BACKGROUND: Nomad Estelí Lot 8613 are made at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez and have a Nicaraguan filler and binder, trussed up in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper.
All sizes of the Lot 8613 have a MSRP under $9.00. The cigars come in boxes of 21 and in 5 sizes. The cigar I’m featuring today is the 6 inch by 50 ring gauge Toro.
FEATURED LIBATION: TINCUP Whiskey
Tin Cup is made by Jess Graber and is his newest whiskey. It is his take on classic American Whiskey. He wanted to make a whiskey with a bourbon style profile, but with a more powerful and spicy flavor.
TINCUP is made from a blend of corn, rye, and malt. Technically speaking, it’s a bourbon, which means it contains over 51% corn mash, but it also has a very high rye content, so as to add spice and pepper, but is balanced with the sweeter notes of bourbon.
