Bering Puro Nicaraguan

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

I picked up this cigar at a local shop mainly because I never heard of it before. I have absolutely no information other then the fact that it is a Nicaraguan Puro, and is a product of Altadis. As always, I paired with a glass of water for the review, and offer you my thoughts.


Wrapper: Nicaraguan

Binder/Filler: Nicaraguan

Size: Robusto 5 x 52

Price: Around $6.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper had a lot of dark blotches all over it, but it was only a cosmetic flaw. It’s odor reminded me of hay in a barn, while the foot had a faint natural tobacco smell. The pre-light draw was a little snug, and had a sweet earthy tobacco taste. The cigar was firmly packed, but I did notice quite a few hard and soft spots.

The burn required a couple big corrections, and several minor ones. The ash held for about an inch. The draw loosened up and turned out to be OK.



The first third had a slight pepper in the nose, and dominant simple earthy flavors. As I dug further in, the pepper increased in strength but remained in the medium bodied range. Woody notes crept into the flavor profile as this third came to an end.


The second third kept simple woody and earthy flavors. The pepper reduced in strength and became sweet. At times the sweet notes would become mocha, but would change back into an anonymous sweet flavor. This was the routine for the rest of the second third.


The earthiness reduced in strength, while the woody flavors stayed the same. The pepper pretty much stayed the same. Sweet mocha undertones were present through out this third. There was a tinge of bitterness that normally doesn’t bother me in a cigar, but this time I didn’t care for it.



This was an OK medium bodied cigar. The flavors were good but it just seemed like any other random cigar. I officially rate this cigar as “OK.”
