Last week I set aside a little time to get out to Sir Stogies for a Miami Cigar Event. It has been a while since I’ve attended an event and I thought it would be a great opportunity to meet up with my local rep, Chris Lenzo, and get caught up on what I’ve missed being without a local B&M.
While I was at the event, I picked up a handful of cigars, the first of which to be reviewed is the Nestor Miranda Casa Miranda Chapter Two. I don’t recall precisely what the price was but I’m pretty sure it came in at just over $8.00.
I think the Casa Miranda Chapter Two falls into a very competitive rice range at $8.00 to $10.00 and may not have the ‘Household Name’ status to propel the line. Had they not been a feature of the local event, it may have been a little while before I got around to trying one.
Despite my apprehension on the price point, I think the Casa Miranda Chapter Two is a wonderful cigar that offers a variety of complex flavors. My favorite of which was a sort of lemon-zest flavor. This bright flavor almost seemed as though it cleansed the palate and prepared you for the next puff. Primary flavors consisted of earth, wood, pepper, and spice.
The Casa Miranda Chapter Two is a solid medium bodied cigar with a slight creamy finish. Construction was excellent and I was very happy with this stick overall. While the Casa Miranda Chapter Two may not have that ‘Household Name’ status, I think it is well worth the asking price.
