Extraordinary quality from Manuel Quesada, legendary Dominican cigar maker.
Cu-Avana’s resume is impressive, to say the least. Here’s just a few of many highlights. First, it’s made by Manuel Quesada – the man behind Fonseca, the 93-rated Casa Magna, and the creator of the original Dominican Romeo y Julieta. Second, Cu-Avana has sat snugly atop our top-sellers and top re-order list for nearly a decade. Finally, it’s (extremely) modestly priced and among the most consistent cigars on the market. And now, Cu-Avana just got a whole lot better thanks to a significant price drop. The only catch: we’ve ditched the boxes in favor of more cost-effective bundles. But hey, you can’t smoke the box….and the new low prices more than make up for the loss.
Cuban flair, Dominican mildness. If you enjoy smooth, pleasant and mild to medium-bodied cigars, Cu-Avana should be at the top of your list. Now made by Manuel Quesada, the hall-of-fame cigar maker responsible for many of the top-rated brands in the Dominican Republic, including Fonseca & Licenciados, Cu-Avana has experienced a major revival. This gorgeous cigar offers a genuine Connecticut shade wrapper and superior long-fillers from the lush Cibao Valley region of the Dominican Republic. Smoke after flavorful smoke, Cu-Avana is consistently delicious and quite relaxing with nary a bad burn or dud in a dozen boxes. Despite the smooth and unobtrusive taste, there are some subtle yet distinct flavors of creamy spiciness, along with some coffee and almost lemon-like flavors, making this light cigar a treat you can enjoy any time of day. So if you want a powerhouse with robust and rich flavor, Cu-Avana is definitely not for you. But for the mild to medium-bodied cigar lover, Cu-Avana has to be hands-down among the top 10 premium cigar values in America. Considering the quality of construction and stellar Dominican tobaccos, not to mention the silky smooth, flawless Connecticut shade wrappers, a cigar this good for as low as 2 bucks apiece is just not common.
