Cuesta-Rey Centenario Natural No. 60

Personal Cigar Review: Cuesta-Rey Centenario Natural No. 60

The Cuesta-Rey Centenario Natural No. 60 had a nice start, with a good combination of flavors and a smooth delivery. Things took a step down in the second third as the black pepper departed and maintained that level the rest of the way. The price point is attractive, so I could see coming back from time to time, but it's not a cigar where I'd sit down to focus on flavors, but more of something I'd smoke as part of a pairing or while doing other activities.

Team Cigar Review: Cuesta-Rey No. 95 Cameroon

"True" Cameroon wrappers have always been intriguing to me. There's the ideal of where it should come from, where the best come from, and there is talk about how if it's right, it'll taste rich in spice and sweetness alike. But the (my) reality is, I haven't had many good ones. Then comes this Cuesta-Rey No. 95 Cameroon. Rich, sweet, spicy and full of flavors. This was great from first to last draw.

Team Cigar Review: Cuesta-Rey Centro Fino Sungrown No. 60

The Cuesta-Rey Centro Fino Sungrown No. 60 had a nice start with some complexity and then the second third saw a bit of a drop as some flavors left the profile. This was my first time smoking anything from this line and it was a nice experience. Not something I'll go to frequently, but when the opportunity arises, I wouldn't shy away from smoking it again.
