Named for one of J.C. Newman’s original brands, El Baton is a standout Nicaraguan smoke. These dark, oily, and well-rolled stogies come dressed in a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper, which adds spice and leather to the already rich and earthy Nicaraguan binder and filler leaves. Expect a powerhouse smoke with notes of oak, black pepper, roasted nuts, and black coffee.
I've tried quite a few of the C.A. top 25 list at this point, and i have to say this is my favorite cigar on the list. Nice construction and visually appealing. This is a very flavorful cigar. Nice burn and the spice and complexity left me very impressed.
