Fin de Los Mundos Toro by Nomad Cigar Company (6 x 50)

Video review HERE.

(Description taken from Cigar-Coop.com website)
At the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show, Fred Rewey‘s Nomad Cigar Company showcased his Fin de Los Mundos line. This was a line that was first introduced at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show and had a subsequent limited release. Now the line is getting ready to have a more widespread release.

The name Fin de Los Mundos translates to “End of the Worlds”. It features a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper, a Nicaraguan Habano binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Pennsylvania filler. The cigar is being launched in four sizes: Corona Gorda, Robusto, Toro, and a 4 x 54 “Shorty”.

Fin de Los Mundos is the second blend by Rewey to use a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper. Last year, Rewey released his first maduro, the Nomad Therapy Maduro which also incorporated this wrapper. Rewey describes the Fin de Los Mundos as Nomad’s strongest blend to date.

The cigar is a dark brown and has an average feel in the hand for a toro. 

The dome cap made a good target for the cut. The test draw after cutting the cap was very good. The initial flavors were sweet cedar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a sharp, tangy apple flavor. There was also a lot of dark roasted black coffee and black pepper rated at a 7 1/2. There was also a small amount of whipping cream that seemed to tie all the flavors together.

1 1/2 inches in (22 minutes) the flavor notes are much like the initial assessment but now I am getting even more black coffee notes. For a broadleaf wrapper, which I assume is a maduro wrapper, the cigar does not have any chocolate notes but it has a ton of black coffee notes. The flavor of apple is rather unusual but that is what it tastes like. At this point the cigar is a high end medium in strength and body. The finish is a cream with nutmeg notes and a nice amount of lingering black pepper. At this point there is not a lot of nutmeg on the front end, however. The score for the first third is 90.

A little past the midpoint (51 minutes) there are still a lot of coffee notes. Some of the nutmeg notes are now showing up on the front end also. The sweeter notes in the cigar have actually increased somewhat. Note: smoke the cigar slowly to get the best flavors. The cigar is medium to full bodied. The finish is unchanged. Due to the increase in sweetness the midpoint score has increased to a 91.

The cigar lasted 1 hour 15 minutes. From the midpoint to the end the sweetness decreased. It decreased significantly and the nutmeg notes increased significantly. The coffee notes were still very heavy. The pepper remained very good. The cigar ended at medium to full bodied. With the decrease in overall sweetness and increase in dry nutmeg notes the final third score dropped to an 89. However, this was a good dark noted cigar that is a nice addition to the Nomad Cigar Company lineup.

Final Score: 90
