All You Need Is a Little Nomad Therapy - I go for the Maduro

I'm always draw immediately to the rugged, dark good looks of a cigar ... and Nomad Therapy Maduro by @Godfadr is a satisfying treat.

The Look is tempting with White and Black Band on a Wrapper with visible veins.

The Cold Draw yields cocoa, tobacco  flavors with tingly spice on my lips.

Upon lighting the Initial Puffs produce a spicy start, with Cedar, Earth, Cocoa with a slight sweetness of raisins.

Nomad Therapy is not shy at all. Five minutes into the First Third and a spicy and smoky red pepper makes a bold appearance, along with wood, some white pepper in the background with cinnamon and nutmeg spices.

The white ash hangs for a bit with a killer burn and lots of smoke.

In the end of the First Third the spice has settled down some allowing an aromatic cedar flavor to come in more prominently. The Nomad Therapy has my attention and as I sit and admire the smoky scents, I can feel all my tension fall away from my shoulders. I'm in a deep trance with this Therapy Maduro.

As the ash drops there is a flavor shift to an alluring creaminess, combined with almonds and wood.

It's so nutty, yummy and satisfying.

Second Third has sustained almonds, wood and some spice to keep things interesting. It's the balance of the flavors that excites me. They are distinct and delectable.

Half way into the stick a subtle cocoa emerges and right now I'm in heaven.

Final Third the spice is prominent, mixing well with the cocoa, earth, and wood bringing me to a satisfied finish with the Nomad Therapy Maduro.

This cigar is a dream to smoke. Gives you someone to think about, to meditate on and the finish gives you something to savor long after you say goodbye to this Therapy. I prescribe at least a weekly session, but daily works well too.

Wishing you long ashes ....

Relaxing at the Cigar Aficion Lounge with One Life Maduro by Nestor Miranda

Any Saturday afternoon you might find me hunting for new cigars at local cigar lounges in and around NYC. I love when really good lounge managers come up to me with ideas for new smokes to try. At Cigar Aficion in Staten Island, the manager there always has a few good ones for me in mind.  His suggestion was Nestor Miranda One Life Maduro Danno Edition.

With a dark and rich maduro leaf wrapper, the One Life caught my attention right away with a pigtail cap. With a glistening shine and bulging veins, I found the cigar to look strong and classy ... dapper even.

 The  band is a very attractive, modern look with red, black and silver colors. I sat down with a smile admiring this beauty of a cigar, and smelled the foot for cocoa and a slight pepper scent. Bottled water in hand, I rolled the pigtail to see if I could smoke it that way, but because the draw didn't feel right, I had to straight cut the cigar.

First Third

Immediately you can taste coffee and chocolate within the first few puffs. There is  slight smokey pepper in the background that I'd liken to a chipolte or Hungarian paprika. This cigar is smooth and yummy. I could feel One Life caressing my senses, calming my mind and bringing me into sharing this moment with a dark and luscious love. 20 minutes seemed to fly by bringing me      to ...

Second Third

I have to say that a floral or licorice taste came forward with the chocolate and coffee starting to settle into the background. There is this beautiful sweetness that emerges and at first thought, I believed it was raisins, but no, it was succulent plums. Mixing with earthiness, 25 minutes into this third, I could taste black pepper brightening the flavor profile. It was a nice addition to this sumptuous smoke that felt amazing between my lips.

Last Third

The final third opened up with a spice and chocolate that kept the cigar flavorful throughout this experience. A nutty and creamy cashew entered the profile bringing this creamy goodness to this smooth tasting cigar. A few puffs later, a breadiness joined the profile and a subtle raisin sweetness, bringing this Saturday afternoon delight to an end.

I smoked two Nestor Miranda One Life Maduro cigars for this review, both times with Water. The first time at this lounge and the second time during #SundayCigarHerf. It was a very good smoke and I look forward to trying more cigars from this company.

Have a Smokin Week !
