Pre Light

The Thunder by Nimish has a dark rich chocolate wrapper with an oily sheen to it. The cigar is topped off with a pigtailed triple cap. The wrapper is almost seamless and has a sweet manure aroma to it. The double bands take up a lot of room on the face of the cigar. After clipping off the cap I take a few drags off the cold cigar to get tastes of earthiness and sweetness.

1st Third

After the initial pepper from the first few puffs it dies down to make way for a sweet coffee flavor. The burn has been even and sharp so far but the cigar seems to be burning a little hot.  Towards the end of the 1st third I started to pick up flavors of nuts.

2nd Third

Here at the middle portion of the Thunder the cigar is starting to really burn hot and needed to a couple relights. The flavors of sweet coffee and nuts are still lingering around with notes of cocoa introducing itself around the halfway point.

Final Third

Well the final third of this cigar wasn’t even smoked cause as you can tell from the picture the cigar blew up and had an enormous void in the center of it. I’m guessing the reason for the cigar burning so hot was because of it.


Until the final third I really enjoyed the flavors of this cigar. I just seem to be having the worst luck with my reviews lately I can’t seem to find a cigar that will smoke through. The price point wasn’t bad on these so I’m gonna have to grab a few more to give them another try.

Keep em burnin’
