Ortega Cubao

Description

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.

I was pleased with these smokes, they are nice smokes, burn well, good volume of smoke, easy draw. I will buy them again. Let them rest for a couple of weeks in your humidor after receiving them for best results. The longer I stored them the better they got.

Notes on the toro. Flavor: high. Body: medium. Draw: a little hard, but still always flavorful and not frustrating. Burn: good and slow. Retrohale: very pleasant and satisfying throughout. First third: a pleasant, light dash of pepper, lightly salted peanuts, caramel, green apples and pear. Second third: a perfect, thick, juicy steak with just the right amount of pepper crust. Final third: the lightest dusting chocolate notes like the top of tiramisu or creme brulee. A define buy at full price by the stick at the cigar store, by the box, and a steal on special.

Will absolutely be adding these to my humidor!!! The flavor is amazing and I was able to finish this cigar with not feeling like it was burning hot towards the end. This was definitely a treat and 10/10 would recommend for a well built medium cigar.

Hard to pull. Doesn't produce alot of smoke. Maybe it needed some time to sit in the humidor. Maybe it needed a cigar poker to open it up. Gonna let them sit for a little while longer

This is a great cigar if you let it build slowly and come to you. I did a review on youtube, lost in smoke. subtle sweetness in there if you're patient and don't smoke too fast.

I am a average cigar smoker. Not "refined" by any means but I know a good cigar. This cigar was rolled well, smoked well and burned evenly. Aroma was good Not harsh on the palate and was very enjoyable. Definitely on my top five list.

I’ve smoked 3 of these so far. A good consistent smoke. Held up to the dry conditions in the desert southwest. Smoked the whole thing without peeling. Consistent, smooth flavor this far.

First draw was loaded with spice/pepper then smoothed out with complex mixture of leather and a little sweetness. Very flavorful experience on this well constructed stick. Highly recommended at this price point.
