Nueva Vida, Spanish for “New Life” represents the culmination of my cigar journey - combining my love for Nicaraguan tobacco with my new found passion for some of the best tobacco the Dominican Republic has to offer. What you have in your hands is the result of smoking multiple blends to get the balance we felt was needed for this cigar to shine. We needed to ensure that both the Nicaraguan and Dominican tobacco each took center stage throughout this smoking experience. The Nicaraguan Condega and Jalapa add sweetness to the blend, while the Dominican Corojo and Criollo add a minerality and earthiness which was the perfect counterpoint. The balance, construction (did we mention how great that pigtail is?), and the flavor profile of Nueva Vida has quickly found this cigar at the top of our cigar rotation.
