavor-packed priming from La Soledad farm, choice crop from La Providencia for that heart stopping aroma, and pinches of filler from the San Diego farm just because of the mineral quality of the soil. All the leaves are aged between 3-5 years.

The result is a complex tapestry of flavors including leather, mineral earth, cedar, hickory, and charred meat perfectly balanced by coffee, almonds, cocoa, and pepper. Did you know that New World Puro Especial was first released in limited quantities under the name Habano Especial?

As far as ratings go, this baby has done exceptionally well. Cigar Aficionado gave it a 93 rating and the No. 12 slot in the 2017 Cigar of the Year list. Cigar Snob magazine gave it a 92 rating while Cigar Journal gave a 91 rating and the 11th position in the Top 25 Cigars of 2017.

Vitolas include Robusto (5.5x52)Short Churchill (6x48)Toro (6.5x52), and Gordo (6x60). Originally, New World Puro Especials came in red boxes but as of 2021 AJF redesigned the boxes to resemble the rest of the packaging under the New World Cigars brand.

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.
