Quintero Favoritos Tubos Cigars were launched in the UK in 2019 (although they were launched on the Portuguese market in 2013). They are a shorter wider, cigar with a decent-sized 50 ring gauge, almost robusto-sized, but not quite long enough. These reflect the modern trend for shorter, quicker smokers and being made from short-filler, they are a great price. Presented here in a cedar-lined aluminium tube.
Quintero Favoritos Tubos Cigars are medium flavoured Cuban cigars made from handmade short filler from the Vuelta Abajo and Semi-Vuelta regions of Cuba. To make a blend for this kind of short filler Habano, the cigar maker combines leaves that have been cut into pieces; then rolls up the filler into the binder by using a flexible cloth to make a firm bonche. The wrapper is manually placed in the traditional way.
Quintero Cigars have a history stretching back as far as 1924 when when Agustin Quintero and his four brothers opened a small cigar factory in the town of Cienfuegos, The company was then known as Quintero y Hermanos. The company used to be known for producing machine made cigars at a good price however, when Habanos SA took control of the company in 2002, they discontinued all machine made cigars as they felt that it undervalued the Cuban Cigar “brand”. Quintero Favoritos Tubos Cigars are totalmente a mano (totally hand made) with a short-filler (Tripa Corta) blend of tobacco leaves from the Vuelta Abajo and Semi-Vuelta zones of the Pinar del Río Protected Denomination of Origin (DOP) region of Cuba.
This is a smooth, medium bodied cigar with aromas and flavours of coffee, grassy notes, leather, pepper and a hint of cherry and will smoke for around 45 minutes. Perfect for anyone who wants to experience the tastes and aromas of Cuban tobacco at a very friendly price. Will smoke for around 45 minutes.
