The Bellaterra Riserva de Famiglia aka Family Reserve is a very limited Nicaraguan puro, brought to us by Bellaterra Ranch Cigars.  The total production count for this blend will be 6,000.

The cigar itself features a very nice dark brown oily Nicaraguan wrapper.  The band work on this cigar is reminiscent of many classic style cigar bands.  The colors of the band are maroon trimmed with gold roping and featuring gold lettering.  There are a total of two bands, the top with the name of the cigar, and a simple secondary band that reads Nicaragua.

Flavor wise this cigar gives you just what you look for in a Nicaraguan puro.  The flavors present in this cigar are woody, with hints of cocoa and coffee as you develop into the mid-way point.  The Bellaterra Riserva de Famiglia has a very enjoyable creaminess that is present throughout the entire smoke.

Burn on this cigar was fairly even overall.  I did require one touch up early on, but after straightening out, this cigar burned fairly smooth throughout the rest of the smoke.  The ash on this cigar held firm and was light gray with some darker spots.

Buy it again?  Probably, when I say that I in no means want you to think that this was not a good cigar.  The cigar is great, flavors excellent.  The only thing that would hinder me from buying these in bulk is the price.  I smoked the corona for my review, which retails at $12.17, which is a little high especially for the size.  However, it is a limited production run.  If you can find them, I recommend you pick up a few to try!
