1502 Nicaragua


1502 Cigars Enrique Sanchez

Hang out with Enrique Sanchez for just 10 minutes, you will feel like you have been transported to Nicaragua. He absolutely oozes with pride and love for cigars and the industry as a whole. His passion for his cigars is second to none. We had some time to go over his upcoming release which he felt needed to stay true to his home Nicaragua and be 100% Nicaraguan. He did this by pulling tobaccos from four major regions Esteli, Condega, Jalapa, and Ometepe. By doing this has created a true Nicaraguan experience in a cigar. He was gracious to offer one for review at IPCPR 2014 and that is fully reviewed below.

Brand: Global Premium Cigars

Wrapper: Mexican San Andres

Binder: Nicaragua (Double Binder)

Filler: Nicaragua

Strength: Full

Size: Lancero 7.0 x 40

Price: $8.00


I was privileged to have received the Black Gold Lancero from House of Emilio to review. This was exciting as I loved the 1502 Emerald I had a month ago. 1502 cigars described the cigar on their site; “This particular cigar is made to satisfy the discerning smoker who enjoys bold and strong flavors.”  A fantastic description that fits this cigar to a T. The super dark brown maduro wrapper has a nice spicy and sweet scent to it. I get a slight hint of pepper from the cold draw. The foot has a partially closed tip which is unique, as I have never seen the foot presented this way before.

First puffs– A rush of thick black pepper envelops my tongue and engulfs the senses. Beneath is a deep oak flavor that seems to bolster the pepper. I also get a little taste of coffee mixed in. Initial draw is very smooth producing a ton of smoke.

First third– The pepper has calmed down giving way to the coffee and oak flavors. The burn is phenomenal on this cigar and is producing a nice white ash. Creamy and smooth so far.
Second third– As I transition there is a blast of pepper again followed shortly after by a sweet molasses. Burn continues to be sharp and is producing a ton of smoke.

Final third– The pepper really ramps back up, continuing it’s dominance in this cigar. A touch of cocoa compliments the coffee and oak.

Overall a fantastic smoking cigar that is definitely made for the seasoned smoker out there. The pepper is the main component used throughout this cigar but the cocoa really hits your sweet tooth. I would not go near this cigar if you are a light smoker or a newbie, the strength is on the full side all the way through. For the seasoned smokers however, this is a must try.

1502 Black Gold Lancero band





1502 Emerald


Brand: Global Premium Cigars

Wrapper: Nicaraguan Corojo Habano

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan and Mexican San Andres

Strength: Medium – Full

Size: Toro 6.0 x 50

Price: $7.00



The 1502 Emerald is part of a trio of cigars that focus on “Fina Fuerte” (Fine Strong). Blended to have a subtle strength, with flavor and aroma that could only be achieved with the blend of Corojo Habano de Nicaragua, long fillers from San Andres – Mexico and fields from Estelí and Condega in Nicaragua. The wrapper has a soft sweet tobacco scent that is oh so inviting. It has a nice light tan wrapper with prominent lines. The band is straightforward and simple, green with gold embossed lettering. The cold draw has a sweetness and a slight pepper.

First puffs– right away I get a fantastic white pepper note mixed with a deep cedar. The draw is effortless and is producing a ton of smoke.
First third– White pepper continued to be the highlighted flavor. There are some hints of floral and wood underneath. Not usually the focus but I must point out how effortless this cigar is to smoke. The draw is open, impeccable, and is billowing smoke. Also producing a very clean burn line.
Second third– Flavor profile remains the same with the addition of some nuttiness to it, very nicely balanced. The white pepper is a tad stronger in the second half of this cigar. Still drawing, smoking, and burning amazingly well.

Final third– I taste more of the floral in this last third of the cigar, mixed with the white pepper and cedar. I also get a faint sweetness as well. The burn has become a bit uneven but it is drawing very nicely still.


Overall a fantastic example of a white pepper flavor cigar. The highlight of this cigar was the construction and craftsmanship involved. I enjoyed the looseness of the smoke and the burn was great. A really great smoke for anyone who loves pepper and floral notes within the cigar. I would definitely suggest trying and expanding your taste to a whole new level.
