The Cubao is back!
Back in the day, a cigar called the Cubao made quite a splash in the cigar world. It was created by Erik Espinosa and Eddie Ortega, produced by Don Pepin Garcia’s factory in Nicaragua, and received rave reviews and a 92-point rating. The brand was discontinued from the market when one of its rare components became unavailable, but much to the delight of aficionados everywhere, it’s making its triumphant return.
Containing the same blend as the original release, Cubao is being produced by Carlos Sanchez’s factory in Nicaragua. Just like before, a beautiful Ecuador Sumatra leaf lays atop a Nicaraguan Binder and fillers from Esteli and Jalapa. Also just like before: the flavors are graceful, smooth, and rich, and full of cream, pepper, and cedar notes in perfect balance. If you lamented the loss of the previous iteration of the Cubao, or you’ve never heard of it before and you’re just looking for classic Cuban-esque flavors at a great price, you’ll want to add a box of Cubao to your cart ASAP.
