The Cigar: Mombacho Thermonuclear (Miami Edition) Robusto

The Specs:
Wrapper: Nicaragua Corojo
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Country of Origin: US
Strength: Full
Size: 5"x 54

Due Date: May 25, 2021

The Hype:
The Miami limited edition, also known as the Thermonuclear, is powerful, so make sure you sit down while you smoke it. This cigar takes its name from the legendary volcano that is located just outside of the Nicaraguan city of Granada. When you first light it up, you can see that the name makes sense. This solid, full bodied smoke is made of 100% aged Nicaraguan tobaccos. The wrapper is from the infamous Jalapa region, known for its oily and spicy tobaccos. The original Mombacho Thermonuclear was introduced in 2004 by Tabacalera Tropical (the company now known as Casa Fernández) and was made in Honduras. In 2016, production was moved to Casa Fernández in Miami, using the same all Nicaraguan blend as the original cigar, and making it an exclusive to Serious Cigars of Houston, Texas (now owned by JR Cigars). Mombacho by Aganorsa should not be confused with another Nicaraguan brand also carrying the name. (There are two different Mombacho brands in the U.S.)

The Reviewers: Pete has selected the following reviewers:

1. HolySmokes (Rich)
2. bstessl (Brian)
3. tuck0411 (Todd)
4. gitfiddl (David)
5. Otter (Jay)

Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.

Thanks again to Pete for providing the cigar. And thank you to the reviewers.

Thanks, Pete.  Didn't realize until now that there was more than one "Mombacho" brand.  But, haven't had anything from either one of them yet, so looking forward to this.   :smoker2:

Hey,  you should check out The Herfcast!  It's not about anything in particular,  just talking about whatever comes to mind while smoking cigars and having a drink or 4.

Got mine today as well, I was confused as hell wondering where all these cigars came from...  After remembering I was in the June critique I figured it out.  Thanks Pete!

Got mine today, really yesterday but the pathetic USPS put it into into someone else's mailbox at least they were honest and dropped it off last night.

Stealth bomber - much appreciated my friend!

Good to hear all the packages landed safely. By the way, the cigar without a label is an Olivia 2nds, supposedly the Melanio V, you can decide for yourself.  :biggrin:

Being a fan of these 2nds and pretty intimately familiar with many of them and having submitted them all to the DB, the one in question is here for those wishing to add it to their virtual humidor...

Alright guys, I went ahead and submitted my Geek Critique on the Mombacho. Had it for about three weeks but my wife and I are expecting our child (#4, pray for me :snoring:) to be born next week and didn't want to be late haha, who knows how it will change things. Thanks again Pete, for me this was a great smoke and kept me interested.

tuck0411

Probably should have posted this sooner... this stick wasn't previously in the DB but it's in now with Brian's (Ninfiction) help:
http://www.cigargeeks.com/index.php?action=cigars;area=showcig;cigar_id=192745&t=Casa_Fernandez_Mombacho_Miami_Robusto

There are a couple of other options that appear to be the same stick, but one is an older edition and the other is incorrectly entered (wrong brand) and should probably be removed.  The one above has all the correct information.

One of the admins can probably do that, hopefully.  Apologies for not posting about this earlier...

No problem at all! Having it right is most important.
