Throughout the world of premium hand rolled cigars, there are seemingly countless flavor profiles or tasting notes that you can experience when smoking. Things like earthy, spicy, sweet, and floral, but today, we’re going to talk about one of my personal favorite tasting notes that’s found in a lot of mild-bodied cigars: nutty tasting notes.

What gives a cigar nutty tasting notes?

Keep in mind that picking up on nutty tasting notes means when you take a puff of your cigar, you are experiencing hints of a flavor similar to almonds, cashews, walnuts or chestnuts. Sometimes you may even taste things like hazelnuts, peanuts or pistachios.

That being said, taste is completely subjective, so what one smoker experiences versus another could be two completely different flavor profiles.

Nutty tasting notes are normally more common in mild to medium-bodied cigars, and can add a creaminess and richness to the smoking experience. This nutty creaminess is produced throughout the growing and harvesting process due to the tobacco having less exposure to the sun, therefore the tobacco retains a natural nuttiness when compared to tobacco that’s spent more time under the sun.

Nutty tasting notes work well with many other flavor profiles, so it’s no surprise if you also experience some additional tasting notes like cocoa, coffee and dried fruit when smoking a nutty cigar.

Are there infused cigars with nutty flavors?

Technically there are two types of nutty tasting notes found in cigars. You have premium hand rolled cigars that simply feature a hint of nuttiness in every puff. On the flip side, there’s infused cigars. These infused cigars will produce a literal nutty taste and smell due to the tobacco being cured or infused with an added element.

While some cigar gurus may pass on flavor infused cigars, do know there’s absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying these hand rolled and flavorful stogies.
