Like the Sun Grown, the San Pedro de Macoris Nicaragua is quite a good looking cigar considering it supposed to be a budget friendly cigar. It has a satin medium brown wrapper that looks smooth with a well applied cap. The draw is really nice with notes of earth, cedar and leather.
The San Pedro de Macoris Nicaragua has a very savory flavor profile in the first half. I get notes of cedar, leather, cashews, mild black pepper, nutmeg and a hint of coffee. I get the coffee note more near the middle of the cigar. Also, the black pepper is stronger on the retrohale, but it also has a little bit more of the nutty notes. The cigar is smoking great at this point and putting off quite a bit of smoke. The cigar is a medium body with a long finish.
The San Pedro de Macoris Nicaragua on the last half much like the first half. I get notes of cedar, earthiness, espresso and faint cashew note. I get nutmeg and pepper on retrohale. The draw did start to loosen up on the last half though. Still, I find the cigar quite tasty. The cigar is medium body heading toward full.
Yet again, San Pedro de Macoris created a very flavorful cigar with a great price point. With woody, spicy and savory notes, it’s quite enjoyable. It’s a mostly medium bodied cigar with a great price point so it’s a another winner from San Pedro de Macoris that will appeal to many types of cigar smokers. I enjoy this version the most as it exhibits more of the flavors I like in a cigar. Check this out as you won’t be disappointed. It’s a phenomenal cigar, especially for a budget cigar.
Final Score: 91
