José L. Piedra is a particularly noteworthy Habano not only because its blend is composed of filler tobaccos grown exclusively in the Remedios tobacco region, but also because it is made using the Totalmente a Mano, Tripa Corta, or ‘totally hand made, short filler’technique.
Well-made and also very good in the draw, this cigar carries rich, earthy aromas with rougher undertones; spicy, rustic, full taste with notes of tender sharpness; a mouth full of Cuban aromas and terroir-expression for little money; it is not a cajoling cigar but an indigenous, medium Puro.
Cuban budget cigars. The draw is excellent. Vanilla and cocoa tones dominate. Full flavoured. These are perfect for beginners. At this price they're a steal.
