Heavy is the head that wears the crown.
There aren’t too many cigars that can lay claim to being the official cigar of King Alfonso XIII of Spain. With origins dating back to 1884 when a young Spaniard opted to open a humble cigar factory, this legendary brand boasts quality construction and superior craftsmanship. Fast forward to today, and the same still holds true as each cigar is rolled at Tabacalera A. Fuente in the Dominican.
Cuesta-Rey Centenario is super smooth, super creamy, and mellow to medium-bodied. It comes in two equally impressive formats: A Connecticut-shade natural or Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Each is filled to the brim with well-aged, top-notch Dominican long-fillers that have been resting an average of five years inside a cedar-lined humidor for maximum flavor.
Cuesta-Rey Centenario is everything you love about Dominican cigars: mild, creamy, slightly cedary, with a nutty flavor in the Claro and a sweetness in the Maduro, and all impeccably constructed to Fuente standards. It's in a similar vein to other mild J.C. Newman offerings like Montesino and La Unica, though a bit fuller-bodied than either of those. Big winners: the Belicoso No. 11, the Toro No. 60, and the Robusto No. 7 (which at 4.5 x 50 is really a Rothschild).
