One could consider this an estate cigar of sorts, as most of the tobacco from the New World Dorado comes from a single plot of land, namely the Dorado farm in Estelí, Nicaragua. Both the farm and the cigar are owned by A.J. Fernandez. Dorado’s all-Nicaraguan blend is made up of a sun-grown, Cuban-seed wrapper and Criollo ’98 binder, both from the Dorado farm. Although there’s some tobacco in the filler from two other fields, the rest is from Dorado. This plantation is only five years old and the tobacco here comes from its maiden harvest, but the results have been impressive. Each puff is rich with layers of caramel, orange peel, nuts and espresso.
