Nostrano del Brenta Campesano: the unlit cigar stays true to the imprint of the brand, with a pronounce note of hay and dried flowers, with delicate hints of cocoa and wood.
Once lit, it is delicately salty but also acidic. Flavor-wise, the cigar expresses hints of wood and earth, with a soft mineral nuance. Strength is light (1/5).
Continuing, the saltiness grows next to the acidic component, that has remained unchanged. It is possible to appreciate a different flavor profile, now represented by wood, hay and walnut. Strength increases slightly, becoming medium-light (2/5).
Overall, the new Nostrano del Brenta Campesano remains faithful to the brand’s character and the presence of Dominican tobacco does not seem to be particularly distinct. However it is a good product, balanced on the palate and between the strength and flavor profile. Despite the short filler construction, it manages to bring out a respectable flavor profile.
