Way back yonder in 1884, a young Spanish immigrant opened a small cigar factory that blossomed into the birth of the Cuesta-Rey brand. In modern times, Cuesta-Rey premium handmades are all constructed at Tabacalera A. Fuente in the Dominican Republic, and they still retain the same dedication to quality, consistency, and excellence that was started so many years ago.
Cuesta-Rey Cabinet Collection features a blend of well-aged Dominican long-fillers that are laid to rest in aromatic, cedar-lined cabinets to really allow the flavor notes to mature. The Cabinet Collection comes in your choice of African Cameroon, Connecticut Shade or Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, and each option offers a distinctive, refined mild-bodied experience. Notes of coffee and spice are present in force, but the cigar still manages to remain smooth and balanced from start to finish.
This is one of my favorite mild-medium cigars. Construction is excellent, as is the draw. The burn is straight and slow, with a nice grey-black ash. I used to have a very refined "Cigar Pallet", able to detect earth, mineral, nuts, chocolate, coco, cedar, etc...but alas that is no longer the case. The 27 pills I take each day have destroyed my pallet. I can, however derive great enjoyment from cigar smoking. I enjoy trying cigars I haven't smoked before...after all, that's what it's all about...it's the only way one can find the cigars we just can't do without. cigarsinternational.com is my "go-to" source for cigars, and accessories.

Hard to Find

Have been smoking Cuesta-Rey's for years. Truly a great smoke for my taste.Mid-Mild with a good wrap and draw. But these puppies were hard to find until I became a Cigars International customer. Great pricing and quick deliveries.
