Cigars International, my go-to internet cigar store, is always running great specials and recently I saw a good deal on the Nica Libre.
Color-wise the look of the Libre wrapper in the first comparison was slightly darker than the Padron, but in the second test the colors were indistinguishable. Getting a groove going with each cigar was important to allow for an appreciation for what each cigar had to offer.
The flavors are constant, coa coa, coffee, and just a tad bit of pepper on the finish. This is a creamy smooth cigar with hints of leather, dark coffee and black pepper.
Fred, I am glad you commented.
Toro Wrapper: More impressed were they when I showed them that the cigar was, in fact, a Nicaraguan puro. Last year I revisited the brand to see if the newer vintages held up. Time and again I remarked about how similar it was to my favorite the Padron.

In the fist comparison, both cigars exhibited a lush draw and a burn rate that produced identical lengths of ash within the same timeframe. Exclusivo 5. Please note that this is not a review in the traditional sense. A perfect razor sharp burn and the cigar is providing me with tons of thick chewy smoke on each draw.
I think if they hold this price and keep quality the same this will sell very well all the time. Nica Libre is a great cigar. As you can see from the pictures it was hard to tell one cigar from the other.
Don't cut too much off the head - you'll find yourself with a very loose draw and the stick could burn unevenly. Nicaragua Flavored:
