Nate's Take: Our second release in the NDA Series, a more full and richer offering than The Plug but equally complex and mouth wateringly delicious. While The Plug was a perfect morning or first cigar of the day cigar for me, this is something I would smoke in the afternoon or evening. There is a certain taste to this that I can only describe as meaty. Rich and earthy with just enough black pepper spice to keep me interested, the taste lingers briefly but leaves my pallet clean. It is exactly what I am looking for when I want a medium + cigar and would pair well with a Scotch. Some cigars that I think are similar in taste profile: HR Signature, ADV Gold, Burnt Ends, Liga T52 PS. The construction on this was flawless, got almost halfway through before the ash fell.
At Renegade, you will find one of the largest humidors in the Dallas area. You will find the best selection of the most popular brands that are desired by people all around the country. Our humidor houses a perfectly curated selection of major brands that you cannot find anywhere else in the cigar world.
This has become status quo at Renegade: offering amazing cigars only available at this cigar lounge in Richardson, Texas. This particular release is in the medium plus category of strength, but the flavors are full and transition with complexity as you work your way through it’s length. About an inch in I caught myself thinking “did that just happen?”. The cigar morphed from cedar and pepper to a delightful, almost mocha richness. If you missed out on this limited batch, don’t make the same mistake on the next releases of the NDA series.
I am a novice cigar smoker, but I got excited for the NDA series. I wanted to try something new and get different tastes. 4AM IN SANTIAGO has not disappointed. I smoke it as a late afternoon/early evening smoke. It is full and a bit darker so perfect to my tastes. Cannot wait for the next release!
My overall experience ordering the cigars online from renegade was fantastic. Super easy to execute and the order was ready to pick up very quickly in store. Highly recommended
Great cigar, nice and smooth.
