Blackbird The Nest Maduro
“Seriously Shad? A $5 cigar?” – before I get those emails – I would not stock it if I wouldn’t smoke it! Blackbird Cigars has made one of the best $5 cigars I have had since the early 90s. The Nest is covered with a San Andres wrapper and contains filler that is 60% long filler and 40% short filler tobacco. The Maduro version is medium in body and strength. Flavors include spice, espresso, earth, chocolate and some sweet tobacco. The Nest isn’t overly complex or complicated – but for $5 a pop, these might be one of the best buys out there! I encourage you to give it a shot!
