Mombacho Cigars S.A., isn’t new to the industry; the brand has been known as Mombacho worldwide. The Mombacho Liga Maestro cigar is a Nicaraguan puro that had previously only been available in Italy. Originally released in 2013, the blend was created in 2012 between Claudio Sgroi Mombacho Cigar S.A.’s master blender, and Stefano Bertini of B.L.S. Sigari in Milan, Italy.
The Mombacho Liga Maestro uses a wrapper from Jalapa, binder from Condega and fillers from the two regions. “I wanted to blend the different priming of ligero and viso because of the unique characteristics they bring,” said Claudio Sgroi, president and master blender of Mombacho Cigars S.A. in a statement. “The differences bring nuance and deepness and it can be said we went a little maniacal in the selection of our fillers to bring unique flavor and stimulation to the blend.” The cigar delivers rich tobacco flavors and falls in the medium to full bodied profile.
