Light to Medium
These have become very popular in the economic downturn. Those of you looking for some Cuban magic on a budget try these smokes. A thick ring gauge gives this a real nice feeling in the hand. This cigar will not blow you away but is more suited to a pleasant daytime smoke.

Quintero favoritos, let's go through this one step at a time. We start by looking at a relatively inexpensive cigar in a catalog. A Cuban robusto for under 80 Euros seems highly improbable. Well guys, I can tell you that pulling the trigger on this one was the smartest thing I've done in a long time. The construction of this cigar is well above the average, and very consistent. The draw is easy and cool, as would be expected from a robusto. The burn is relatively fast, but it easily holds a perfectly formed 2-inch light grey ash, as well as any I've seen. The flavor of the cigar remains relatively constant throughout the session. I would be willing to give the cigar 5 out of 5 if it were not for the flavor being rather noncommittal. There are definite floral notes, and an undeniable taste of leather, but it just doesn't give enough of either to be truly great. The catalog rates this a light to medium strength, but I would say it goes a little lighter than that, a year or so in the humidor and this would easily belong in the light category. The upside of that is that it doesn’t stay on the pallet for long. The way things stand, this cigar is worth every penny and more. With it's even controlled burn, and delicate flavor, It would also be a great cigar for the initiate. I paired this smoke with some Jameson® Irish Whiskey for a very nice experience.

I was really impressed with this cigar for the price. Very flavorful and enjoyable to smoke It would be a good morning or mid-day cigar with a cup of coffee. Don’t let the price keep you from trying them.
