Looks: The Sabor de Esteli has medium colored brown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf that has a nice oily sheen to it. The wrapper leaf has some medium veins running through it as well as some dark spots. The band of this cigar is large and elaborate. Trimmed in gold, the band features a woman in a large flowing white and purple dress dancing in front of a tobacco field. The band reads, “SABOR DE ESTELI” at the top and, “By Noel Rojas” at the bottom.

Pre-light: Earthy aroma and taste with some slight cedar notes.

Taste: The Sabor de Esteli is a cigar that is full of consistent flavor. Upon first lighting the cigar I am met with red pepper notes, nuttiness, and some cedar notes present. Notes of red and white pepper stay fairly consistent in the Sabor de Esteli with a presence on the sides of the tongue and lips throughout the smoke. An overall nuttiness is the most notable flavor in the cigar and is consistent and on point throughout the cigar. The wood cedar notes are subtle and are an almost background flavor to the nuttiness.

Strength: Medium to Light Full.

Burn: Fairly even overall only requiring one small touch up to keep it burning even at the beginning. Smoke was plentiful and white.

Buy it? The Sabor de Esteli proved to be a flavorful and consistent smoke, pair that with quality construction and you have a great cigar. I personally tend to favor cigars with less pepper notes, but I will say that the pepper notes in this cigar were not harsh or overbearing.  For me, this is a great after dinner smoke that would pair excellently with a nice scotch or whiskey. All that being said, I think this is a cigar I will always keep a handful of in my humidor. If you are a fan of strong pepper notes, this is definitely a cigar for you to try!
