You know if King Alfonso XIII of Spain chose Cuesta-Rey as his official cigar, then it just has to be good. Those blue-blood types don’t mess around. Known for excellent quality, fine taste, and exquisite craftsmanship, these luxury cigars were the brand of choice for no less than a king. A glowing recommendation for a brand that’s well worth the hype.
Cuesta-Rey Centro Fino features a hearty blend of five-year-aged Dominican ligero long-fillers. A flavorful and rich Sumatra-seed Sungrown wrapper is cultivated on the Oliva family farm in the highly fertile Quevedo region of Ecuador. Each leaf is hand-selected from the “Centro Fino,” (fine center) of the plant. Medium to full in body, Cuesta-Rey cigars are then patiently aged in Spanish cedar-lined cabinets, which bring out even more pronounced flavors. Rich, bold, and evenly constructed, it’s simple to see why good old King Alfie loved ‘em so much.
“One of my favorites, it has a spice to it but it is not overbearing, there are woody notes mellowing to peppery in the body. overall a smooth smoke, fairly even burn and consistent from cigar to cigar. the aroma is light as well as appealing, it has a medium bodied smoke and the woody noted seem to settle nicely. If you like a cigar with a spice, I would choose this one.”
