IN ADDITION:
I first reviewed this blend in its Corona Gorda No. 11 format HERE.
Purchase the Joya de Nicaragua Cabinetta No. 2 Belicoso via my chums my pals at Cigars City.

"A myriad of taste and aromatic sensations can be detected in this creamy smoke. Each cigar’s head is finished with a swath of sun grown Criollo that adds just the right touch of peppery linger to the Cabinetta’s intricate taste profile." From the Joya de Nicaragua site.
