The newest release from 1502 Cigars is the Blue Sapphire. This new blend is a Nicaraguan puro using a Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper, with company founder Enrique Sánchez telling halfwheel.com it included tobaccos from the country, but not the Ometepe region. The blend is a hearty medium-full to full bodied cigar.
This new blend sit between the Black Gold and the Ruby in body but provides a fuller flavor profile than the Black Gold. The Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper smooths the blend out with notes of molasses, a bready sweetness, and a nutty finish. Overall this is a very complex cigar with in your face flavor and despite providing a decent amount of pepper it never dominates the profile on the palate.
