Even the King of Mild has a dark side!
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.
Introducing, the Cu-Avana Maduro. This is wonderfully constructed. Just rolling it between your forefinger and thumb you can feel the quality. The naturally-fermented Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper leaf is enticing just to look at, with a deep, rich color and oily to the touch. Lighting it up, you’ll notice a perfectly slow burn, some subtle spicy notes and layers of complexity that mellow suddenly into a mild, very pleasant and sweet cigar you could puff on all day long – simply awesome. Take the same Dominican long-filler blend as the Cu-Avana natural, wrap it in a gorgeous natural maduro leaf, and you’ve got yourself a winner! Mild, smooth and pleasant.
